  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. Folder sync like pc one drive app for Android

    Hey Microsoft team , i wonder why you guys are not making sync app for one drive through which we can sync any folder from our android local storage one way or two way . I mean your one drive will surely beat all other clouds there. I can bet.

    You can sell this app separately in 150-200rs (one time payment) . So atleast we don't have to depend on third party app (FolderSync, autosync one drive etc.)

    Come on Microsoft team this should not take time because you giys are experienced and know your software very well. Provide this…

  3. 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!

  4. About the “Camera upload” function on the Android OneDrive app

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Android 版 OneDrive アプリの [カメラ アップロード] 機能について
    About the “Camera upload” function on the Android OneDrive app


    ■Description(内容):
    カメラ アップロード機能をオンにした場合、端末内のローカルにある写真データが、OneDrive for Business 上に自動生成される 「カメラロール」というフォルダー内に同期される動作であるが、複数台のデバイスで本機能をオンにした場合、全デバイスのローカル データが「カメラロール」フォルダーに格納されてしまうため、管理が煩雑になってしまう。そのため、カメラ アップロード機能をオンにする際に、OneDrive for Business 上の任意のフォルダーを選択して同期できるよう機能の拡充を要望します。

    If the camera upload function is turned on, then image files held locally on the device are synced with the automatically created “Camera roll” folder on OneDrive for Business, but if the function is enabled for multiple devices all of their local image data goes into the “Camera roll” folder, making it hard to manage.
    Please make it so that you can choose which folder this data…

  5. 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.

  7. Disable Photos Icon option

    For privacy just add the function to "disable photos icon" option, on OneDrive main screen. I prefer to access it directly, from the folders, on "archives" icon.

    /// Para privacidade, favor adicionar a função "desativar ícone de fotos", na tela principal do OneDrive. Prefiro acessá-las diretamente, nas pastas, do ícone "arquivos".

  8. 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…

  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??

  10. 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.

  11. Ability to star files and folders

    Please add an option to star important files and folders. This would enable viewing all those in one central location.

  12. 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!

  13. Turn photo tags back on

    Bring back the photo "tags" or hashtags. It was so much easier to find a picture of say my truck or flowers by searching "truck"/"flowers instead of scrolling for it through the 15,000 selfies of the kids.

    While you can search for users, attempting to use “Send a copy” will not show anything in the Teams chat log, so please fix this.

  19. Restore the tagging feature in Onedrive

    Tagging photos in Onedrive has been a regular practice for me. I have thousands of photos, and tagging them allows me to filter, count, and search them easily. A recent version of Onedrive removed much of the tagging functionality. I find this disappointing since I relied on it so much. I would like to see tagging support restored in a future release of Onedrive.
