OneDrive photo tags do not seem to be written to files nor are available via the API. This makes them quite unusable atm.

The automatically generated tags are not "real" and usable unless the are actually written to the files themselves. People need to be able to have all Metadata available in the offline files (backups etc.) as well.
Wanted to provide an update here: this is something we’re planning on doing, but don’t have a timeframe to share yet
