Rumor: SkyDrive to add Photosynth panorama photo support

Microsoft's Photosynth apps for iOS and Windows Phone devices allow users to create full 360 degree panorama pictures. Now there's a new rumor that claims these kinds of photos could soon be supported for uploading and viewing on the company's SkyDrive cloud storage service.

Liveside reports that Microsoft is working on adding Photosynth image support to SkyDrive, but there's no word on when this feature might launch. Currently, the iOS and Windows Phone Photosynth apps allow users to share their panorama images with others via Facebook or Twitter, or by uploading them to the Photosynth website.

The story does not state if the current SkyDrive mobile apps will be updated to include uploading Photosynth images.

Microsoft recently updated the Window Phone 8 SkyDrive app to allow for uploads of full-resolution photos and videos to the SkyDrive website. It also added a new photo timeline user interface to the SkyDrive site earlier this month, along with improvements to both the client and server side of the SkyDrive desktop app that reportedly increases photo upload speeds by two to three times faster than previous versions.
