Microsoft's cloud-based storage service - SkyDrive - has marked a new milestone with more than one billion office documents on cloud.
"Recently we reached a big milestone; our customers are now storing over a billion Office documents on SkyDrive! We're really excited about the feedback we've seen around the new version of Office and the deep integration of SkyDrive," Sarah Filman, a lead program manager for SkyDrive, wrote in a blog post.
With this achievement, Microsoft is taking their cloud service a step further by announcing new features to SkyDrive that allows more sharing and editing experience for the users.
The new feature includes quickly editing and sharing the document in the Office Web App without having to sign in with their Microsoft account.
"With an edit link, all recipients can edit your document-even at the same time. One piece of feedback we've consistently heard, especially from students, is that our current SkyDrive edit links can be frustrating for recipients when they find that they need to sign in or sign up for a Microsoft account just to make a quick edit to the document," Filman said in the blog.
Exceeding one billion documents on cloud storage is a major milestone for the company. It is not known how many documents are hosted by its major competitors such as Google Drive or Dropbox.
