The preview versions of Office 2013 have been around for a while, with millions of users registering for an account to give the new productivity suite a spin.

And according to Microsoft, users of the Office preview builds have saved more than 1 billion documents in their SkyDrive accounts, which is quite another proof that integration of the cloud-based storage service is one of the key features of the new suite.

“Recently we reached a big milestone; our customers are now storing over a billion Office documents on SkyDrive! We’re really excited about the feedback we’ve seen around the new version of Office and the deep integration of SkyDrive,” Sarah Filman, a lead program manager on SkyDrive, said.

Whenever you wish to save a specific Office document in the SkyDrive account, you only need to access the “Save” menu in Office 2013 and choose the SkyDrive option.
