One of the highlights of the past few weeks has been the final rebranding of SkyDrive to OneDrive. And as part of the rebranding process, Redmond has also renamed the SkyDrive Pro client.
Now going by the simple (and catchy) enough name of OneDrive for Business, this new app is offered to Windows 8.1 users allowing them to view (and manage) their files in the cloud without leaving the comfort of the Modern UI.
This updated application basically packs the same feature set of the previous version — the feature lineup remains unchanged. But it should clear up (or prevent) any confusion owing to its earlier name.
OneDrive for Business is, as the name suggests, only for business. Aimed at users that own a business account on the company’s very own cloud storage service, it allows them to upload and download files with ease, straight from the Metro environment.
The new version is, obviously, offered free of charge to desktop and tablet users running the latest versions of the operating system, either Windows 8.1 or Windows RT 8.1.
Users on other platforms like iOS and Android will also be able to nab the new client from their respective app stores around the globe.
