    Its currently being rolled out :-) if you are first release tenant or account, you should already be seeing it.

    The OP needs to specify this is for modern document libraries, classic works fine.

    We are continuing to make our large list experiences better, please keep the feedback coming.

    Spring 2018 update:
    - We now support being able to manually add indexes to lists of any size (increased from lists up to 20,000 items previously).
    - Starting with the February release of the Office 365 Excel client, you will be able to export your full list instead of getting cut off part of the way through.

    What we are working on now:
    - Predictive indexing will start to work for lists larger than 20,000 items so your views will automatically cause the right indexes to be added to your lists.

    In our backlog:
    - Being able to index/sort/filter by lookup column types (like person, lookup or managed metadata columns) without being throttled.
    - Making sure that our REST APIs support querying in ways that will guarantee that the call will not be throttled.

    For…

    SharePoint Online will never be an enterprise level Document Management Solution with these kind of ridiculous limitations. Latest one is if you have 5k+ documents and these documents have metadata field that is a lookup and you try to filter the documents by one of the items from the lookup, and the documents that have been tagged with the lookup value are very old, you wont see that lookup item in the filter. I can go on with whats wrong with Modern libraries and metadata data on SharePoint Online. To top it all off, because its a lookup, you can even do a "starts with search". A workaround is to have a background process that copies the value of the tagged item into a singlelinetext field and filter by that field. Its ridiculous because you have to have a background process that updates the singlelinetext field if the lookup value is changed/renamed. I might open a separate uservoice for the filter issue.

    "In our backlog:

Still in backlog, come on, this should be front and center for release. How can SharePoint Online ever compete as a half decent DMS if large lists are not properly supported.
