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.
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.
For more, you can follow Microsoft's guide for setting up Files On-Demand.

And some cloud services charge you as business customer for this feature. 😒 looking at you, google.
Google has more developer support and users. They’re laughing to the bank right now. Good feature addition for MS users, though I wonder how well it will work with other MacOS apps.
