Microsoft changes the OneDrive storage plans

Today Microsoft announced some changes in OneDrive (the consumer cloud storage) on the OneDrive Blog. To make it quick, here are the changes taken from the source blogpost "OneDrive storage plans change in pursuit of productivity and collaboration".

  • We're no longer planning to offer unlimited storage to Office 365 Home, Personal, or University subscribers. Starting now, those subscriptions will include 1 TB of OneDrive storage.
  • 100 GB and 200 GB paid plans are going away as an option for new users and will be replaced with a 50 GB plan for $1.99 per month in early 2016.
  • Free OneDrive storage will decrease from 15 GB to 5 GB for all users, current and new. The 15 GB camera roll storage bonus will also be discontinued. These changes will start rolling out in early 2016.
