This week at Ignite 2015, Microsoft showed off a roadmap of OneDrive’s plan for the remainder of 2015 and it includes offline support for iOS, Android, and a universal Windows 10 app. The roadmap can be found below but we’ve highlighted a few noteworthy items.
These are just plans but they give us an indication of the direction that OneDrive is going in this year. Two items set for the second quarter of this year focus on iOS and Android, namely a “New mobile PDF experience” and “Send a link from Outlook Mobile on iOS, Android.”
Next quarter we are set to receive “Mobile Offline files (read only) for iOS, Android.” That same feature is set to arrive on a Windows 10 Universal app that’s planned to be released in the fourth quarter of this year.
In addition to a quarterly schedule there is also a list of planned items that have no specific timeline. Included in that list is offline mobile editing, Offline mobile folders, “Mobile PDF annotation support for iOS, Android” and more.
It’s nice to see OneDrive’s direction and that there’s a Windows 10 Universal app on the way. This year’s plans seem to focus on offline productivity and keeping the three major platforms that OneDrive is used on updated and fully featured.Further reading: Cross platform, Office, OneDrive
