Allow PowerApps to access the camera roll

Allow PowerApps to import images into the app from the smartphone or tablet camera roll.

Status: Completed

Hey everyone, both the Add picture and Attachments controls allow you to either take a picture or add one from your gallery on both Android and iOS devices (and select a file from a web browser).  This was the functionality that was originally requested in this post, so I am marking the feature as completed.

 

I understand people would like to add multiple images at once.  Currently this is not supported and is not on our immediate roadmap.   We will consider this functionality but I think it is best to track this as a separate ideas post to not confuse it with the original functionality.

Will really want to have it to have a fully functional power app

The Add picture contro has been improved so that when it is run on a mobile device it will prompt you to either take a photo or choose from photos you have taken.  This hooks into the native experience on iOS and Android.

 

We are currently working on the Attachment control to allow you to add multiple files to your app.  This will have a similar experience to Add picture, but you will be able to add multiple pictures to the same control.

Is there any update on when we will be able to add multiple photos from the mobile gallery, please?

PowerApps Staff

Attachment upload is expected to be available publicly in early March.

Thanks for your response, FilipK. Will this also enable upload of multiple photos from a mobile gallery at once, to a library? (i.e. not as attachments to a list).

PowerApps Staff

Soon after the initial release, we'll enable the Attachment control to work with all data sources as well as Flow actions.  This should allow you to send the files anywhere.  Are you talking about a SharePoint library?

Hi FilipK - yes, I'm referring to a sharepoint library.

Allow PowerApps to import images into the app from the smartphone or tablet camera roll. Is this function available now? I can't find it.
