We’ve talked about SkyDrive in the past here at TechNorms and we’re big fans of any cloud-based service that helps make our lives easier. Office 365 integrates Microsoft’s SkyDrive service in a way to let you get the most of the popular productivity suite no matter where you need to use it. By being able to save documents to SkyDrive directly from the Office products, you can access them on the go.

Last installment, we showed you how to get started with Publisher. In this installment on Microsoft Office 365, we’ll walk you through SkyDrive and how it works in Office 365.

What’s new in Microsoft Office 365: SkyDrive?

Take a look at SkyDrive

In the past, we’ve shown users how to use SkyDrive in Windows 8 along with covering the Microsoft cloud service in the past as it evolved.

SkyDrive for Office 365 doesn’t add any additional features because it’s bundled with the productivity suite now. It serves to strengthen and turn Office 365 into a Google Docs-like cloud service.

You can use the SkyDrive within Office 365 to share and collaborate on Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote projects.

You can access these documents on mobile devices as well as PCs and Macs, along with being able to work on files offline.

You can quickly upload documents from the program itself as part of its everyday use.

SkyDrive can be set up through Office 365.
