Microsoft's OneDrive for Android will soon support several new features for viewing PDFs. According to several entries on the Microsoft 365 Roadmap, OneDrive for Android will soon support a night time reading mode, outlines within PDFs, and jumping to specific pages of PDFs.

The features are all marked as in development and could arrive as soon as this month. As is always the case, the release dates of any features on the Microsoft 365 Roadmap are subject to change.

First up, OneDrive for Android will soon support a night time reading mode. The Microsoft 365 roadmap states:

Users of OneDrive for Android will be able to change the appearance of PDFs in three main color modes which are day mode, night mode and sepia to enhance viewing.

Another item on the Microsoft 365 Roadmap states that the app will support outlines for PDFs:

Users of OneDrive for Android will be able to view an outline or table of content that they can use to navigate to.

A final related item discusses the upcoming ability to jump to pages within a PDF:

Users of OneDrive for Android will be able to move through PDF by typing the page number in Jump to Page.

Once all of these features roll out to OneDrive for Android, the app should be significantly better for viewing PDFs. Some of the features appear to be on the way to iOS as well, including the ability to jump to pages.
