Hi @frob
Per my research, there is no obvious difference in co-authoring between SharePoint Online and OneDrive.

You could refer to the two articles for more information:

Hi @YiLu-MSFT

  • Is there any limit on how many people can co-author a document simultaneously?

  • Does co-authoring work on all file types or only certain file types?

  • Does the OneDrive Desktop app support real-time co-authoring as well or is it only via Browser?

Thank you so much.
