Dark mode for web

Roadmap ID:  68868

 

The OneDrive team is always focusing on inclusive design principles to provide millions of our users more choice and greater flexibility. In this effort , we are rolling out Dark Mode for OneDrive web,  for both commercial and personal accounts. In addition to its aesthetic appeal, Dark Mode also reduces eye strain and improves the battery life of your devices.

"At a glance" summaries in sharing emails

Roadmap ID:  66189

 

When users share Word files, the sharing e-mail will now include new information like estimated time to read as well as key points in the document. This will help recipients decide how to engage with the shared document.  Note that files that have been marked as sensitive by DLP will not include this information.

Admins who do not want this new functionality can disable it using the SharePoint Online Management Shell by running "Set-SPOTenant - IncludeAtAGlanceInShareEmails $false"

 

Bookmarks for PDF viewing on iOS

Roadmap ID:  68842

 

Getting back to your important PDFs in your mobile devices just got easier. Use the new bookmark option in OneDrive for iOS to add bookmarks to your important content so you can pick up where you left off. 

Now when you open a PDF on your iOS device you would be able to add or remove bookmarks by  tapping the bookmark icon(on the top-right corner) of the page or by long-pressing anywhere on the page you want to tag.

MSFT - PSA, you may want to remove this link to "OneDrive 64-bit sync client" (was the Groove client) before people start looking for the new upcoming 64-bit NGSC.  It comes up at the top of search results and will confuse a lot of people if they install it :)
