OneDrive Files On-Demand coming to Mac, now available for Insider testing

As Microsoft kicks off its Ignite 2018 conference today, it's announcing that one of OneDrive's most useful features is now headed to Mac users. Files On-Demand, which lets you see your OneDrive files from Finder without eating up any local storage, is now available for testing with Insiders before it rolls out to everyone at a later date.

From Microsoft:

Today, we're announcing OneDrive Files On-Demand for Mac, a way to access all your personal and work files from the cloud in Finder without using storage space and only download them when you need them. Files On-Demand gives the Mac an intelligent connection to the cloud and is just one more example of the power of Office on the Mac platform.

Files On-Demand will land for all OneDrive for Mac users at a later point, but you can get an early look by opting in to become and Office Insider. You'll want to make sure you're updated to Mac OS Mojave 10.14 and download the OneDrive Files On-Demand for Mac preview build to get started. During setup for new users, Files On-Demand will be turned on by default.
