Major updates for Microsoft ‘s oneDrive
We always prioritize feedback from our customers. And today, we’re announcing a number of exciting updates to both the web and our mobile app that deliver on some of the top requests we’ve received. These updates will be rolling out to OneDrive users over the coming days.
More beautiful photos and videos
Viewing photos as small thumbnails can be a strain on the eyes. To make the photos and videos you care about easier to see, we’ve increased the size of thumbnails to create a more beautiful view of your photos and videos.
We’ve also added your videos to the All Photos view to make it easier to find and watch the videos you love.
You may also notice that our video playback has improved with this release as well as adding support for more browsers and mobile phones.
Album Cover Customization
OneDrive automatically creates rotating covers for your folders to give you a peak at the photos inside. There are many times, however, when it might make more sense to just select one and set it as a static cover photo. We’ve heard your feedback!
Now you can easily set the folder cover by selecting the photo you want, clicking Manage, and then selecting Add as cover.
A few months ago we made it possible to natively publish photos on OneDrive to Facebook. This update brings the ability for you to also publish videos to Facebook too!
But the really exciting thing about this is that the videos (and photos) you share to Facebook are natively published. So when you have that awesome video you want your friends to see, they can see it straight in Facebook (without clicking back to OneDrive) and they can comment, tag, and do all the things in Facebook they are used to. In this case, this is a video of me riding an Evolve Street Carbon Electric Longboard in our parking lot!
