Microsoft today is pushing out a new update for its OneDrive app for Windows 10 devices. The latest update is available for Windows 10 users who have updated to the latest version April 2018 Update.

The update comes with major new features along with the usual bug fixes and performance improvements. OneDrive will no longer sync your files when the “Battery Saver” is enabled. Users will be receiving a notification informing the same with a pop up to ignore Battery Saver and continue to sync.

Once ignored, OneDrive continues to sync your files but this could lead to exhaustion of the battery left over. Microsoft is enabling this feature to help users conserve battery life on their devices.

Microsoft has also added a new feedback option in the OneDrive app which lets users inform about any issues or send any positive or negative feedback regarding the application directly to the development team.

There are also new improvements made to the Activity Centre of the OneDrive application for Windows 10 users which now shows the complete status of the related activities. OneDrive is Microsoft’s Cloud based application for Windows 10 users to access files saved on the cloud.

The Microsoft cloud service application is also available for users on iOS and Android along with Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile users. Below is the full changelog of the latest update:

  • Pause OneDrive sync when Battery Saver is on.
  • You can Send Feedback to Microsoft’s OneDrive team.
  • New and improved Activity Center.

Microsoft had earlier in the month announced that it is working on new features for the Windows 10 OneDrive desktop client and the latest update rolling out today comes with the features announced earlier. The latest update is rolling out with new version 18.131.0701.004 and can be downloaded from the Microsoft Store for Windows 10 users.

    Folder sharing for business users would be really nice.
    I appreciate you can open the link, log out, log in, select classic interface, sync and then wonder why the folder shows up as a separate One Drive account, but that isn’t really practical.
