How can we improve the OneDrive web experiences?

Make Search powerful and a 1st class citizen on OneDrive

OneDrive's search does not include tags and leaves out meta data. File names with binding characters like_this_file.docx would not be indexed in a way I could search for it. All in all there is a missed opportunity to allow for advanced search by type, date and analyze the content of digital assets like pictures, music, videos for automated (searchable!) tagging. You have such a powerful Search Service with Azure Search at your disposal, why not use it to make search one of the most powerful capabilities of OneDrive? This could be a true game changer since there is no better way of staying productive than a powerful search engine.
Please, please, please exploit that potential!

We are investing in better search experiences across the system, so moving this to “thinking about it” status.
