Make the Facial Recognition image data HIPAA compliant to use with sensitive client data.6 votes
The API currently returns English strings. It would be great to pass a language/region variable to the API so that it would translate the returning strings.3 votes
Provide prebuilt Face API (and Speech as well if possible) flow capabilities for Microsoft Flow that they can be used in PowerApps on modern devices with microphone and camera capabilities (phone, tablet, desktop computers). They could be used to interact and authenticate with the application.6 votes
Prebuilt flow capabilities for the Face API is now completed:

Currently /verify only takes faceIds, it could also take persistedFaceIds from personobjects which would improve ease of use11 votes
If we want to get the age or gender along with the emotion of a person, we need to call different APIs. I think it is a common scenario, so having all this information with a single Emotion API could be a great improvement.28 votes
To manage groups and faces in groups it would be really nice if it would be possible to retrieve the image for a faceId. Currently if you want to edit a group you have to know on the client which id is which face.
this is best tracked in the application logic as the service may not use the image at full resolution
It's quite bad right now7 votes
we’re always working to improve the detection for different angles, occlusions, etc.
if you have any consistent examples where detection is failing, please share them via the “contact us” link at the bottom of the website https://www.microsoft.com/cognitive-services
Please add support for asynchronous calls for PersonGroup methods3 votes
Need a way to go beyond 1,000 person objects with the face api when doing identification tasks.39 votes
While personGroups are still limited to 1,000 people, you are now able to add up to 1,000 personGroups to the standard tier, for a total of 1 million person objects.
personGroups are now limited to 10,000 people.
For the usecase of "find the most similar face from a group or face list, even if it's not the same person", it would be nice to be able to provide custom thresholds for Find Similar and Identify.
There seems to be a fairly high internal threshold by default, the idea is to be able to override that.
Also please include default thresholds in the docs (if any).14 votes
Happy to announce this was released to the service as part of our July 2016 update and we recently updated the C#, Python, iOS, and Android packages on GitHub to support these changes as well.
Finding Similar Face API: Added optional mode field enabling selection of two working modes, default matchPerson works the same as before, and new mode matchFace removes the same person filtering. If mode field is not specified, the behavior is the same as the past release.
Face Identification API: Optional user-specified confidenceThreshold is enabled for user to define the confidence threshold of whether one face belong to a person object.
Please take a look and provide feedback or requests for additional features.
In some case, we would prefer to use the face API offline especially in the financial and Pension services industry. We would like to run face API on out customer profile images. We might not be allowed to upload these to an external server.61 votes
There's a sample for WPF, but not for UWP. We should create both3 votes
