We’ve heard the feedback and are going to have the option to control what content shows up in the photos tab in the mobile app. We allow you to change this setting on OneDrive.com today.Steven Lennon commented
I don't hold out any hope of Microsoft getting this basic functionality in place. This has been going on ever since Photos became a thing in OneDrive. Again MS missed the boat completely and as usual released a half baked piece of rubbish when everyone else already had this capability. Are these people so wrapped up in the Microsoft bubble that they didn't even bother to have a look at the competition and see what everyone else is using.
