Microsoft OneDrivefor Android

6

OneDrive lets you sync your files between all of your devices. By having the app on your Android device, you can sync the photos from your phone and view them elsewhere.

Storage solutions

A cloud-based storage and sharing system, OneDrive lets you access and edit documents photos and other files that you save to the cloud. The app provides access to selected files offline too.

There are a number of OneDrive storage plans you can choose, and with this app, you can use the service on your Android device. There is an option to store files on the device or just online, which helps you control your storage. The app integrates nicely with other Microsoft products, allowing you to edit in Office apps like Word and Excel. You don’t need to use Microsoft to make the most of this storage, but it certainly helps as there is a plan that offers 1TB of storage with an Office subscription.

OneDrive is easy to use, with each function simple to understand. What can be time-consuming is the navigation within the app, which is limited when switching between menus or scrolling.

You can upload new photos from your camera roll, so they sync with other devices as you take them. This feature is a plus for the cloud service. However, the process isn’t flawless, with the occasional upload delay of a few minutes. At times, the process isn’t triggered until you open the app.

Where can you run this program?

OneDrive requires Android phones with version 9.0 Pie.

Is there a better alternative?

Yes. Depending on your storage requirements, you could try Dropbox or Google Drive.

Our take

Since OneDrive integrates with other Microsoft services, it can be a useful tool when it comes to editing documents. Even without that, the seamless syncing between devices makes it a good cloud-based storage service.

Should you download it?

Yes. If you’re using Office products, this app is a good way to collaborate and share, as well as sync your files between devices.
