In case you have OneDrive for work or school account, you might not see the ‘Memories’ section at the top. And instead, will be shown shared libraries. It's worth mentioning that if you want to access the file browser, you can still do so using the Files tab at the bottom of the screen.

Besides this, you can now play 8k videos along with Samsung motion photos, inside the app itself. This also means that you don't have to wait for the files to download locally in order to play them.

In case you want to share some motion photos with others, the app’s web version can let you do it and play it as well, making it convenient for you, or any other person without a Samsung handset to view images.

However, this will only work with a personal account and not with your school or office account. You can get this from OneDrive Android version 6.23, which is now already available to download from Google Play Store.
