In a March 4 update, Microsoft announced that Microsoft 365 web apps will get a new account switcher to allow users to run multiple signed-in sessions and switch between the accounts seamlessly. Not every Microsoft 365 web app supports the new feature, with Teams being a notable miss, but there’s enough there to make this a very useful feature.
Two Microsoft 365 message center notifications covering Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) for OneDrive and Lists are interesting, but the news of the arrival of the new Nucleus synchronization engine within the OneDrive sync client (for Windows) is even more interesting. Together, the combination of PWAs and Nucleus make OneDrive and SharePoint data more accessible to users.
Modern browsers make it easy to pin websites to the Windows desktop and taskbar. Using OWA in this manner is great when network connections aren’t too reliable, like the flaky connections you often have on airline Wi-Fi networks. Other Office 365 apps work fine too when pinned from the browser, like the Admin Center, Planner, To Do, and Stream.
