Microsoft’s latest OneDrive beta brings a brand new watch face for Android Wear that makes your own photos the background masterpiece. The update also provides the OneDrive app for smartphones and tablets with a built-in PDF viewer.

The new Wear face actually looks pretty neat (for a Microsoft face), with clean white digits that are laid over your very own photos. It’s a lot like the photo faces that come pre-installed on some Android Wear watches, only its digits are much bigger and easier to read.

However, there is one big caveat. Right now, it seems there’s a bug that prevents photos from being displayed for some, so the face gets stuck on the stock photo that comes pre-installed. Hopefully, Microsoft will fix that before this update loses its beta tag.

Those who use OneDrive to get stuff done will also welcome its built-in PDF reader, which lets you view any PDF document without having to jump into another app. It also packs a handy search function, and the ability to view all pages in the document at a glance in a grid format.

As this is a beta update, you won’t find it in the Play Store without joining the Google+ testing community first.
