OneDrive To Get A Bunch Of New Features In The Coming Weeks
Microsoft has been unveiling a lot of new stuff lately and is also improving the overall experience of its previously made available features and services. Today, Microsoft has revealed a bulk of new information regarding OneDrive, telling us that it will be getting new viewing, sharing, curating, managing and search features in the coming weeks.
However, most of these options are just for your photos, which is not a bad thing either as most of the time, people use the OneDrive service to share pictures with their friends and family.
Firstly, the users of OneDrive service on Windows 7 and Windows 8 will be able to curate all of their images from their mobile phones, desktop and inbox with the help of automatic imports. To achieve this, just connect the camera (or USB, or Hard Disk) and back up photos.
This way you’ll not only be able to make them safe on the hard drive of your computer, but they will also be saved in the cloud, which means that you will not have to worry about your data being lost. All of these pictures will be saved in a folder called Camera Imports.
Furthermore, OneDrive will now allow you to take screenshots which will be automatically saved to the Screenshots folder. The process of taking a screenshot is same as before, as you will just need to press the print screen button on your keyboard. This will save the screenshot to your clipboard as well as it will also make its way to the cloud, so that it can be shared easily.
Another feature headed your way in the near future is the ability to view, manage and share images with Albums. Sharing the whole album together will let you share all your photos and videos collectively, saving a whole lot of time.
Although, ‘all photos’ feature is available right now, but this new album sharing feature will provide you with a vast array of options, making your experience much smoother and easier. The album feature will not be restricted only to your computers, instead it will also be available in the mobile browsers and in mobile app for OneDrive.
Searching for the photos will also be made easier by adding multiple filtration options in the future. This will surely help a large number of people who have to depend on OneDrive to transfer all of their data from one place to another.
This is a massive update, and it will not only make it easier to upload more photos and files to the OneDrive cloud service, but to find those uploads as well. What do you think? Share you thoughts in the comments below!
