Boosting OneDrive storage space to 1TB seemed like a big deal, right? Well, just over three months later, Microsoft has announced another storage increase to the platform. And it’s a big one.
In the coming months, Office 365 subscribers will gain access to unlimited storage space in the cloud at no extra cost. You read that right: combined with recent updates uploading, users will be able to upload anything and everything that they want. The update will begin with the Home, Personal and University iterations of the platform before moving on to business plans early next year.
Either way, it’s time to stop thinking about what you’ll be able store in the cloud, and start thinking about what you’re going to store there. If you’re already on OneDrive and have files lying around on your computer that you didn’t want taking up space in the cloud, there’s no need to worry anymore. Upload away!
The move will no doubt serve to shake things up in the cloud storage industry, as Microsoft’s competitors are not yet offering their own “infinity cloud” option. Combined with the Office Web Apps coming standard with an Office 365 subscription, the tech giant is making a powerful argument in their favor.
While this new feature is still a few months off, non-business users can sign up for early access to unlimited storage right now.
