Microsoft has announced in a blog post it will be launching an Xbox 360 client to its popular SkyDrive online storage system today. The new app will allow users to transfer files between any other device connected to their SkyDrive account and their console, including Windows Phone devices. The app also supports interaction through Kinect for Xbox 360, with both voice and gesture control. The blog post put a focus on the Xbox app's ability to display photos and videos stored on the user's SkyDrive account.
Microsoft has been focusing much attention to its SkyDrive division in the last couple of months after reporting that usage of the system had doubled in the last six months. SkyDrive is also more closely integrated into the new Windows 8 OS, and the release of the SkyDrive app for Xbox will continue Microsoft's aim to make its devices more unified. The app will be available to launch from the Xbox dashboard to Xbox LIVE Gold members from 10am PST today.
