Microsoft 365

Windows Phone app gets a new UI and easy access to your work documents; Android apps offers new folder widget and recycle bin support

Yesterday we announced big changes to Office 365 subscriptions that will let our customers store an unlimited amount of files in OneDrive and never have to worry about running out of space. This is an important change, which truly helps make OneDrive the one place for everything in your work and personal lives.
And today we’re rolling out new versions of our Windows Phone and Android apps that continue to fulfill that promise and make it easier to access your files and stay productive while on the go.
Updates to OneDrive for Windows Phone
Our OneDrive app for Windows Phone has been redesigned to make it easier for you to find and open the files and folders that you’re looking for. The new navigation drawer lets you quickly access your recent and shared files, check the download and upload status, change settings, and, most importantly, now gives you direct access to your work account.
Windows Phone Updates
Updates to OneDrive for Android
On Android, we’ve also made a number of improvements to give you more control over your files and folders. First, you can now access your OneDrive recycle bin, so you can find and restore deleted files right from your phone or tablet. And second, the OneDrive app now supports widgets. You can pin folders directly to your home screen for easy access. This has been a very popular feature on Windows Phone for some time, and we’re excited to bring it to Android.
Android Updates
These are just a few highlights from this month’s release. Check out the apps in the Windows Phone and Google Play stores and keep the feedback coming. New updates are always in the works!
