Microsoft OneDrive for Android gets photo editing, Chromecast support

23 June 2021 0

Microsoft's OneDrive application for Android users has just become a lot more useful, especially for those who use it for storing photos. It is time for a new update that brings native photo editing support to OneDrive on Android and the web. The Android app is further receiving Chromecast support so that users can see their photos on a bigger screen.

OneDrive's native photo editor is a pretty basic one but it should be enough for getting most things done. It offers image cropping with both manual and social media crop preset functions. It will let users rotate images by 90-degrees or flip them completely opposite by 180-degrees. There is also support for incremental degree rotation so that tilted photos can be straightened.


Other commonly used photo editing features like adjusting brightness, contrast, exposure, highlights, shadows, and color saturation are also available. The app lets users compare the original and edited versions with ease. When the editing is done, a user can choose whether to save it as a separate copy or overwrite the original photo. The good thing is that even if you choose to overwrite the photo, you can revert to the original one anytime you want.

The second addition to OneDrive for Android is Chromecast integration. This will allow users to cast their photos from their smartphones to a bigger screen like a smart TV.
