  1. Samsung Gallery sync from SD Card

    Samsung Gallery on Android can now sync directly with OneDrive. Previously it was the OneDrive app itself that handled the sync. However it will only work with folders that are in internal memory, not the SD Card.
    Even worse, although you can disable the Samsung Gallery Sync, you can't then re-enable the OneDrive Sync.
    So it is now impossible to sync my photos

  2. Sort photos by date taken not date created in OneDrive

    When sorting photos by date, the app sorts by date file was created in OneDrive as opposed to the date when the photo was taken.

    When looking Photos menu, it list files by upload date or date created in OneDrive, from the user perspective, the date uploaded to OneDrive it's absolutely irrelevant.

    This has been around since before 2015, isn't it time to change how Photos menu lists the content or at least give user the option to choose?

    This bug defeats completely the Photo menu purpose, the one place to see all your mixed by date pics!

  3. Bring back casting to Chromecast for Mobile devices

    Since update 5.29.1 for Android, cast to Chromecast when connected to a Wi-Fi network with a suitable device, was removed without any further notice.
    Please fix whatever instability issues you found and let users know what is included in the latest version.
    The What is new text is so old and untouched that the best selling point is the introduction of the PIN and no mention to what is removed if you update the app.

  4. Regarding offline access behavior for files being uploaded to OneDrive for Business

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Business にアップロードしているファイルのオフライン アクセスの動作について
    Regarding offline access behavior for files being uploaded to OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):
    現時点での、Android 版 アプリにおいて、OneDrive for Business 内のアイテムにオンライン環境で一度でもアクセスを行った場合、アイテムへのアクセス情報がキャッシュされ、[オフラインで保持] の機能を利用しなくても、オフラインの状態で当該アイテムの閲覧が可能な動作である。
    上記でキャッシュされた情報は、OneDrive のキャッシュクリアや、端末の再起動では解消できず、アプリのサインアウトとサインインを行わない限り保持されてしまう状況のため、OneDrive for Business の標準機能として、オンライン環境でアクセスしたファイルに関するキャッシュが保存されないよう制御するための機能の実装を要望します。

    Currently, on the Android version of the app, if an item in OneDrive for Business is accessed online even once, the access information for the item is cached, and that item can be read offline without using the “make available offline” function.
    The aforementioned cached information cannot be deleted by restarting the device or clearing the OneDrive cache, but only by signing out and signing back…

  7. When photos are uploaded automatically, there should be an option to organize them within folders of month or year, like the apple app

    Currently on the android app when photos are uploaded automatically, they all go into one folder and that folder is not able to be changed. This results in the user having one huge file with tens of thousands of photos with hundreds of GB. On the Apple one drive app there is an option for photos to be organized into months or years. It would be great if this feature could come over to the android app.

  9. Only show photos from the pictures folder on photos tab on the OneDrive app

    At the moment, I have my photos backed up into the pictures folder from my iPhone, and tonnes of textures and pngs since I do game development. Whenever I go to my photos tab in the app it just gets overwhelmed with all these ugly texture maps, instead of my photos. The feature to only show photos from the pictures folder is on the web version, why isn't it on the app??

  12. Allow OneDrive to automatically upload photos without having to keep the OneDrive app open.

    Automatic upload does not work when the OneDrive application is closed. Automatically upload should work in the background even if the app is not kept open.

  13. View photos stored in OneDrive at full resolution

    I have stored many photos in OneDrive. They are of high resolution but when I view them in OneDrive Android app, they are displayed in low resolution. The main problem with this is that the text in them is barely readable.
    When I contacted OneDrive support, they told me that OneDrive displays the "preview" of the image at low resolution and to view them at full resolution, I should download them and view them in the phone Gallery app. But, this is impractical to do for all photos I have to view.
    So, please make OneDrive app display pictures in…

  16. Search keywords/tagged people

    OneDrive is so difficult to use when searching for a specific photo. We need the ability to search for keywords such as "beach" or "selfie". But more importantly, the ability to search for a person based upon their name tag that the user creates, and OneDrive should be able to detect all photos of tagged person using the face recognition. Google photos and iCloud have both the keyword search as well as facial recognition functions.. not sure why Microsoft is so far behind.

  17. Modify behaviour when moving files

    Moving files and folders using OneDrive Android app is a difficult task because the only option is to go the root folder and then to migrate to the desired location.
    A good option, included in my favourite Android File Manager, is to provide three choices on clicking the "Move to" button (screenshot attached). They are as follows:
    1. Previous Folder: The folder to which any file was moved the last time.
    2. Current Folder: The folder in which the file is presently located.
    3. Internal Storage: The root folder.
    On choosing any of the three choices, any of their sub-folders…

  19. Live Photos (Motion photos)

    This is the same request as mentioned here, but for Android: https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/913519-onedrive-on-ios/suggestions/10052856-live-photos

    Are there plans to automatically upload the .mp4 file that is created as part of the Live Photos (Motion photos)?

    It would be nice to have these "Live Photos" saved in OneDrive.
    In this way, we can also have them on our computer (in the folder Pictures), if we have OneDrive on it!
