Create a "OneDrive Photos" app
I would like you could create a dedicated OneDrive Photos app, like Google Photos is separated from Google Drive (offering a photos-focused app).
In Windows Mobile is not problem: the gallery is, at the same time, the "gallery" you have in OneDrive. You don't need to open the OneDrive app, and your Photos sync with your local gallery app.
Why we can't have something similar to the Google Photos or Windows Mobile experience?
Thank you and sorry for my grammar mistakes, I Hope you understand me.

I think remaking pictures section is more good way so you'll have all the features on all platforms also having multiple features in one app is better than seperate apps imo
This is a MUST, or at least Microsoft need to improve or fix the way photos and videos are shared. I'm a Office 365 user, so it's my family, and when trying to share photos or videos about my niece and nephew it's such a nightmare I end using Google Photos. We are highly considering migrating from Office to Google One, and like us I think lots of people are.
I completely agree with this. I want to use Microsoft 365 to its full potential but as it stands the Google photos app is so much better.

Even we don't have a photos app, OneDrive's Photos section need to be improved like If you used Google Photos u know It directly detects faces and you can set who they are. Analyze the photos you can search images almost every part of them from cloud to sun sets. We need this kind of features OneDrive's photo section.
As others have said, this seems like the prime time to have a dedicated photos app, now that Google are making moves to charge people. I for one would like to move away from Google.
The photo aspect of the Android app has come on leaps and bounds in the last year or so. If it were separated out into a dedicated app I'm pretty sure it would provide some solid competition for Google Photos.
I've evaluated alternatives like Flickr, but they are pricey and don't even come close to Google's offering. For all it's flaws, OneDrive comes the closest.
Its really shocking thats it's not allready an option.
The experience on Android launcher should offer exactly the same experience as working on a Windows PC. And "Pictures" are an integrated part of that experience just as office, outlook, to-do, stick it note ect....

I'm actually shocked this hasn't happened yet. It was a no brainer once Windows Phone was killed. I ended up turning on the backup in Google Photos just tot take advantage of face search and other advanced options because there is no Onedrive/Microsoft photos app on Android. As another user said, ow is the time since Google is going to charge everyone to use their backup service.

Yes, this is one of the most important functionalities for me at the moment. Photos for Windows have decent functionality, but there is no dedicated app for Android for more advanced photo management.
Now is the time, as people will now have to pay for Google photos, making OneDrive a better value.

Yes i Too Agree i think they need more concentration on Photos app
Agree. Microsoft is very keen for us to use overtone and drop all our pictogram over there but does nothing to enable us to actually browse them
I am very confused

Yes please! The current photos tab in the app is really bad: it's very slow, lags and mixes your photos with every image file in your OneDrive. I have a lot of images which are not personal photos and they keep bloating up my photos section. I would love a real photos app with proper seperation, nice UI and features like people recognition.

Some things that I really don't know why Microsoft doesn't improve.
As I post...

100% agree!! OneDrive is great ! But the Photos Section is just a joke and unusable compared to Google Photos or Photos on Windows Phone back then...
