You can browse all local pictures and videos stored on your mobile phone, and you can upload one or multiple files to the Magic Leap Cloud Library. Once your photos and videos are stored in your Cloud Library, you can access and download them via the native Gallery app installed with Lumin OS on your Magic Leap device.
Using the Gallery feature makes sharing pictures and videos from your phone to your device simple and fast. Conversely, you can take pictures or videos on your device and share them from the Gallery app to the Mobile App using the same Magic Leap Cloud Library folder. You can also delete files from your Cloud Library.
Gallery also supports viewing and sharing 3D model files (OBJ, FBX, and GLTF) via the Mobile App external sharing feature. You can open a supported 3D modeling app (for example, Sketchfab) and download a 3D model. To upload the file to your Magic Leap Cloud Library, tap on the native Share button and select Magic Leap from the list of options.
