Microsoft has announced that over 250 million people are using its cloud storage service, SkyDrive. SkyDrive has received heavy integration into the latest Office, so it's no wonder that usage numbers are up. But just how quickly are they increasing? Microsoft says that 50 million new users have joined since Windows 8 launched in October.




It's been a very busy year for SkyDrive and we'd like to thank all of you for helping us improve the service through your feedback, tweets, Facebook posts, and comments. The service continues to grow: since October 2012 when Windows 8 launched, 50 million more people have started using SkyDrive, helping us reach an important milestone - over 250 million people are now using SkyDrive as the new place to save their files.


Microsoft released the above infographic detailing a brief history of SkyDrive. If you haven't already signed up, Microsoft is still offering 7GB of free storage, which is more than competitors Google Drive and Dropbox.
