Surprised there is no red eye removal (that I can find) in the new Lightroom CC. Am I just missing something?

Hallo, wo kann ich mit LR CC 2.2 die "Rote Augen" Bearbeitung finden? Auf meiner alten Version auf Mac kein Problem..

Two years and counting - still no red eye removal in Lightroom CC cloud?
Yet, we just got an esoteric texture smoothing feature in the latest May 2019 update?

Very disappointed that Adobe does not have an ongoing "slog through until you do it" plan to rapidly get Lightroom CC cloud feature parity with existing Lightroom Classic and Lightroom CC.

I understand re-writing a product from scratch doesn't always get feature parity on first release, but two-years on and straightforward, but extremely useful feature like red eye removal is still missing?

Probably falling on deaf ears, but Adobe should be working hard and fast to reward those of us willing to commit to a cloud-first/cloud-only subscription model for Adobe professional tools.

Sure, there are folks that will gripe forever about the subscription versus one-time licensing, or desktop versus cloud, but how about at least removing the technical excuses that are easy for users throw up as rationale to cling to the old way?

I have been a long time Lightroom user since Lightroom Classic version 3.  I am also a senior software engineer.  I understand the technical challenges associated with adding red eye removal to the CC product.  You obviously already have the algorithm, because that worked beautifully in LR Classic.  I have to believe that the issue is deciding how you are going to design the User Interface for that given you have to support it on the desktop, tablets, phones, etc.  The desktop workflow for red eye removal could be similar for CC desktop as it is for LR Classic, but that clearly will not work for mobile devices since you have to rely on "touch" as opposed to "mouse click" to perform the needed steps to complete the task.

My statement and request here is why not just give us the feature on desktop and just not provide it on mobile?  At least we can edit our photos with this essential feature somewhere. Right now, I find myself having to first open the photo in a non-Adobe application and fix the red eye and then bring the photo into Lightroom and continue my editing.  This is a terrible workflow.  

Again, please just give us the red eye removal on the desktop flavor of CC and we can await a time where your UI/UX people can figure out how to accomplish this task on mobile!
