Software giant Microsoft has announced changes to its OneDrive cloud storage service.
From July, free storage for everyone will increase from 7GB to 15GB, while those with Office 365 subscriptions will see their storage balloon from 20GB to a hefty 1TB.
The new storage offerings also filter through to specific storage plans and include new lower pricing – 100GB of storage will now cost AU$2.00 per month (down from $8.99) and 200GB will set you back AU$4.00 a month (down from $13.99). You can also continue to score up to 5GB of free storage by recommending friends (available at 500MB per recommendation).
Office 365 subscriptions are available for AU$9 per month or $99 for four years for university students and include 1TB of cloud storage.
According to the Microsoft blog, current subscribers don’t need to do anything – the lower prices will automatically kick in when the changes happen in July.
