Microsoft OneDrive is an engine for Microsoft 365 and not only because it gives access to all your saved content from any device, wherever you are.
Having more OneDrive accounts on the same computer greatly multiplied the possibilities.
Now, Microsoft wants to improve on the collaboration capabilities of OneDrive by adding the option to comment on your photos or files stored on the cloud drive.
How can I use the new Comment option in OneDrive?
Microsoft announced the availability of the new feature in a short post on Twitter.
The @onedrive experience on mobile now allows for comments 💬 to be added to your photos 📷 and files 📂, making it easier to collaborate with @Microsoft365. Available now on #Android and coming soon to #iOS. pic.twitter.com/D9pbCDWg7r

Basically, when you open your OneDrive app on your Android device and you select a file or a photo, you will see the Comment option right next to the Sharing button.
After you touch the Comment button, you can just type the comment and enter it like in a usual chat window.
The actual benefit is that anyone can comment on it if it has access to it, hence the collaboration aspect.
You can try the feature now on Android. Microsoft promises to bring this option to iOS soon.
