OneDrive for Android is updated and now includes Discovery View

One of the three most used cloud storage services is OneDrive from Microsoft. This offers, how can it be otherwise, an application for the Android operating system and, the truth is that its functionality is quite large and simple. Well, this development has a new update that includes some very interesting news.

The new version of the development comes directly from Play Store, so it is not necessary to resort to installing an APK manually (something that many, for sheer convenience, surely appreciate). The fact is that apart from correcting small errors – at least in my case some folders with a lot of information no longer randomly synchronize – and improving the speed with which everything runs in OneDrive, there is a novelty that is worthy of mention.

What’s new coming to OneDrive

And this is none other than the arrival of a new functionality to the application, which is named Discovery View. What this new option makes possible is that the user can see in the application interface the things that are really relevant to him and, therefore, that the development is more contextual.

And what does OneDrive rely on to display relevant information? Well in something as simple as the use that is given to the files and folders that are stored. The truth is that when testing the new implementation, in which the use of folders shared by other users is not lacking, the efficiency that is demonstrated is high, but personally it does not convince me much for two reasons. The first is that if you want to see the content that is not used constantly, it takes a little longer than before to do this – which leads to not using it most of the time.

New Discovery View functionality in OneDrive

But the most important thing is to know that OneDrive is capable of reviewing the use you make of the stored data (at least as usual in each case) and, therefore, the suspicions of low of privacity they are there. We will see if this is as I say or if there is a formula for this not to be so. By the way, Discovery View has also been activated in the web-version.

If you don’t have OneDrive, a service I’ve really liked to date, you can install it on your Android terminal using the image behind this paragraph.
