You Can Now Earn Achievements For Using OneDrive On Xbox One

Xbox OneDrive

Microsoft today made the announcement about the rebranding of SkyDrive to OneDrive and also announced updated Android apps, new storage plans, etc. Apart from Windows, iOS and Android, OneDrive is also available on Xbox One. You can save your recorded game videos to OneDrive directly and share it with your community. Or you can sit back and relax your OneDrive photos albums and videos as slideshows. Xbox One team also announced that you can now earn Xbox Live Achievements for using OneDrive on Xbox One.

Here’s a few of the achievements you can earn:

  • Week one winner – Open OneDrive on Xbox One in the first week
  • Week one wizard – Play 20 photos in a slideshow from your camera roll in the first week
  • Hope those aren’t all selfies… – View 10 photos from your camera roll
  • Long exposure – View 100,000 photos
  • On a roll – Watch five hours of slideshows
  • Now you’re thinking with folders – Add a shared folder to OneGuide

But how much cloud storage does OneDrive give you? When you get a OneDrive account you get 7 GB of free storage. Today, there is a new program where OneDrive customers can go from 7 GB up to 15 GB for free by enabling their camera roll backup (3 GB) and inviting their friends (up to 5 GB in 500 MB increments). Sign up here to get 500mb bonus in addition to 7GB of free storage from Microsoft.

    This is how it’s supposed to be, Microsoft-loyalists should be rewarded for using Microsoft-(Cloud-)Services, similar to Bing Rewards. :-D

    Good way to boost OneDrive adaptation. Too bad Xbox One has not been released in most countries so two of those achievements will be unobtainable for a lot of people :(
