Microsoft has rolled out the SkyDrive app for Android-powered devices. The company also introduced a revamped logo.

Back in August, Microsoft announced that it is prepping to roll out a SkyDrive app for all the people out there who have Android-powered devices. The Redmond-based software giant touted at the time the fact that the app will let Android users access, upload and share data from their mobile devices.

“The Android app is similar to our mobile apps for Windows Phone and iOS and allows you to browse your SkyDrive, upload files to SkyDrive, as well as share SkyDrive files with ‘Send a link.’ You'll also be able to open SkyDrive files from other apps, as well as upload, save, and share to SkyDrive from other apps,” said at the time Omar Shahine and Mike Torres, group program managers for SkyDrive.

The news is that the aforementioned SkyDrive app for Android has been rolled out to the public. SkyDrive 1.0 has been released to the public and is available for free download on Google’s Play Store here. According to the official description, the app comes with the following list of features:
  • Access all of your SkyDrive content including files shared with you.
  • View recently used documents.
  • Choose multiple photos or videos to upload from your phone.
  • Share your files and photos – send a link in email or in another app.
  • Open your SkyDrive files in other Android apps.
  • Manage your files – delete, or create new folders.

In related news, for the first time since 1987, Microsoft presented a new logo to represent it in the years to come. The transition is currently being made from the old to the new logo. The new one is already being used on Microsoft.com and in several Microsoft retail stores. In time the logo will be fully implemented and will completely replace the old one.
