In an official Inside SkyDrive blog post, Microsoft has revealed that there are now over one billion Office documents stored on SkyDrive. On top of that, there are new enhancemens to the service allowing for easy editing and sharing of documents.

"Last week Office 365 Home Premium launched and we’ve seen a lot of enthusiasm over the seamless integration of SkyDrive for saving and sharing your docs. Recently we reached a big milestone; our customers are now storing over a billion Office documents on SkyDrive! We’re really excited about the feedback we’ve seen around the new version of Office and the deep integration of SkyDrive. We’re taking it a step further today by announcing a new feature in SkyDrive and the Office Web Apps that allows a more seamless sharing and editing experience for our customers," Microsoft stated in an official blog post.

Microsoft has also made it to where all recipients can edit your document at the same time! "One piece of feedback we’ve consistently heard, especially from students, is that our current SkyDrive edit links can be frustrating for recipients when they find that they need to sign in or sign up for a Microsoft account just to make a quick edit to the document," Microsoft added. Now, all you have to do is send an edit link to someone and they will be able to edit the document without the need for a Microsoft Account!
