Thanks to the OneDrive for Business support, users can now login to both their personal as well as business accounts at one time.

People with ‘Business’ plans will also be able to organize and open their documents, as well as save new files to the account. Besides that, the camera backup, a feature that automatically stores all your ‘clicked’ photos to the cloud has received some improvement as well. Support for storage access framework has also been added, making it easier than ever to open OneDrive files.
