Microsoft Releases SkyDrive App For Xbox 360

Microsoft today announced the release of SkyDrive app for Xbox 360 gaming console. This new app will allow you to enjoy the photos and video you upload on SkyDrive from web or apps through Xbox 360.

It will have the following features,

  1. Shared photos & videos. Share a meaningful event with your friends or family by viewing photos & videos on your TV, or view photos & videos others have shared with you through SkyDrive. Imagine being able to view cherished photos and videos shared by friends and family —like a musical performance, a kid’s birthday, or baby’s first steps—on your TV.
  2. Snap and see. For Windows Phone users, snap a picture and see it appear almost immediately in your camera roll on the big screen. This feels like magic! For example, you could take a quick snapshot of your child making a funny face, fire up the SkyDrive app on your Xbox, and view it right away on your 50” screen. Just make sure you’re using the same Microsoft account sign-in for both Xbox LIVE and your Windows Phone.
  3. Party slide show. Plan a great slide show to play in the background of a dinner party. For example, you could start a slide show of a recent trip for friends, or have holiday-themed photos and videos playing during a holiday party.

The app will be going live later today. You can expect to see it on your Xbox after 10AM PST.

    Once they enable video and music streaming from Skydrive this will be really awesome.

    It would be nice to be able to run a picture slide show from SkyDrive while listening to Xbox Music.
