As officials have made clear previously. those using SharePoint Online, rather than SharePoint on-premises, will get all new features first. Some of the features on this list won't ever make it into SharePoint on-premises, as some of those are cloud-dependent (for example, anything dependent on Office 365 Groups or the Office Graph).

But the comapny does plan to provide some other SharePoint-OneDrive synchronization in the interim period.
