On Monday, we announced
upcoming changes to our storage offerings, which will give our users more space for their files – especially photos, the most popular type of file on OneDrive. Today we’re publishing updates to our Android and iOS apps that will help you do more from your phone and make it easier to get your photos (and videos) into OneDrive.
For Android, we’ll now automatically upload your videos by default. We’ve also made updates to make OneDrive feel more like a part of your Android device, with an in-app navigation drawer that works just how you expect it to. On top of that, a new, dedicated search button means your important files are only a quick search away. This will help users stay productive while on the go and let them easily view their videos on their other devices – such as their Xbox at home.
And on iOS, we’ve made uploads more reliable (so you should see fewer pesky notifications), enabled camera backup to occur in the background, and made it easier to work on your documents by opening them directly in Office Mobile on your iPhone or Office for iPad.
These update will be rolling out in the coming days. Stay tuned for more updates and keep the feedback coming!
