  1. 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.

  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. 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

  5. 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.

This is not like the personel vault. Thank you for your understanding

  11. Support for multiple personal OneDrive accounts in mobile app

    Please add support for multiple personal OneDrive accounts in mobile app. Other services already support this, why can't OneDrive have this feature?

  12. OneDrive for Business browser view using Android / iPhone

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Android / iPhone 用モバイル での OneDrive for Business のブラウザー表示について
    OneDrive for Business browser view using Android / iPhone


    ■Description(内容):
    Android / iPhone 用モバイルでブラウザーから OneDrive for Business にアクセスした際、フォルダのセパレータや新しいフォルダを示す記号が表示されない。Android / iPhone 用モバイルのブラウザーからでも​OneDrive for Business のフォルダのセパレータや新しいフォルダを示す記号を表示されるように機能の拡充を希望します。​
    Folder seperators and symbols resembling new folders are not displayed when OneDrive for Business is accessed from Android / iPhone browsers. We hope that this feature will be changed to enable the folder seperators and symbols resembling new folders to be displayed even when Android / iPhone browsers are used.

  13. Further Integrate Samsung Gallery Sync with Seceret Folder.

    When hiding photos to the secret folder, OneDrive could move to Personal Vault or just plain hide the photos from the Samsung Gallery without having to delete the actual photo from OneDrive.

  15. Consider adding the Open in Mobile View option for the OneDrive for Android app

    Consider adding the same "Open in Mobile View" option/ability to the OneDrive for Android app as you have in the new Office app for Android. I was experimenting with viewing a Word document in my Personal Vault with the OneDrive app for Android and it's easier to read a Word app with the Office app for Android.

  17. Lets have a One Drive Photos app

    I use One Drive mainly for the full resolution photos and videos backup. I also use the Google Photos app for the secondary backup. But unfortunately the one drive photos section is not as smooth to operate as Google Photos app. Mid range device with mid range SoC like Snapdragon 665/670/710 based device clearly struggle to navigate in the Photos section of the One Drive. This is even true for my POCO F1 which has SD845. And yes only this section of the app has poor navigation issues. Scrolling is bad, selecting multiple images take more time. Frankly it's not…

  18. External video player for video playback

    Currently, One Drive android app lacks an external video player for video playback (such as VLC or the phone's default video player). I just migrated from Dropbox and Dropbox had this feature, which I'm missing badly.

    A screenshot of the Dropbox feature has been added below for reference. This is very important for me, please consider adding asap. Thanks

  19. Path to originating OneDrive folder in Pictures of this day view

    In the pictures-from-this-day view the path to the originating OneDrive folder should be shown, either directly in the gallery or in the photo's details. So you could jump directly to all related photos even if they bear not the same date.

  20. Sharing files with OneDrive shoud be improved.

    Sharing files with OneDrive fails frequently and it's not an intuitive procedure. I think this shoud be improved.
