Microsoft has released an update to the OneDrive for Windows Phone app, bringing on device access to your recycle bin in the cloud based storage service. To this point, in order to access your Recycle Bin, you had to visit the OneDrive website. This is no longer the case for Windows Phone users.
The updated OneDrive for Windows Phone is version 4.3 for those keeping score and aside from the added Recycle Bin support, Microsoft states that there are other “bug fixes” in the release. What those fixes are exactly is unknown but likely are around keeping the app stable.
What is interesting about this release is that it brings Recycle Bin access to Windows Phone users which is not something that is
available in either the iOS or Android versions of the OneDrive app. That means, rightfully so, that Microsoft has given OneDrive for Windows Phone a feature update before the other major mobile OS’. It’s good to see Microsoft taking care of their own!
I’m going to assume with this audience that everyone knows of OneDrive and uses it but just in case… OneDrive is Microsoft’s cloud based storage that is accessible from Windows, Mac, Windows Phone, iOS and Android devices. 100GB of storage is $1.99 per month while 200GB is $3.99 per month. If you are an Office 365 subscriber, you get an impressive 1TB of storage as part of your $9.99 per month plan (including the latest versions of Office online and for download on your PC or Mac). For those who just need a small amount of storage, you get 15GB of storage free when you sign up.
