OneDrive for the web is getting offline mode


Microsoft is now rolling out offline mode for OneDrive on the web. So, users will now be able to access Home, My Files, Shared, Favorites, People, and Meeting tabs on the web browser without having an active internet connection.

Users will also be able to see folders, and file names, along with metadata such as file owner, size, recent activity, last open date, and more. Microsoft has also added the ability to rename, sort, move, and copy files offline. All the changes will be synced across devices once the internet connection is restored.

OneDrive for the web

Offline mode uses the local storage of the browser to store certain file information. This is made possible through the OneDrive sync app that stores a cache of your file’s metadata locally. It also promises improved load times for OneDrive in your browser and faster viewing and interacting with your OneDrive files,

For using offline mode on OneDrive for the web, you need a Windows PC or Mac running the latest version of the OneDrive sync app. Once you log in to OneDrive on Chrome or Edge, it will automatically trigger a one-time setup of offline mode.
