Microsoft updates OneDrive across Windows Phone, Android and iOS

Microsoft is releasing updated versions of its OneDrive cloud storage app for Windows Phone, Android and iOS. The update brings several new features and improvements across all three platforms, and helps Microsoft continue its initiative to make its cloud service the one place for everything in your life.

OneDrive for Android has been updated to version 2.7.0 and will allow users to access both personal and work accounts on their Android devices. "This is the first example of how we're creating a single, unified OneDrive experience that holistically addresses what people, businesses, and IT managers need. Because people are increasingly using the same devices and apps to get things done at work and at home, the ability to store and share files in the cloud is essential on both fronts," Microsoft explained.

Those who have the OneDrive for Android app can easily access their personal or work files, easily share those files with family members or co-workers, and more. The app also clearly separates your work account and your personal account, so you don't accidentally backup your controversial personal images to your work account. The app also supports setting up a PIN so your accounts can remain secure.

OneDrive for Windows Phone has been updated to version 4.3 and features the ability to access your OneDrive recycle bin access, as well as a number of bug fixes. This update rolled out last week and makes it easier for you to recover any item you accidentally deleted while on the go.

OneDrive for iOS has been updated to version 4.4.2 with a new, native search experience. Users can swipe down in the app to reveal a search box and find what you need quickly.

OneDrive for Android clearly received the biggest improvements, and Microsoft plans to roll out these enhancements to the Windows Phone and iOS platforms at a later date.

"These updates are just a few ways we’re continuing to make the OneDrive experience on your mobile phone even better and more powerful - whether you’re at home or work. Keep the feedback coming on our UserVoice site and stay tuned for more exciting updates as new features are always right around the corner!" Microsoft added.
