Microsoft announced today a major overhaul of OneDrive for Web, introducing significant improvements and optimizations to file search, sharing, collaboration, access control, and progress tracking. These enhancements, however, appear to be primarily aimed at enterprise and education users, with no mention of changes for consumer users.
In a blog post, Microsoft highlighted the following features:
The new People view organizes your files by the people you are working with. We’ve created this context-aware, adaptive experience to help you quickly find files you’re working on together. You’ll be able to pin people to top of the view for quick access and activity previews will help keep you up-to-speed on collaboration without having to open the file.
OneDrive for Web now also functions as a Progressive Web App (PWA), allowing users to access cached files offline.
However, these improvements are currently limited to work and school accounts, with no support for personal accounts. Furthermore, there appears to be no plan to introduce similar changes to the desktop client.
