Windows 11 will finally copy this OneDrive feature from Android and iOS

Microsoft rolled out Windows 11 Build 25163 to Insiders in the Dev Channel earlier today. Our senior editor Zac Bowden covered all of the changes in the update, but one new feature caught my eye. In the latest Insider build of Windows 11, you can choose OneDrive as a share target to directly upload files to the cloud. The reason it stuck out to me is that I assumed it was already an option.

I use OneDrive on my Android phone and share content to the cloud service all the time. For example, I’ll record a few clips of my American football team and watch them in my phone’s gallery. If any stand out as worth saving long-term, I just tap the share icon, pick OneDrive as a target, and select the folder I want the videos in.
