Microsoft is rolling out new updates for its OneDrive file and image storage service. The company has added a new Pokémon Detector, which will detect all your Pokémon Go screenshots and allow you to search for each Pokémon by its name.
In the official blog post, Douglas Pearce, group program manager for the OneDrive team stated,
“And finally, we know that the Pokémon* craze has captured everyone’s attention. A lot of players take screenshots of their captured Pokémon to show off to their friends—both digitally and in person. We had to make it easier for you to find all your Pokémon screenshots, so we went to work and partnered with Microsoft Research to bring a Pokémon detector to OneDrive.
When you have the OneDrive app on your phone and camera upload is turned on, the screenshots you take from the game are automatically saved to OneDrive and 150 Pokémon are identified for your searching and viewing pleasure. You can also search for your favorite Pokémon by name.”
Along with Pokémon Detector, Microsoft is also adding these features into OneDrive:
“OneDrive detects whenever you take a few photos in a short period of time, in a particular location. The highest quality photos are then selected and put into an album. You are even notified when they’re ready to view and share on OneDrive.com, in our mobile apps or via the Windows 10 Photos app. In addition, to celebrate all of the fun stuff you do over the weekend, on Monday morning albums from your weekend photos are automatically created.”
On this Day
“On OneDrive.com, you’ll also see the new “On this day” view in your All photos page. We love discovering photos we’ve taken in the past, and this view updates every day with images you have taken over the years on that same day. It’s a great way to relive birthdays or anniversaries or to remember old family vacations.”
“You can now search directly from the All photos view too. This includes finding photos that have been tagged (such as “cat” or “sunset”) or photos from a specific location (try your last vacation). You can even search using emojis. These searches also work in the OneDrive mobile apps.”
“Now have a dedicated view for your folders that have a lot of photos in them. The new photos view includes a hero image, larger thumbnails and a revised menu to help you quickly create an album or share photos.”
OneDrive has been sorting pictures into tags by detecting if photos are of food, buildings, animals, drink, and much more. Now, Pokémon seems to be the latest addition to these tags. To try this feature, update OneDrive’s mobile as well as Windows 10 apps now.
