SkyDrive for Windows updated, plugs into Photos app in Windows 8 Release Preview


Microsoft has just rolled out an update to its SkyDrive app for Windows (as well as Mac), just in time for the Windows 8 Release Preview, which is set for release in a few days. This new update brings SkyDrive integration to the Photos app in Windows 8.

For those looking to have SkyDrive integration with your Photos app in Windows 8, now you can finally enjoy this feature. “SkyDrive for Windows desktop will power a cool new feature in the upcoming Windows 8 Release Preview, available the first week of June. Right from the Photos app in Windows 8, you can fetch photos stored on your other PCs that have SkyDrive installed – no matter where you are or how many terabytes of photos you have stored on the PC you are accessing. We’ll have more to say about this shortly, so stay tuned,” Microsoft explains. You don’t really need to do anything to attain this update (build 16.4.4111.0525), as the update was installed automatically in the background.
