The FamilyAlbum widget is available for iPhones/iPads running iOS 14 or above. Your FamilyAlbum app will also need to be updated to version 16.1.0 or later.
How to add the FamilyAlbum widget
Press and hold anywhere on your iPhone's Home Screen. Tap the + icon that appears in either the top-left or top-right corner, tap "FamilyAlbum", then tap “Add Widget”.
Swipe all the way to the right on your Home Screen to show Today View. Press and hold an empty area in Today View, then tap the + button when it appears in the top-left corner. Tap "FamilyAlbum", then tap “Add Widget”.
It may take a few minutes before the first photo is displayed. During that time, the widget will display a gray FamilyAlbum icon.
Please note that the widget will only display photos shared with the whole family. If a few minutes have passed and no photos are displayed, it's possible that your album doesn't have any photos that are visible to everyone in the album. This issue can be resolved by opening the Add tab in the app, selecting photos/videos, and tapping "Share with Family". It may take some time for these new uploads to be displayed in the widget.
If photos and videos are still not being displayed in the widget, please contact us by tapping “Inquiries” in the Settings tab or emailing us at email@example.com.
