With this update, OneDrive users will easily be able to “identify the right file and access primary commands”. However, the simplified view in OneDrive's new interface will also help boost productivity (opens in new tab) as it allows users to focus on the content they're working on as they won't be distracted by additional menus.
Improved sharing experience
In two separate posts, Microsoft also revealed that OneDrive will also be getting a new sharing experience in November of this year.
The company is updating OneDrive's Share menu to provide easy access to additional sharing options such as email, copy link, Teams (opens in new tab) chat as well as manage to access settings.
However, the “Copy link” button is set to be replaced by a footer (opens in new tab) where users will be able to set permissions before copying links and sharing them with recipients.
After releasing the 64-bit version of OneDrive (opens in new tab) earlier this year, Microsoft has continually updated its cloud storage service and it will be interesting to see how these visual and sharing updates pan out.
