Microsoft is expanding the way people can comment on OneDrive files. As detailed in a post on the Microsoft OneDrive Blog, the company has extended OneDrive’s mobile commenting functionality to support non-Office file types. The update has already gone live in the latest version of OneDrive for Android.

“OneDrive has long offered mobile commenting on Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint files. Today, we’re expanding that capability to bring mobile commenting to non-Office file types, including photos, videos, PDFs, and over 300 other file types. This experience is now available for OneDrive personal users through the OneDrive mobile app for Android,” the company explained yesterday.

The new mobile commenting feature lets OneDrive users comment on non-Office files that they own, in addition to the ones with edit permissions, as well as the files they have shared with others. Keep in mind that the expanded mobile commenting experience is currently rolling out to OneDrive consumer users, and it’s not yet available for OneDrive for Business. Microsoft also plans to bring the mobile commenting feature to iOS devices by the end of the year.
