Office 365 Update: Company Shareable Links will now open in SharePoint and OneDrive for Business

We’re updating Company Shareable Links (the type of sharing links that are only accessible to users in your company) so that non-Office files such as pictures, videos and PDFs are going to be displayed in the SharePoint/OneDrive for Business user experience instead of automatically downloading the file or opening it in the browser. This will take advantage of all of our new web previewers, and is going to be a better collaboration experience for all your users. We are rolling this out today, and the roll out will be completed by the end of May.

How does this affect me?

Today a Company Shareable Link to a picture, video or other supported files took the user outside the SharePoint user experience, instead opening the file in the browser if supported, or automatically download it – requiring an installed app to open it locally. We will now open files in our web previewers, simplifying collaboration. If we come across a file that we do not support (see linked article for all formats we support), users can quickly download the file like before.
