Microsoft’s official OneDrive app updated on both Android and iOS devices today. While the iOS update was primarily for fixing a text translation issue, the update on Android was much more significant and added the ability to unlock the app using a fingerprint.

Here’s the official release notes for the iOS update (Version 10.72.5):

Text translation wasn’t working for some users, turning a few options in the Settings page into a confusing game of ‘guess that setting.’ This has been fixed, and will look and read as you’d expect.

Here’s the release notes for the Android update (Version 5.33.4):

In addition to a PIN Code, you’ll now be able to use your fingerprint to lock the OneDrive app.

We’ve improved our grid view to help your photos stand out and look their best as well as making it easier than ever to see what photos are getting backed up in the Photos tab.
