With the new iPhone 6s and iOS 9, are there plans to automatically upload the mov file that is created as part of the "live photo". It would be nice to make it an option, similar to how uploading videos is an option. Thanks.
The team is actively working on supporting this. We’re planning to make this available this summer.

Can you release a timetable about the developing of this function? We have been wait too long for this function! I know it's not easy because this feature need all the platform including Windows system and its Photo App to support with. But I still think, your gays should speed this up. Like many other people, we have Office 365 and Onedrive subscription, we do not intending to transfer to iCloud or Google Drive, but don't make us do it please. Not much patience we have.

Please implement this feature... We've been waiting a long time for this.
Come On MICROSOFT! We are still waiting!
Can you tell us why it took Microsoft 3.5 years to accommodate this shortcoming since your product works on IOS devices to begin with. Leaving this unsupported creates a data corruption issue?

Is Onedrive really a product of Microsoft. I have been using live photos on my iphone since 2015. I dont think this long should be the time to create this featre to store the live photos. Google has implemented this feature. This is the only thing thats stopping me from buying from Onedrive as the most widely used features are not beeing developed even after 4 years.
Any updates / ETA please? I’m holding all my Live Photo’s dating back some time on my phone so keen to see this released. Thanks
When are you gonna release?

Ideally it should sync the .heic files containing both the still and live photo, and Windows photos app would have to make sure it supports displaying those as living images with the same effect when swiping through images. Currently OneDrive only includes the still photo in the .heic.

Please, is there any prediction about it?

This is one of the leading reasons I don't use OneDrive for my photos :l
Is there any plans for the OneDrive to retain all the Media Types taken from iPhone? That when it gets backed up to the OneDrive, and downloaded it back to iPhone, it will still have the said features.
I'm using an iPhone 7 Plus and a Lenovo Yoga C930 laptop to access and browse my photos and videos in-between. And at the settings and advanced, I kept HEIC format rather than JPG.
I noticed the iPhone Media Types that doesn't retain their features after it's been backed up to OneDrive and downloaded it back to iPhone:
- When backed up on OneDrive, filename extension says 'heic' not 'jpg'.
- When downloaded back to iPhone from OneDrive, 'Live' feature is removed.
- When backed up on OneDrive, filename extension says 'mov'.
- When played on OneDrive app and web, it plays the whole video in regular speed.
- When downloaded back to iPhone from OneDrive and played, it retained the slo-mo feature.
- When backed up on OneDrive, filename extension says 'jpg' not 'heic'.
- On OneDrive, there's no indication that it's a burst photo.
- When downloaded back to iPhone from OneDrive, it's just one image.
I haven't tried the new 'Portrait' feature where you can edit the 'bokeh effect' afterwards since my iPhone 7 Plus doesn't have that feature. It would be nice if it's also going to have that feature or retained that feature after it's being backed up and retrieve just in case I plan on upgrading my phone in the next few months.
Thank you for checking on this. Looking forward for the new updates.
Are you planning to release this in 5 years time? What is the ETA?
This feature is long overdue.
Really disappointed that OneDrive does not support Live pics.
I am a paid customer of Office 365 and would really like to see this feature.
I ned commented ,and naima sumi sound

Yes pls add that we can watch our live photos in the onedrive to
The title says it all. I pay for this service with my Office 365 subscription, and it's been 4+ years since Microsoft promised to look into this. The live photos are very important to me and very personal. I lost my 3 year old daughter last year in an accident, and the live photos are all I have of her, and not being able to back them up on my paid Office 365 account is unacceptable. Microsoft, I've been loyal for years, but this lack of support has now become personal. Silence is not the answer.
Adding my own vote of support. I now upload my photos to google photos and amazon prime photos because they both support live photos. Shame on Microsoft. I pay for the Office 365 and made a decision years ago to stick with it as my paid backup solution. This sloppy lagging feature function is disappointing. Here we roll into 2019, 4+ years after this was posted. I am going to start a migration off my dependence on Office 365 for this reason alone. So you know how personal this is, I lost my daughter in an accident this last December, and these live photos are all I have left of her memory, so yeah, this is important to me.
2294 votes, more than 2 year that Live Photos were introduced in iOS and you are still thinking about it?
What is the problem to include this feature? Is there any technical limitation?
Google Photos already done it, so why OneDrive don't?
You've been thinking about this for 2 years now.. I don't think Live Photos is going to disappear, so if you could go ahead and start working on this that would be great.
