We are excited to announce cloud filesharing in the latest Skype Insider Build! With OneDrive in Skype, it is now possible to simply send a link to a shared document instead of transferring the whole file.
To share the links from your personal OneDrive,
- Open the chat with the contact you wish to share the file with
- Click on the + icon located on the bottom of your chat window to open the Content & Tools menu, scroll through and select OneDrive
- Select the file, or folder, you wish to share from your OneDrive into the chat
It's that easy!
If your contact is on a mobile device and has the application available, the file will open directly in that app, and not in the browsers. If your contact does not have the application installed, the OneDrive web site can preview most commonly used filetypes.
Try this feature out and send us your feedback!
