Now you can see your OneDrive photos on Android Wear watch. Just tap and hold on your watch screen and choose Watch face.

With the OneDrive watch face, each time you activate your watch, we’ll show you a great photo from the last 30 days. It’s a fun way to personalize your watch, and new photos will rotate through every month.

PDFs built-in experience

This latest update also made it easier to read PDFs within OneDrive. Now you can view and search within PDFs with the new built-in experience.

You can get the latest OneDrive app for Android from PlayStore.

Cortana helps you to search OneDrive

The OneDrive app for Windows Phones too got the update. This update has made finding files in personal OneDrive very easy. One has to just go to Cortana and tell her to find the notes you jotted or the photos you wanted. One has to say for example “OneDrive search for Hawaii sunset photos” to find pictures from Hawaii. One can also search for a specific word or a phrase within an office document or a PDF
