Outlook.com が少し以前にリリースされましたが、マイクロソフトは SkyDrive もアップデートしました。
アップデートされた SkyDrive は、Outlook.com 同様に、Metro UI になっています。（注：今後、Metro という表現は使用されない。Inside SkyDrive Blog では "modern design" と表現されていた）
Inside SkyDrive Blog (2012/8/14) によると次の通りです。ついに Android 版もリリースされる模様。
- SkyDrive.com - New, modern design for desktop and tablet browsers with instant search, contextual toolbar, thumbnail multi-select, drag-and-drop organization, and HTML5 sorting
- SkyDrive for Windows desktop & OS X - Faster uploads for people around the world and tons of bug and performance improvements under the hood
- SkyDrive for Android - A new app that lets you access, upload and share from Android phones
- SkyDrive for developers - Apps built using our SkyDrive API can now store or access any type of file in a person’s SkyDrive, plus there's a new, easy-to-use file picker API for websites (similar to our file picker for Windows 8 apps)
Android 版に関しては次の通り、2012/8/14 から "be available in just a few weeks" とのこと。
SkyDrive for more mobile devices
Back in December 2011 we released the original versions of our SkyDrive apps for Windows Phone and iPhone. Since December, almost 4 million people have used our mobile apps to access their SkyDrive from their mobile phone - and we’ve released a number of feature updates as well as fixes and improvements over that time.
Today, as part of making sure SkyDrive is available to all Windows customers, we’re excited to announce that an official SkyDrive app for Android phones will be available in just a few weeks. 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.
