Microsoft have updated their cloud storage solution, SkyDrive, for both Windows and Mac. The new build is version 16.4.4111.0525 and adds improved Windows 8 integration, noting specifically photos, as well as the usual improvements, and bug fixes.

SkyDrive does have a big change in the form of its Windows 8 photo manager integration, so when a user logs in with their Microsoft account (Windows Live), the Windows 8 Photo app will work with photos from the associated SkyDrive account. Another fancy thing is that this feature will work with the just-released Windows 8 Release Preview.

 

Other notable changes include an increase from the 150,000 files limit to a maximum of 10 million, improved reliability for both syncing and stability, and quicker folder updates. If you have SkyDrive already installed, the update should be pushed to you automatically, the app just needs to be running. If you don't have SkyDrive yet, you can grab it here.
