Microsoft updates OneDrive with support for iOS 11 features

Today's updates don't appear to have hit just yet, but Microsoft says they're beginning to rollout today.

Word, PowerPoint, and Excel for iOS all now support co-authoring, which Microsoft says makes it easier for multiple users to collaborate on documents. Those include drag-and-drop functionality on iPads and the Files app on all iOS devices running iOS 11.

Starting with the co-authoring feature, users can now see who is viewing their document, what they are editing, and view the edits across platforms including iOS, and. The co-authoring experiences are also available in Office Online and the latest versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint on the PC and Mac, all made possible by storing your documents in OneDrive or SharePoint. If you want these files to sync to the cloud, you'll need to move them manually to the Documents and Pictures folders inside OneDrive. Now it's easier than ever to organize and rearrange your files. Microsoft used SharePoint and iMessage as examples.

Another new feature of the updated OneDrive for iOS that is worth mentioning is the possibility to drag-and-drop files. Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, and One Drive are all gaining new features, including drag and drop support and more. Now you can pull in content easily on your iPad with drag and drop support in Office and OneDrive.

New look and drag-and-drop possibilities are not the only notable changes brought by the new OneDrive. "This means iPhone and iPad users can upload, access, edit, and save content to OneDrive or SharePoint from any iOS app that supports File app integration - a top requested feature", the announcement explained.

OneDrive redesigned to find the files that matter - The OneDrive iOS app has been redesigned from the ground up with a new layout that uses your screen space more efficiently allowing you to find your files faster.

Universal link support for shared files - Being able to seamlessly share and securely access files is essential for teamwork.

Improve reading skills with Learning Tools for Mac-Word for Mac now supports Immersive Reader and Read Aloud, tools previously available in Word for Windows and mobile apps. The interface in landscape mode on the iPhone X is now easier on the eye, too - and the number of file types which can be previewed in-app has expanded to over 130.
