SkyDrive coming to Xbox One


May 4, 2013
SkyDrive helps you keep your files always with you, no matter where you are. As part of this promise, we believe it’s important to have tailored experiences on all of the devices that are important to our customers.

So today, we are excited to announce that we are bringing your photos and videos to your TV through Xbox One, starting on November 22 when Xbox One becomes available. SkyDrive on Xbox One provides a seamless, beautiful experience for you to kick back and enjoy photos and videos in your own personal collection, or those shared with you.

The app also takes advantage of exclusive Xbox One features: You can open photo albums from channels in the OneGuide, play music alongside your slideshows with Xbox Music, and control the whole app with gestures and voice, courtesy of Kinect. It all starts with the simple command, “Xbox: Go to SkyDrive.”

SkyDrive is the best way to see your photos and videos on the big screen via Xbox One, made possible via a collaboration between the SkyDrive team and Xbox team. Jeff Henshaw, principal group product manager on the Xbox team, sat down with Larry Larsen from Channel 9 to demo the app.
