Changes in User Experience in OneDrive for Business

Microsoft had just released new message in Message Center about OneDrive for Business:

 

OneDrive for Business user experience refresh

Details

We’re rolling out a refresh to the web experience for OneDrive for Business, which gives your users a new clean simple browser experience. As part of First Release, you will get an opportunity to preview this experience first.

If user Alex Darrow (AlexD) works at Contoso (contoso.onmicrosoft.com), his current OneDrive URL is https://contoso-my.sharepoint.com/personal/alexd_contoso_onmicrosoft_com/Documents/Forms/All.aspx.
You can view the new web experience at https://contoso-my.sharepoint.com/personal/alexd_contoso_onmicrosoft_com/_layouts/15/onedrive.aspx.

While this is the only way you’ll be able to view this new experience today, we’ll be sending out an updated communication in the next month with more information you can share with your users.

Tenants that have signed for Office 365 First Release can now see changes by going to:

https://"Tenant_Name"-my.sharepoint.com/personal/”UserName_Domain_com”/_layouts/15/onedrive.aspx

and the address to the current view is:
