Get more out of the new OneDrive app on Xbox One

Feb 19, 2014

Along with the announcement of the worldwide availability of OneDrive comes word that Xbox One owners will find new features on their new OneDrive app.  

As Xbox Wire reports, “OneDrive is the perfect way to share your greatest gaming moments on Xbox One. The process is painless: just use Game DVR to capture epic moments of gaming, edit and personalize them in the Upload Studio and use OneDrive to share them with the Xbox community or beyond on Facebook, YouTube or any other site you can imagine.”

You can also take your gaming clips on the go with OneDrive, and show off your latest battle or racing scene from your phone or tablet. And if you want to share videos, photos and slideshows, you can, directly from your console. With auto-upload now on Android as well as iOS and Windows Phone, OneDrive allows you to immediately browse photos on your TV.

With OneDrive on Xbox One, you can also earn achievements for milestone moments in the app, such as opening the app in the first week, playing 20 photos from your camera roll in a slideshow in the first week and viewing 10 photos from your camera roll.

When you open a OneDrive account you receive 7 GB of free storage, but with a new program, OneDrive customers can receive an additional 8 GB (for a total of 15 GB) by enabling their camera roll backup (3 GB) and inviting their friends (up to 5 GB in 500 MB increments).

But wait, there’s more! The OneDrive team will award 100 GB of complimentary storage for a year to 100,000 people (that’s enough to store 3,400 1-minute game clips or roughly 44,000 photos!). Follow @OneDrive for details on this promotion.

The updated app will roll out for Xbox, Windows Phone, iOS and Android to connect all of your content seamlessly across all of your devices.
