The OneDrive team have published their monthly roundup of the new and coming features for February 2021.

The list includes:

Dark mode for web

Microsoft is rolling out Dark Mode for OneDrive web,  for both commercial and personal accounts. In addition to its aesthetic appeal, Dark Mode also reduces eye strain and improves the battery life of your devices.

“At a glance” summaries in sharing emails

When users share Word files, the sharing e-mail will now include new information like estimated time to read as well as key points in the document. This will help recipients decide how to engage with the shared document.  Note that files that have been marked as sensitive by DLP will not include this information.
