Powered by innovation and built on trust, Microsoft OneDrive has been extending its commitment of secure, world-class file storage to a refreshed photos experience to securely save, share, and relive a lifetime of memories.  


We’ve now taken the next step in that commitment with the public preview of OneDrive photo story, a new, interactive feature that securely connects your favorite moments to the people who matter most. 


Photo story brings all your memories into a private, invitation-only feed that you can share with family and friends, and it supports comments, reactions, and notifications to spur authentic interactions through photos that people actually care about. The feature is available now in beta in Australia on the OneDrive mobile app for Android and iOS, and from your favorite web browser. We plan to roll out the new feature in the U.S. and other regions later this year, as we continue to listen to customer feedback, and develop and improve feature capabilities. 


With OneDrive photo story, you can deepen your personal connections and tight-knit communities without compromising your privacy or personal data. 


To experience OneDrive photo story feature (Australia only), download the free OneDrive mobile app and sign in or sign up for a personal OneDrive account. If you’re signed into the OneDrive mobile app, tap the Shared tab to create your first photo story; if you’re in a browser, select the Shared tab from the left navigation bar.  You can learn more about Photo Story in our dedicated support article. 


Availability and getting started 
The OneDrive feature is now available in preview in Australia and later this year will roll out to U.S. and other regions. You can experience the feature if you are in Australia and have one of the following plans: OneDrive Basic 5GB (free), OneDrive Standalone 100GB, Microsoft 365 Personal, and Microsoft 365 Family. You can learn more about those plans on our plans page. It is not yet available for OneDrive work or school accounts.
