Microsoft released a lot of new updates for Windows 11 this week. Build 23506 for the Dev Channel brought a lot of new features, such as Local File Sharing Improvements, Post-OOBE Experiences, and Auto Color Management (ACM) Expansion.

But one improvement, in particular, is very important. You’ll be able to greatly improve the battery life of your Windows 11 devices. The build is ready to download if you want to take your time before experiencing the new features.

Windows 11 got another update for Windows Subsystem for Android, and this little patch brings an important fix: you can now see OneDrive folders on your Android device. There was an error where you couldn’t see the OneDrive folders on your Android phone, but now once you update WSA, you should be able to see them.

This is important, considering OneDrive is a place where you can store your files very easily, especially the ones from your phones. So, Microsoft eased the way you can access your files now.

Here’s the complete list of changes and improvements coming to the Windows Subsystem for Android

  • Camera compatibility improvements.
  • Fullscreen mode with F11 now displays a hover taskbar to improve the mouse and touch experience.
  • Local networking (under Advanced settings – Experimental features) now replaces “Advanced networking”. Android apps can connect to devices on the same network, on all versions of Windows 11, respect Windows firewall rules, and work with VPNs.onedrive folder on android
