As the competition for cloud storage continues to heat up, Microsoft has announced a few new features it will be rolling out within the next 48 hours to its SkyDrive service.

All Photos View

This view will be updated like the image above, which will sort all of your pictures into a timeline view. They’ll be organized into groups based on events and times. You’ll also be given the opportunity to view your pictures in Filmstrip View, which will let you watch then in a slideshow.
