Microsoft has this week rolled out new features to its SkyDrive service, which has added new notifications to your SkyDrive Live Tile view within Microsoft’s latest Windows 8 operating system.
Microsoft first released their SkyDrive application for Windows and RT back in October 2012, and the new features released this week now enable it to display notifications on the live tile Start Screen, when you add new files to your SkyDrive storage.
Microsoft explains: “Starting today, the SkyDrive app from the Windows Store will start showing you notifications on the live tile when you add new files to your SkyDrive. Now the tile for the SkyDrive app will be useful for more than just launching the app, by providing at-a-glance info on what’s going on in your SkyDrive. Whenever you add new files to SkyDrive, the app tile shows you relevant details. If you add a document, you’ll see the document name, along with when it was added, and what folder it’s in. If you add photos, the tile gives you a nice view of those photos.”
The new features are rolling out this week so you should see the new info on your SkyDrive tile very soon. For more information on the new SkyDrive Live Tile jump over to the Microsoft website for details.
