  1. Moments sorts pictures on Date Modified not Date Taken. Date Modified changes when facial recognition and tags are applied to the pictures causing the collection to resort and be presented incorrectly.

    Thank you for your request, but unfortunately not at this time. I will make sure to add request to add the Date Taken sorting option in the future, however, I do not have an ETA when it will be added.

    Best regards,
