Lack of features in OneDrive post migration from Google Drive

It has been few weeks since I opted for OneDrive as my preferred online cloud storage choice and wanted to detail my experience to my readers. Initially I was excited to use OneDrive as my preferring online cloud platform and later had few hiccups here and there. Following are my observation while using OneDrive as my only source of online cloud platform. 
  • No Option to exclude pictures from specific folders: I have around 20GB of my old office files and when I move my office files into OneDrive, the files are copied with ease and with no questions asked. However, I later noticed that my office files had few pictures or images inside the folders and these pictures are moved into overall photos album. When I scroll through my old personal photos, I get distracted and feel unpleasant by looking at those office file images. There is choice available in OneDrive to mark the specific folder to exclude the images to be synchronized to the photos album. 
  • Lack of Chromecast support in iOS OneDrive: As said in my earlier articles, I wanted my preferred online cloud platform to support Chromecast, so that it was easier cast my old images or files into my TV for work or while get-together with family. Before, opting into OneDrive as my preferred online cloud platform, I was checking about Chromecast support and found that Microsoft had re-introduced those features into its application. I double checked with my wife's android phone to ensure that availability of Chromecast option and did not feel the need to do the same in my iPhone. Only after moving all my old files and photos to OneDrive, I noticed that the Chromecast feature is not available on iOS devices and Microsoft is yet to announce the support for the same. 
Hope Microsoft considers about suggestions and addresses the concerns at the earliest, so unaccustomed users like me, who migrated to OneDrive as primary online cloud storage option feel comfortable and renew the subscriptions for the upcoming years.
