Microsoft today announced three new updates for OneDrive service related to photos. Those are full res photo upload in WP8.1 devices, new photos view in OneDrive on Xbox One, Wallgreens integrated to OneDrive web for easy printing.
Xbox on OneDrive:
We launched OneDrive for Xbox so you and your family could view and enjoy all of your photos and videos right from the biggest screen in your house, your TV. And beginning with the updates that are starting to rollout today, we’ve made it even easier to sit back and relive your memories.
First, you will longer need an Xbox Live Gold Subscription to use OneDrive for Xbox. This change will hit consoles soon as part of the June Update. Second, we’ve made it faster to get to the photos that you’re looking for. As soon as you say, “Xbox, Go to OneDrive” and launch the app, you’ll see your most recent photos. Want to see your pictures from across all your folders – just like the “All Photos” view at OneDrive.com – organized automatically by time and date? Just select “more” and a timeline of your photos will pop right up.
Photo Printing Comes to OneDrive with Walgreens.com;
OneDrive customers in the US can now print photos from OneDrive.com directly to their local Walgreens. To print your photos, just select the photos you want on OneDrive.com, click Manage, and then choose Order Prints. You can specify the size and quantity and they’ll be ready for pickup from your local Walgreens in about an hour.
As a special promotion, Walgreens is offering a 25% discount on all orders from OneDrive. Just use the coupon code ‘ONEDRIVE’ during checkout.* So give it a try now and then head on over to your local Walgreens – your photos will probably be waiting for you by the time you get there.
