    Does OneDrive have any kind of facial recognition? Picassa the desktop app I think does.
    Any better ways to search through images with OneDrive? Any other MS apps I can run my photos through to help sort them?

    Thoughts? Suggestions?

    5 things OneDrive still needs to rival Google Photos and iCloud

    Looks like MS has the technology, but has not implemented in OneDrive

    . Face recognition

    Sure, Google’s ability to categorize photos by face is kind of creepy. But it’s also a game-changer that makes all other photo libraries seem obsolete. With no manual tagging required, Google Photos lets you look up photos of your kids or your friends, and scroll back through a lifetime of pictures—sometimes stretching all the way back to birth. The facial recognition happens automatically, and if you decide to add a name, Google keeps those labels private.

    Google Photos lets you browse photos by face.

    Microsoft has some impressive facial recognition technology under its belt. The company’s Face API, can detect facial features and identify people from previous images, while the Emotion API can understand people’s expressions. And yet, Microsoft hasn’t bothered to bring those features to OneDrive.

    I found this and tried it out. Pretty cool
    But it still doesn't allow you to search by metadata - like where the photo was taken, even the the geolocation is stored and even shows you on the map.
    Be nice to type in a city name, and photos show up from there, then filter by date.
    Also, it does not allow you to tag people via facial recognition. I was hoping I could tag my face once, and it would find the rest or ask me who the person is if not sure.

    Maybe one day.

    I have tons of photos to sort through and share...

    Thoughts, opinions?
