OneDrive for Windows Phone to get offline file access in the future

OneDrive for Windows Phone has gotten a series of updates over the last few months that brought forth a slew of new features as well as redesigned UI, and it looks like Microsoft is working on bringing an oft-requested feature to the cloud storage service: offline file access.

When asked about offline availability of files for OneDrive on Windows Phone, Casey Penk, Program Manager at Microsoft, had this to say:

"Thanks for the suggestion. We know offline access is important, and we intend to bring this feature to Windows Phone. We don't have a specific timeline yet."

There's no launch date yet, but those that wanted offline access will be glad to know that Microsoft is working on bringing the feature to Windows Phone.
