Finally Microsoft release a new Onedrive for Business / Onedrive Unified client… with a catch….
For a long time now, Microsoft have been promising to release new versions of Onedrive for Business and Onedrive into a unified client. They promised Third Quarter 2015 – and today, one day before the end of that timeline, they have announced the new client on this blogpost.
There is a catch however. They are expecting people to sign up to a wait list, which we recommend all our customers do! They are using the reason for this as they want to do a phased roll-out. If we were cynical, we would actually say that this is simply because the client isn’t full baked yet and they don’t want to mess up hundreds of millions of users experiences 🙂 But lets give them the benefit of the doubt, because the current sync experience is really not good at all….
So many clients we have might finally be able to use the new Onedrive unified client and get past the limitations that have existed. We welcome it, but be careful out there early testers!
