OneDrive for Windows customers are gradually receiving visual updates.

In July, there was a leak about OneDrive Windows 11 getting a design makeover. This improvement is currently quietly being sent to various users.

The information was revealed by the UI element changes in the programme, as seen on the tech news website Dr. Windows. As anticipated, the upgrades benefit OneDrive by giving it features with more rounded corners to better complement the current style of Windows 11. Additionally, as noted in the prior article we shared in July, the redesign just affects the app’s appearance. Despite this, there are no new features in this release, even though certain functions have improved sets of explanations. For instance, Dr. Windows pointed out that this update’s “Files on Demand” feature is more complex.

The new dark and light settings are just a few of the significant visual enhancements in this version that make the visual redesign project rewarding. In addition, the user account, alerts, and the “About” page have new left-side tabs that resemble Windows. The latter offers a sign-in option for OneDrive Insider preview updates and app version details. Microsoft has made it simpler to determine how much storage the user is currently using by outright displaying a storage bar indicator.

The public distribution of the update (and whether it will also apply to Windows 10 users) has not yet been officially confirmed and announced by Microsoft, so some users may still be without it. However, according to Dr. Windows, the update appears to be rolled out based on users’ locations because the modifications were observed in devices being used in particular countries even though they were not participating in the preview programme.

Do you already have the OneDrive app for Windows’ visual update? Please share your thoughts in the comment area.
