OneDrive for Windows Phone and Android updated, brings Android Wear and Cortana search integration

Microsoft has released an update for its OneDrive apps on both Android and Windows Phone. The latest app update for Android brings Android Wear support, while Windows users will now be able to use the digital personal assistant Cortana to search for their files stores in the cloud. 

Microsoft said in an official blog post,

Finding files in your personal OneDrive with Windows Phone couldn’t be simpler. Now, in available markets, you can just go to Cortana and quickly find that note you jotted down or that beautiful vacation photo. It’s as easy as talking to Cortana and saying, “OneDrive search for Hawaii sunset photos” to find pictures from Hawaii that were automatically recognized as sunsets. Or you could even search for a specific word or phrase that is buried deep within an Office document or PDF.

The update is available in the Windows Phone Store, so if you're a regular OneDrive user on Windows Phone or Android, head over to the respective app store and update the app.
