Just over a month since launching its SkyDrive for Windows and OS X Lion app preview, Microsoft has announced new feature updates and improvements for the cloud storage client. In preparation for the launch of Windows 8, Microsoft is adding a new feature for image sharing, which allows users to view photo libraries from any shared device right within the operating system's Photo application. The total number of files that can be synched with SkyDrive has also been raised from 150,000 to to 10 million. The company has also taken feedback from Mac users and disabled the SkyDrive icon from appearing in the dock while active. The updates are being pushed out to users today as automatic background downloads and installations.
