@hn_GBThanks for notifying me on this issue. Yes, it's indeed frustrating. Also as Microsoft points out, searching from one's computer (desktop/laptop) is not a workaround. I have TB's of data in my OneDrive and I don't maintain any indexes in my computer. I always rely on Onedrive's Mobile/Web interfaces and it's indexing service for my search queries.

Is there any progress in this error? I'm having the same problem on onedrive web and one drive app on ios.
Is there realy so many months no good search on Onedrive??

@WenDanMicrosoft doesn't seem to show any interest in fixing this bug. They don't even have an ETA for the same. Do they really understand that we're paying for this service?
It's been like this for months. None of my content searches are working on mobile/web interface.

I'm experiencing this same problem from both my personal data via onedrive.live.com using Chrome and from by Android phone's OneDrive app. Search ONLY finds files with that have the search text in their names. I hunted for something in the Android and online OneDrive configuration settings and came up empty. I have a LOT of files and no good way to find what I'm looking for.

@csnarain I am facing the same issue. Someone said to use Content in the front of the word. However, that gave me results of filenames and none of them had the word Content or the word I was searching for. MS needs to make this easier for users
There is also this option.
I'm having the same problem. I cannot search inside PDFs files. I'm using OneDrive Web. Google Drive is able to do so. This is a real pain point, as I was considering subscribing to Office 365 but I'll wait until this problem is resolved. I have a lot of files, content search is essential.
