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.
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.
Not working for me either - iphone v10.33.6 - still only says "personal account"

Hi, I have checked it out as well, I have Onedrive 10.31.1 running, I can't do camera upload with a Office 365 E3 license.
It isn’t working for me? Tried to check for update on App Store none there and restarted ipad
Hello, that are great news! I'm really looking forward to this future to business account users. Which version number of the app in iOS we need to get the function?
Not done! No changes, no way to upload to business account. Still require personal account. Have done restart, have checked update (not available). Great job!
This seems to be working just fine as of this morning.
The photos pane is available from the top left menu.
When you enable Camera Upload, you now have the option to choose which account you want to upload to.
I am happy!

Finally, a great add on!

Great. This is the second time, that a user-idea became a feature - in a very short time. Thank You!
Boom! It isn't! Although you have some sort of upload photos in menu, it didn't work. Boom!
I just updated the app and it’s still not working. Still asking that I use a personal account...

@Ryan Hoge Just a quick question.. For sure VERY excited to see this coming.. Still waiting on my Samsung to update. Will the Photos section be available too like on OneDrive personal? I choose to use OneDrive for business for my personal because I want my own domain and I LOVE Office 365 for business, plus its my "lab" environment. I would be VERY excited to see it come!!
Also wish a "work" account could be used across all Microsoft platforms such as Xbox for cases like mine :(
This is not working on September Beta 3 5.18
Please advice us on how to get this working if its something we are doing wrong. Many others are having the same issue. Its desperately needed. We pay for this
[BOOM! NOT WORKING] Updated to 10.33.6, not working.
The camera upload section of the mobile app still says you need a personal Onedrive account. There also is no update available for the app in the app store.
Changed to an Android phone to overcome this problem which actually runs all the Microsoft apps better than the Windows phone ever did. Ironic how the comment of "Boom! It's Done" seems to make it sound like the problem was one that had been fixed quickly yet the original posting is from 2014!!!! Good luck Windows phones!!!
Is the updated App just "OneDrive" or is it a separate App "OneDrive for Business" App. I'm only seeing OneDrive on "Play Store" which is version 5.17.1 (Sept 14,2018). Does not allow "Camera Upload" to be turned on.
Happy to see this feature in the Roadmap as "Rolling Out" https://products.office.com/en-US/business/office-365-roadmap?filters=onedrive
"Camera Upload for ODB

Thx to the team!
It is outrageous that a PAID SERVICE is stripped of a feature that even a FREE ACCOUNT is able to use. It should be the !paying! CUSTOMER who chooses whether to put his pictures on to his "personal" account or his "work account", and NOT microsoft.

Absolutely must have for a cloud application and shocking it's removed from the functionality when this is supposed to be an "upgrade" form a personal OneDrive plan.
Both OneDrive Personal and OneDrive business use the same engine so this is just a daft choice amongst the Microsoft ranks.
I really think this is an absolutely required feature for small sized companies.
I really often take pictures of whiteboard sessions with my phone or documenting pictures and I see it as a security threat having to sync them to a personal account rather to my business account.
Actually, I'm paying for that but have more functionality at the for-free version. This business model seems broken to me :-/
