Microsoft detailed yesterday some UI and UX improvements coming to the OneDrive web app for Office 365 customers this month. First of all, the File Over Card is now available for all file types, and it can also show you who has access to your files inside and outside of your organization.


The navigation bar on OneDrive for Business and SharePoint has also been updated to use the same Fluent Design language available on other Office 365 web apps like Mail and Calendar. The new design will also respect your company-branded suite header, as seen in the image below. Lastly, Microsoft has updated the help pane which now offers contextual help.

These two updates to the OneDrive web app will roll out to all Office 365 in February, along with the ability to choose the save location when you scan objets with the OneDrive mobile apps.
