Microsoft has recently informed all its Office Live Workspace users via email notification that all the Office Live Workspace accounts will soon be upgraded for FREE. Microsoft Office Live Workspace will be integrated/merged with Windows Live Skydrive, thereby providing facility for every Windows Live Workspace user to store and share documents and photos with upto 25 GB of web space allocated for each account.
It won’t be just about document storage and sharing as the users will also be able to view, create and edit office documents, using newly introduced Office Web Apps. There is no fixed date announced by Microsoft regarding this account upgrade but it appears that the upgrade isn’t too far away.
In the coming months, you’ll receive notification when your Office Live Workspace account will be upgraded, along with further details. Until then, there’s no need for you to do anything.
With this news from Microsoft, its pretty clear that Microsoft wants to provide the best experience and productivity gain to its users by clubbing the forces of Office Live Workspace, Windows Skydrive and Office Web Apps together and give least reasons to its users for making transition to other competing cloud based productivity services such as Google docs and Zoho docs.
