How can we improve the OneDrive mobile app on iOS?

Allow automatic upload of photos and video from mobile clients to OneDrive for Business

Would like to see complete feature parity between OneDrive and OneDrive for Business - well except that the latter would have everything that OneDrive personal had plus some.

Automatic upload of photos and video is one of the OneDrive Personal features that should be added to OneDrive for Business. I realize the technologies are very different on the backend, but it needs to be done.

        When will it become an automatic background process?
        Kind of frustrating having to launch the app, go to photos, to force it to start syncing.

        I have the upload working. But why can't it just do like the personal version does with the photos tab? I use office 365 e3 for my personal account, but still have to have OneDrive personal because of the photos tab. PLEASE BRING PHOTOS TAB!! I can't use my own domain with office personal.

        Month and a half later and still not available on Android, if only you tested the whole of Windows 10 as well as you are testing OneDrive for Android.
        Any real ETA on this update?

        "As announced at Ignite on 9/24/18, Camera Upload is now available for iOS and in beta on Android for OneDrive for Business accounts."
        … I don't where I was at Ignite when this announcement was made, you would hear me scream! Made a lot of pictures of slides during Ignite and every evening I was moving them from personal to Onedrive for Business.
        One question though: When will it be available for Android? And can I participate in the Beta? I really need it, like yesterdag!!

        October 2nd and I just installed the OneDrive app from Google Play (v.5.17.1). Sign into my OneDrive for Business account, go to Settings -> Camera Upload and get the notification "To automatically upload your camera roll, you'll need a personal OneDrive account. ..."

        As was asked earlier, how to get the beta OneDrive app for Android?

        So how do we get into the beta android for this? Just amazing that those who pay for this service can't have something that free accounts have had for a while.

        Boom! It's failed.

        I've followed the instructions:

        - Clicked on 'Me" in bottom right to display the the accounts
        - Clicked on the business account, I don't have a personal onedrive accont.

        There is no "Camera upload status pop-up", just a dsplay of all my photos.

        I can select an individual photo to upload, no automatic uploading. Then when I view OneDrive online there is no photos folder. So where have they been uploaded to?

        These are the instructions I followed:
