Microsoft Details SkyDrive Integration In Windows Phone Mango,Hello iCloud ! !

Windows Phone team today blogged about the upcoming Windows Live integration in Windows Phone with Mango Update. Yesterday at its WWDC, Apple announced iCloud, its web services for Apple devices. Microsoft blogged about the answer to Apple’s announcements yesterday, with the title, Don’t wait for your cloud – use Hotmail and SkyDrive today on your PC, Mac, or Phone. The following are the upcoming SkyDrive integration coming to Windows Phone.

  • Share photos stored on SkyDrive via email, text or IM – SkyDrive lets you store thousands of pictures in the cloud. You can show them off to friends on your phone in the Pictures hub, and now you can share SkyDrive photos with anyone over email, text, or Messenger / Facebook.
  • Share your video on SkyDrive – With Mango, all the goodness you had with photos has been extended to videos. Once you’re finished shooting your video, you can caption it and share immediately on SkyDrive, and the upload will happen in the background while you move on to other things.
  • Browse your documents stored on SkyDrive – Windows Phone lets you view folders and files directly on your phone, so when you group things on SkyDrive, you know they’ll be available with the same folder structure on your phone.
  • See what’s been shared with you – More than 70% of the folders created on SkyDrive are shared with other people, which makes it all the more important to see everything shared with you on your phone. This pivot view will show you the complete list of documents shared with you, letting you open and edit in Excel, Word, and PowerPoint.
  • Search your SkyDrive documents – If you store a lot of stuff on SkyDrive, being able to do a quick search is important. In the Office Hub, you can easily search across your SkyDrive for the document you need without having to wade through your folders and other files
