Today Microsoft has released updates for its OneDrive cloud storage app on various platforms, with the Android app receiving the most significant update. OneDrive is Microsoft’s cloud storage service which was previously known as SkyDrive though the name had to be changed due to a lawsuit. One of the biggest features added to the app for Android is called OneDrive for Business Integration, which allows users to access both personal and work files on the device without having to switch accounts.

OneDrive app on Android will also allow users to upload files to business accounts. OneDrive for Business accounts are provided to customers which subscribe to Microsoft’s Office 365 suite, they receive a terabyte of storage.

While a OneDrive app for iOS has also been released it only allows users to access the business accounts for now. A spokeswoman for the company told PCWorld that Microsoft will be bringing the same unified experience to both iOS and Windows in the coming months. A PIN code can be set up on the Android app and OneDrive files can also be accessed through other applications.

OneDrive on iOS receives a new native search box and a new AllPhotos view. On Windows Phone 8.1 the app gets access to the recycle bin. The app is available now as a free download through Google Play and iTunes App Store as well as the Windows Phone Market.
