Microsoft has announced a new feature that allows Skype Insiders to share files on desktop and mobile platforms via the cloud. This is an integration of OneDrive with Skype.S.

With the integration it is possible to send a link to a shared file, instead of sending the complete file. This is also possible without leaving the Skype app.

You can share files in a chat with the contact, by clicking on the +-icon at the bottom of the screen. Then in the menu OneDrive is selected, and the file or folder to be shared can be selected. If the contact has the corresponding mobile app, the shared file is opened immediately. If this is not the case, the OneDrive website can preview the most commonly used file types.


Microsoft is strengthening the integration of OneDrive with its other products, which may hope to attract new customers. In February this year, the company said it was ahead of the competition when it comes to the cost of OneDrive for Business, the user interface, the possibility of more personalized searches, security and the integration with Office 365. The company also said that over 350,000 companies use OneDrive.

Over the past year, OneDrive has also received several updates. In January, for example, a major update was released for the app on iOS, which included a new user interface. In addition, there were several new features this year, such as Known Folder, an improved scan function and a new Manage Access experience.
