There is great new for Gmail users. You can now send and access SkyDrive files directly from your Gmail account. Not only this, you will be able to even create rules to automatically save certain attachments to SkyDrive.
Send, share and access SkyDrive files directly in Gmail
Attachments.me has released a new extension for Chrome and Firefox, that will allow you to send and access SkyDrive files directly in Gmail. You could even set rules – for example you could set it so that whenever you TheWindowsClub sends you an attachment, you could set it to save it to you “Files from TWC” folder in SkyDrive.
This has been made possible thanks to an update by Microsoft for the SkyDrive developer experience to remove all API restrictions related to photo resolution and content types and to provide a new, easy-to-use file picker API for websites.
If you visit the site using Chrome, you will be offered the Chrome extension; and if you visit it using Firefox, you will offered the Firefox add-on.
To use this service, you may be asked to give attachments.me access to your Google account.
Microsoft is hoping that with the release of this new plugin, it will be able to tap the Gmail users, who will hopefully start using its SkyDrive service to store files.
