What you need to know
- OneDrive now integrates with the Galaxy Note 10's photo gallery.
- The feature is part of a growing partnership between Microsoft and Samsung.
- The feature natively integrates the photo gallery with OneDrive, rather than relying on the OneDrive app.
Samsung and Microsoft announced several aspects of a partnership in August, including OneDrive natively integrating with the Galaxy Note 10 photo gallery. Microsoft announced that the feature begins to roll out today in Europe, with devices in the U.S. set to receive it soon.
The integration replaces Samsung Cloud in the photos gallery and allows people to sync photos and videos to OneDrive directly from the gallery app. These images and videos can then be viewed in the OneDrive app on iOS, Android, or Windows, as well as on the web. A new photo experience arrives in January for OneDrive online that loads images quickly and has a timeline bar.
This integration is another part of Samsung and Microsoft's growing relationship. In addition to Microsoft's strong app effort on Android, the Galaxy Note 10 has several features that pair it well with Windows 10. People can use a Windows 10 device as a monitor for Samsung DeX, and connect their Galaxy Note10 to Windows 10 with the Link to Windows.
