  1. Update OneDrive to a newer version that works with Chromebooks

    There is a problem with OneDrive on my Chromebook. (Chromebooks now run Android apps). My model is Google Pixelbook, and I downloaded OneDrive from Play Store. Now, when I tried to sign in to my Microsoft Account on the Android version of OneDrive on Google Pixelbook, I get a "sign-in failure" error message. More information about OneDrive in the Play Store shows "Last updated: 24th June 2016" and should be updated to work on all Chromebooks later than that exact date.

  2. Onedrive for Android is not useable

    Onedrive for Android is just not good enough: it works quite differently from how it works on Windows and usually it does not work at all.

    Two features of Onedrive on Windows that are critical are: it is integrated with Windows filing so can find folders and files as if they were local, and it saves local duplicate copies on PC. Onedrive for Android does neither which makes it almost useless (dependent on an internet connection).

    What makes it completely useless is that I usually get a message that "This folder can't be displayed. Make sure you're connected to a…

    I haven't been able to download a folder. I didn't find where it is on my device - quickpik at least didnt find -when I make it available offline, so I had to select all files in a folder to really download them.

  5. More options for music playback on the OneDrive mobile app

    Playing music on the app is very poor. There is no real music player and it does not display file tags or cover art. Please improve music playback on the OneDrive app!

  8. Fix freezing of Android app

    The android app is unusable. I go into my camera roll folder and it just constantly freezes. I cannot scroll, it takes forever to refresh the latest photos and eventually I give up and use the website instead. Please fix it.

  9. Videos stop when the phone auto rotates and video playing won't stop your phone from going to sleep.

    Since the recent update on my android device, my videos will play but the phone goes to sleep while the video plays. This has never happened before. Also the phone stops playing video when the phone auto rotates. These were never an issue before but now it's kinda inconvenient. Using LG stylo 2

  10. Photo album layout

    Please put photo albums in order by date taken and display photos in albums by latest first. (like Google photos does). I have to scroll through hundreds of photos at the moment in my general folder to get to the latest photo.

  11. Photos - Allow synchronized delete (i.e. both on OneDrive and device)

    I'd like to have the option to delete photo from device and from cloud - just as it works on Windows 10 (from everywhere on the device).
    If that is not possible - and it most probably is not - have the opportunity to delete from device when deleting in OneDrive.
    Or at least have the opportunity to identify differences and do it as bulk operation manually.
    Thank you!

  13. Change sync folder photos

    I'd like to be able to select which OneDrive folder my photos sync to. Currently there is a default folder called Camera Roll that has thousands of photos. I would like to be able to start fresh in a new folder so I don't have to scroll through so many photos when I view the folder contents. Since I can't change which folders my phone syncs to, I have to move photos from the original folder to a new folder and that's very time consuming.

    Onedrive app: possibility to jump to exact day few years ago, instead of scrolling down to find those photos. My finger is almost killed now!

  19. Option to exclude certain folders from Photos tab in Android app

    I have over one hundred thousand work-related images in my OneDrive that I do not want showing up in the "Photos" tab with my personal photos for aesthetic and app performance reasons. There is currently a great option on OneDrive.com to limit the images that appear in the "Photos" tab to only those in the "Pictures" folder. However, this feature has not been extended to the iOS or Android apps. Please enable this option in the Android app.
