Ahead of OneDrive rollout, Microsoft now using 1drv.ms short links

In the coming weeks, Microsoft will rebrand its SkyDrive service to OneDrive. Part of Microsoft’s cloud offering is that they make it quite easy to share content directly from your account with various sets of permissions; Microsoft also provides the ability to quickly create a short link as well using the company’s custom URL.

Previously, Microsoft was using sdrv.ms for it’s short link service but seeing as the company will soon be launching OneDrive, they have switched over the service to 1drv.ms.

Sure, not the most fascinating news of your day but it is a little nugget of info that shows that the rollout of OneDrive is going to be happening very soon.

We have seen OneDrive pop up in other places as well. In the leaked builds of Windows 8.1 update 1, SkyDrive has already been renamed to OneDrive which means that at the very latest, OneDrive naming will be switched over in April.

Microsoft was forced to rebrand its SkyDrive service after a trademark dispute and the company is working to remove every last trace of SkyDrive from their product offerings.

The new short link service should be live for just about everyone by now as it has been rolling out to users for at least 24 hours, if not more.
