Show only photos from Photos folder
On wepage we have option so see pictures/photos from only the Photos folder but in Android version of OneDrive, we don't have this option when we go to the "Photos" from the mainmenu, it shows all pictures, what we dont want.
So please add that same function from webpage to app.
I’m going to open this one back up. We are working to add support to filter the Android photos view to include all photos or those only in the Pictures folder, for all users not only for Samsung Gallery Sync customers.
Wanted to switch form Google drive to Onedrive but this is holding me back.

This is not fixed - I have an Oppo Android and the photos tab is still showing *all the OneDrive root folder images* (instead of only the Pictures folder content).
Please fix it now 🙏
That's the most brain-dead decision making I've seen. You made the "feature" only for ONE manufacturer, why??? What did other phone owners do to Microsoft? Aren't we paying the same amount of money for OneDrive storage? What will it take to get this feature released for all phones?
I actually sent a feedback about this to OneDrive team and they proudly proclaimed that this feature was there for Samsungnd I should file ANOTHER ticket if I wanted for my phone. Well, **** ***.
Yea, it should only show pictures in the pictures folder by default. For instance lots of game developers for some idiotic reason insist that they store game data etc in your documents folder, so often you get a bunch of garbage images cluttering the display. Since we can't teach software developers that DOCUMENTS folder is for DOCUMENTS not a dumping ground for their software's user data, photos should by default ignore everything else BUT the pictures folder. thanks

No, it dosnt still work like we want it to work.
We want see only pictures from "Pictures folder" from file hierarchy.
How it working now, is that user need to add every picture from its file hierarchy to albums.. and even then onedrive android app, dosnt show by default just for albums.
Give users option to add "DEFAULT PHOTOS FOLDER", so the Photos tab, then goes directly to there and shows only the content from that folder.
Why this is so hard to understand?
no it's not "Done"....at least not in the Android app that I can see :(
... but the filter "Onedrive-Fotos" still shows *all* Fotos on onedrive, not only from picture folder ? So, there is still this issue and onedrive NOT usable for fotos!
Microsoft doesn't seem to give a **** about this problem. Very angry.

I have the Android onedrive app version 6.12 and I do not see how to filter to show only pictures.
Today I have thousands of technical and business images in the Android Photos section. I installed some software yesterday in onedrive and it is ridiculous that thoses images show up in the Android Photos screen.

I am also a developer. Give me access to code repository, I'll do it myself.
This is still not available in android onedrive app.

Not working for me.
The Option "only the Picture folder of Onedrive" is not shown.
I can only choose if i want to see the "Samsung-Gallary", the "whole onedrive Pictures, including Pictures outside the Pictures folder", or both.
So it does not matter what i choose, i also see a lot of "files" from the Documents folder for example, who have nothing to do with my Albums.
This incredibly basic feature is still not done after several years. Amazing. Please just give me access to the code repository, and I'll do it myself today.

Boom sansung isnt the only phone maker in the world!!!!!!
Think befote you post microsoft. And fix your app. It is tbe number one reason i hate using your app on mobile.
Please fix this adding the option to filter photos by folder in iOS. So easy!! Thanks.

Why is it not possible to select a directory recursively in the app? That nobody can tell me that such a thing is not possible! Except disinterest.
This isn't in the current Android app. There is currently no easy way to filter the photos to only show images from the Photos folder. Instead, the Photos section shows all images in OneDrive creating tons of clutter. Searched in settings high and low, there is no option to change this.

Either they don't want to, or they can't. What's up, Microsoft?
It only works on the web interface. None of the mobile apps have this feature. I use iOS and android and also need to see a lot of book covers and other pictures before I can find a family photo.
