  • Internet connection: High-speed Internet access is recommended.

The OneDrive mobile app requires one of the following:

  • A phone or tablet with Android 2.3 or later (Android 4.0 or later for Camera Backup and other features)

  • An iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 6.0 or later

  • A phone running Windows Phone 7.5 or later

For the best experience on the OneDrive website, we recommend using the latest version of Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.


  • The OneDrive desktop app isn't supported on Windows XP or Linux.

  • OneDrive desktop app functionality is built into Windows 8.1. If you install the desktop app on a PC running Windows 8.1, Setup won't appear. A setting will be installed that lets you use Office to work on OneDrive documents with other people at the same time, but no other features will be installed.
