Thank you for all the amazing feedback on the SPCNA announcements and as promised we have now begun rolling out some of those exciting features.
Here are the latest functionalities that landed in production in the month of July-2019.
360° image viewer capability for OneDrive
Roadmap ID: 49516
This month, we have rolled out a native 360° image viewer which will enable you to pan and zoom images taken with a 360° camera in a panoramic mode, right from within OneDrive.
When you upload new images to OneDrive, they will be identified as 360° images if they were taken with popular models of 360° cameras, or If the photo aspect ratio is 2:1 (a typical characteristic of 360° images).
To activate the viewer, simply open the image you’d like to view, and the viewer will appear.
Example: photo.jpg renamed to photo.360.jpg
Before the 360 viewer was enabled, 360° images would appear as flat images:
With the 360° viewer, 360° images will be interactive, and user can pan around the images to get the full view.
Updates to File card in OneDrive and SharePoint
With File card, as soon as you hover your mouse over a file you will be able to see file details and access stats. The following updates provide a wealth of information about the file at a glance.
With this feature you can quickly and easily get deeper information like the document’s “Key Points” and the average time to read the document. This information can help you make decisions about which content to read and how to best prioritize your day.
Note: For now, “Key Points” is only available in North America and on Word documents.
This feature shows relevant activities related to the files you’re working on. If someone you work with edits, comments, or @mentions you, that activity is displayed in the File Hover Card with a link to the relevant activity.
Per-Site Anyone Link Expiration Policy
Roadmap ID: 53748
Currently, administrators can require all links that work for anyone (also known as anonymous links) to expire after a set number of days (between 1 and 720).
This new feature will allow administrators to customize the expiration length on a per-site basis. Using this feature, admins can override the tenant policy and set a more or less restrictive expiration policy for specific sites.
This functionality will only be available via the SharePoint Online Management Shell for our initial release. We will bring this to the modern SharePoint Admin Center in the near future.

Full Microsoft Intune support for OneDrive
Roadmap ID: 27028
Earlier this month, Microsoft Intune announced the general availability of administrative templates. With these settings admins can now configure over 2500 settings that will support management of Windows, OneDrive and Office. These settings are available to admins in a user interface that is similar to group policy editor.
We're excited to make it easier for OneDrive admins to deploy our policies when they are managing devices through Intune without having to use custom PowerShell scripts or the manual admin template ingestion approaches they've had to use in the past.
You can learn more about the administrative templates here .
OneDrive mobile updates

As you can see, we continue to evolve OneDrive as a place to access, share, and collaborate on all your files in Office 365, keeping them protected and readily accessible on all your devices, anywhere.
