Microsoft OneDrive to offer 15GB free storage, Office 365 gets up to 1TB
Microsoft is giving out new gifts to new and current customers, in the form of larger cloud-storage on the company’s popular OneDrive service, and it is all for free. The company announced that it has altered the free-tier program for both OneDrive customers, and Office 365 Customers, now all Free OneDrive accounts will now have access to more than double the storage as before, the free-tier is moving from 7GB of storage space to 15GB.
If you have chosen Microsoft’s Office 365 program, then you will get 1TB of space to keep all of your files backed-up and secure. That plan, which offers Office 365 Home for $9.99 per month, offers 1TB per person for up to five accounts. Office 365 Personal for $6.99 per month and the popular Office 365 University accounts for $79.99 for four years, will get 1TB per subscription.
On the official blog.post the company stated, “It’s also clear that you want more than just the ability to store your stuff in the cloud. You want to be able to share it, to collaborate on it, and so much more. The landscape is changing to the point that we believe it’s no longer enough to provide only cloud storage — that’s table stakes. We want to provide a complete experience that brings in the power of Office and lets you do more with everything you put in your OneDrive — whether it’s sharing your favorite photos with the people you care about in one simple click or working together in real time on an important project.”
All cloud-hogs can expect the program change to rollout over “the next month,” but you won’t have to make any changes on your end, it will all be automatic.
