Microsoft has released a major update to its OneDrive app on Android. The latest update brings support for casting to the company's cloud-based storage service.

The company has released version 6.29.1 on the Google Play Store.

The company wrote that the new casting option is available in the top toolbar in the OneDrive Android app. To use this feature, all users need to do is open an image or video on their OneDrive for Android app, tap on the Cast icon in the top toolbar and select the device you want to cast your content on. Once users select their preferred device, they will be able to see their content on large screens.

Android Police reports that while the new option can cast most files, it can't cast the files that it can't playback on its own. So, if a user is trying to cast content that OneDrive for Android can't play on its platform natively, it may take them into another app after downloading those files to local storage.
