Microsoft has announced that Office 365 subscribers will soon receive unlimited cloud storage through the OneDrive file-hosting service.

Customers have previously been offered 1TB of space but, as announced in a OneDrive blog post, unlimited storage will now be rolled out to all Office 365 Home, Personal, and University customers at no extra charge.

"Today, storage limits just became a thing of the past with Office 365," wrote OneDrive corporate vice-president Chris Jones.

"We’re thrilled to continue our quest of making OneDrive the world’s cloud storage leader – and, always a key part of the best productivity service with Office 365. We’re all in! Stay tuned for more exciting announcements over the coming months."

OneDrive also announced the news via Twitter.

Customers are now being encouraged to register to become among the first to receive unlimited storage.
