This release has been in the works for a while, but OneDrive 9.1 is here! Under the hood we’ve completely rewritten the app, so we can bring you bug fixes, performance improvements, and new features faster than ever before. To celebrate this new release, we are rolling out the following features over the next couple of days to our Office 365 subscribers:

Note: These features are rolling out, so you may not see them for a few days. We want to make sure we don’t introduce any new issues, so we are slowly releasing them to more and more users. No update will be required though!

Super Scanning
Ok, that’s not the official name, but it’s easier than ever to go paperless with the ability to scan as many pages as you want and save those pages into a single PDF. In addition, you can now crop, rotate, or delete those scanned pages. You can safely retire that old scanner, it’s services are no longer needed.

Offline Folders
We’ve heard your feedback and know that downloading one file at a time is no fun and you aren’t always connected to the Internet when you need to access that important file. We wanted to do something about that, so we are rolling out the ability to offline any folder in OneDrive and SharePoint. When the feature is enabled, you will find it by tapping and holding on your important folders then tap the new offline command.

Improved sharing capabilities
Ever wanted to only give someone temporary access to a file? Whether it’s those confidential loan documents or your awesome cat photo collection, you can now create links that expire on a specific day. Whether it’s a week or two years from now, just go to your personal OneDrive account, tap and hold on a file, tap share, and Link Settings to get started.

Discover interesting documents
Using a work or school account? We added a new view to help you discover interesting and relevant documents based who you work with and the content that you work on. Take a look at this personalized view by going to the Shared tab and sliding over to the Discover pivot. Let us know what you think.

There is more on the way. As always, your feedback is crucial to making OneDrive better with each release, so please send us any feedback you have.
