Microsoft OneDrive to Get New Shared Experience on the Web This Month

Hero approved Microsoft 365

Microsoft has announced some improvements coming to the Shared experience in OneDrive on the web. The new feature is designed to make it easier for users to find files and folders shared by colleagues through chats, meetings, and emails across Microsoft 365 apps.

“The refreshed OneDrive Shared with you view will show files and folders shared across various Microsoft 365 apps so that users can find files shared with them over email, chats, and meetings all in one place. In addition, users can identify updates to files by using the activity column, as well as leverage filter pills to easily find files,” the company explained on the Microsoft 365 admin center.

Microsoft plans to begin rolling out the new Shared experience to targeted release customers later this month. However, the feature is expected to become generally available for all commercial customers in mid-April.
