Microsoft is bringing two of its most popular consumer services together. The company today announced a new preview version of Skype that introduces native OneDrive integration.
Through the Skype’s add-ons platform, OneDrive is now integrated into the service on Windows 10 PCs, iPhones, iPads, Andriod phones and tablets, as well as the classic desktop apps for Windows, Mac, and Linux Web.
OneDrive integration will allow you to go into your OneDrive account, and share any file you want natively into Skype. You can use the integration with a few taps, and it only seems to share a link to the file on OneDrive within the Skype chat. And that’s fine, of course, but I wish there was an option to actually attach the file and send it through Skype instead of having to go to OneDrive and download it.
Either way, this is just a preview for now, and if you are a Skype Insider, you will be able to give it a try with Skype Insider version 126.96.36.199.
