Microsoft has made official some details about its future plans for its OneDrive app for Windows 10. The company’s premier online storage solution for Windows users will be updated this quarter with differential Sync, automatic photo tagging and more in future updates.
Microsoft is planning to introduce differential syncing to the OneDrive app meaning once you sync a document on your PC or mobile it doesn’t upload the full document again instead it checks the file for changes and sync just the parts of the file which are required. This would be useful for people with large files who make edits since the less data usage will make the syncing time faster.
The company is also planning to add automatic tagging of photos, OCR improvements and more new features. Currently the company has not given any timeline when it plans to roll out these features to the app on Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile.
