  2. Photos on OneDrive

    Why can’t Microsoft produce a Google Photos esque app which can search photos based on AI produced tags? The tags on OneDrive albums are pretty obvious like location tags and not searchable for objects or people. A stand alone OneDrive photos app may help

  8. Improve photos ui

    Photos UI is very slow and inferior to Google. Used to pay for storage in OneDrive but had to switch to Google drive due to quality. For example, albums with more than 100 photos are almost impossible to navigate through both android app and web ui.

  9. Pictures

    When I delete a photo off my iPhone, I would like it to be removed from one drive as well. I take a lot of pictures and don’t want to keep all of them. Now I have to open my one drive and delete the photos I don’t want to keep. It’s a hassle. I started using the app less and less. I decided I like using it, but why don’t you just add this feature. I am sure most everyone will feel the same way.

    Thank you,

    Richard S

  10. OneDrive location settings for photos.

    For me to upload at different locations why does it require me to allow location? That makes no sense if it’s already set to only upload over Wi-Fi? Is there an explanation – please help me to understand.

  11. File names

    Please consider changing the way files are named once uploaded. A date would work nicely. I’m sure the current system is a hit with engineers but most people prefer plain English.
    Thank you!

  12. Stop with the incessant, permanent "helpful" suggestions like how I can upload my camera pics to OneDrive. I don't want to do that.

    Stop with the incessant, permanent "helpful" suggestions such as how I can upload all my camera pics to OneDrive. I don't want to. I hate the idea. Stop ramming it down my throat by always being there. I see the tip. I'm ignoring it. Please hide it.

  15. SLOW-MO Video

    All in all, really happy with the app. However, it would be good if you could upload the iPhones slow motion videos.

  16. Photos upload

    Dear Sirs,
    Please introduce a possibility to auto upload iOS photos with original file names, as well as ability to skip upload of identical photos to avoid duplicates.
    Kind regards,
    Jurij

  18. Face Grouping

    The face-grouping feature as found in Photos app of Windows 10 or as found in the Google Photos app is a helpful tool and the same must be available in Onedrive also.

  19. Photo upload segregation

    I may be mistaken but I cannot find a way to enable photo upload for only one account. I have a personal account and company account but the photo upload settings seem to be based on the app itself.

  20. Provide a method of viewing a folder of photos that looks like the ALBUM view without having to actually create an album.

    The ALBUM view is gorgeous. It is much better suited for scrolling through a folder full of photos than the FILES view. There should be a way to view a single folder of photos in a way that looks just like the ALBUM view, without being required to actually create an ALBUM. In other words, provide a menu selection or checkbox that switches the view of photo files in a folder from the one that looks like the current file view to one that looks like the current album view. Similar to using File Explorer in Windows 10 to switch…
