Microsoft this week announced a new set of updates for the OneDrive desktop client that are due out later this month. All told, there are three major areas of focus here, ranging from improving battery life to modernizing the Activity Center (via MSPU).
Here's a look at what's coming:
- Battery life: OneDrive will now automatically pause syncing when it detects that your Windows machine has switched to "battery saver" mode. You'll see a toast notification alerting you that syncing has paused, but you can override the feature by telling it to sync anyway.
- Feedback: You can now easily send feedback on OneDrive via a new option in the settings menu. You'll be able to choose from three options, whether you like something, don't like something, or just have a suggestion about how OneDrive can improve.
- Activity Center: Microsoft has "modernized" Activity center in order to "improve ease of use and understanding."
As for availability, Microsoft says that all three of these updates will roll out throughout July.
