  1. Major Microsoft OneDrive update will change the way you share your files OneDrive is getting a significant overhaul later this year Microsoft is working on a major upgrade for OneDrive that is set to arrive later this year which will give users greater control over how they share files using the company's cloud storage software. According to four separate posts on the Microsoft 365 Roadmap, the software giant plans to overhaul the sharing experience in OneDrive with new options that will make it easier to share files and manage who has access to them once they've been shared. The first update to OneDrive's sharing experience will come in the form of new options to the service's Share menu that will provide easy access to additional sharing options including email, copy link, Microsoft Teams chat and more. This feature is currently in development and just like with the rest of the new features coming to OneDrive, it will arrive in November of this year. Microsoft is also working on a new “Shared with” list at the bottom of the Share dialog which will give users an at-a-glance view of everyone they've given access to a particular file. Accessing shared files In order to make it easier for users to access files that have been shared with them, Microsoft plans on updating the “Manage Access” experience in OneDrive. Once this update rolls out, users will have access to additional controls that will let them decide how recipients can access shared files. Microsoft will also replace the Copy link button in OneDrive with a footer in its upcoming update. In this footer, users will be able to set permissions for links before copying them to share with recipients. We'll likely hear more on the company's major update to its cloud storage service once we get closer to its release but in the meantime, you can test out the new 64-bit version of OneDrive that offers improved performance and makes it easier to transfer large files due to the fact that it can utilize all of the RAM in your Windows 10 PC. Major Microsoft OneDrive update will change the way you share your files
  2. OneDrive for Android now supports Google Cast Microsoft’s OneDrive app for Android has just received support for Google Cast, allowing users to easily beam videos on Cast-capable devices such as Google’s popular Chromecast HDMI dongles (via Android Police). Google Cast support is live in OneDrive for Android version 6.29.1, though it seems the feature is rolling out gradually. If you own a Google Chromecast or other devices that support Google Cast, the Cast icon will appear on the top right corner of the app when you open a video in OneDrive for Android. This feature can be really useful for OneDrive users who use Microsoft’s cloud storage service to store all their personal videos. Google Cast is Google’s alternative to Apple’s AirPlay technology, and the proprietary protocol made its debut with the original Google Chromecast dongle back in 2013. However, Google Cast is now supported by an increasing number of Android-powered TVs from Sony, Vizio, Philips, and other manufacturers. Will the new Google Cast support make OneDrive for Android more useful for you? Let us know in the comments below. Source: OneDrive for Android now supports Google Cast
  3. Windows 10: The 64-bit version of OneDrive is now available for more users In April, Microsoft confirmed its plan to give the OneDrive program the 64-bit treatment to improve the overall experience on Windows 10. As per a message posted on the admin center, OneDrive 64-bit general availability was delayed until the mid of April and the rollout is now expected to complete by mid of May (later this week). The new edition of OneDrive is designed for everyone with school, home and business accounts, and it will supplement the existing 32-bit version. If you have a 32-bit version or a 64-bit version of Windows, you can continue to use the existing OneDrive program, which is in 32-bit format. However, if you plan to use large files and if you want to transfer a lot of files, and you have a computer that’s running a 64-bit version of Windows 10, the brand-new OneDrive client should be your preferred choice. This is because Windows 10 PCs with 64-bits processors have more resources and can handle additional processing power. As a result, 64-bit apps can also perform better and improve the overall synchronization process. OneDrive is built into Windows and Microsoft has confirmed that it will quietly update the program to 64-bit if you meet the requirements. “We are making a 64-bit version of the OneDrive sync client available for Windows,” Microsoft said. “[The] rollout should be mid-April through mid-May (previously end of April) following the normal. We will silently update user devices from the 32-bit version to the 64-bit version. All functionality is the same as it is in the 32-bit installation.” You can always verify the device’s configuration by heading to Settings > System > About. Under the “Device Specifications”, look for the system type to confirm whether the processor is 32-bit or 64-bit. Once upgraded, the OneDrive desktop will be able to perform better on supported systems and gain access to greater amounts of resources, which should speed up the backup and sync process, especially when you have a huge number of files. As per the roadmap, OneDrive for Android will also get better this month. For example, users can now move through PDF by typing the page number in Jump to Page. In addition to OneDrive, other Microsoft 365 products like Microsoft Teams will be updated as well. For example, Microsoft is expanding the rollout of Teams’ new PowerPoint Live integration to include macOS. Source: Windows 10: The 64-bit version of OneDrive is now available for more users
  4. Microsoft OneDrive app updates on Android and iOS with a host of feature improvements The iOS and Android OneDrive apps both updated today for their respective devices and each update was fairly significant with some fun improvements that go beyond the usual ambiguous and generic bug fixes. The iOS update, which brings the app up to Version 12.23.2, squashes two big bugs that were affecting OneDrive’s VoiceOver feature and re-enabled the ability to make writes to files. Here’s the full release notes: You can once again make writes to your OneDrive files from the iOS Files app. When using VoiceOver on the Plans page, there was no indication that some features required particular plans. This has been fixed and now VoiceOver will indicate when a feature is included with each plan. The app header would sometimes turn white after using the “Take a photo” command, making it very hard to use the + button, which is also white, in light mode. This has been fixed and the header will stay blue again, keeping the + button visible. The See All button in the Home view was appearing in English in all languages, which was puzzling. This has been fixed and now you can ‘see’ it appearing properly in ‘all’ our supported languages. VoiceOver will now read out the buttons in the sign in navigation bar. Some images would appear squished when viewed in a folder and cropped when tapped on and opened in the app. This has been fixed. Thank you to the observant customers who reported this to us and helped us improve. The update for the Android app, which is now at Version 6.27, added a new Home tab for improved productivity by better showing recently opened and offline files. This update also added the ability to reorganize parts of the settings section of the app. Here’s the full release notes for the Android OneDrive app update: We’ve added a new Home tab to help you pick up where you left off, fast. The new Home tab prominently features your Recent view for easy access to your files and an Offline Files section to quickly access and manage files you’ve downloaded for offline access. Find On this Day for OneDrive personal users, and Shared Libraries for work or school in Home as well. Plus reorder the sections in settings! Do you use OneDrive quite a bit?

  5. Microsoft releases 64-bit version of OneDrive for Windows sync client in public preview Microsoft has released today a 64-bit version of its OneDrive for Windows sync client in public preview. The new 64-bit version of the app doesn’t include any new features, but it should run more efficiently on PCs running a 64-bit version of Windows 10. “The 64-bit version is the right choice if you plan to use large files, if you have a lot of files, and if you have a computer that’s running a 64-bit version of Windows,” the OneDrive team explained today. Be aware that the OneDrive 64-bit version is can only be installed on AMD64 devices, and for now Windows 10 on ARM PCs only support the 32-bit version of the sync client. In the Microsoft 365 Admin center, the company also announced that the new 64-bit version of OneDrive will automatically replace the 32-version when it starts rolling out to all Windows users later this month. If you don’t want to wait, you can download the public preview of the OneDrive 64-bit client from this link.

  6. OneDrive for Android is getting support for Samsung Motion Photos and 8K video playback Today, Microsoft announced some updates to its OneDrive app on Android. One is that there's an all-new home screen experience. You're going to see three sections on the new home screen: recent files, offline files, and "On this Day" photos. For those using a work or school account, you'll instead see recent files, shared libraries, and offline files. This new experience is already available on iOS. Next up is Samsung Motion Photos, which are now supported for both storage and playback. You might recall that it was just last month that Live Photos support arrived on iOS, so now it's a similar update for Samsung devices. Right now, editing Samsung Motion Photos isn't supported, so if you make any changes, they will be saved as a still photo. The next and final new feature listed is that you can now play Samsung 8K videos from within OneDrive. Interestingly, Microsoft noted that it's just 8K videos that were taken with a Samsung Galaxy S20 or S21 devices; however, it didn't say why playback would be limited to 8K videos taken with those phones. 8K video capture wasn't something that was exclusive to Samsung phones, as it was enabled by the Snapdragon 865 chipset. The new home screen will show up on OneDrive 6.21 and above, and Motion Photos will be supported by version 6.23 and above. Microsoft didn't say what version is needed for 8K video playback.
