What does it do?

The FamilyAlbum widget is a rotating slideshow of memories from your album on your Home Screen. You can even choose between a calendar version and photo-only version!

How does it choose what photos to display?

The widget prioritizes photos taken on the same date from past years. Unlike other widgets, only memories shared with the whole family will be displayed. If you’ve joined multiple albums, the widget will default to the last album viewed.

How do I get it?

First, update your FamilyAlbum app to the latest version by tapping the button below or by searching for FamilyAlbum in the Google Play Store.

After you’ve updated FamilyAlbum, use one of the setup methods below to add the FamilyAlbum widget.

Method 1: Through the FamilyAlbum App

If you’re accessing this article through the same device that you use for FamilyAlbum, just tap the type of widget you’d like to install below.

If you are using an older OS version, the buttons below may not work properly. If you are experiencing this issue, please try Setup Method 2 below.

Method 2: From the Home Screen

Tap and hold on an empty space on the Home Screen of your device, then tap “Widgets”.

Tap and hold “FamilyAlbum Widget”, then drag it to an empty spot on the Home Screen.

When you tap and hold the widget, a white circle will appear on each side. Drag these circles to adjust the widget’s display size.
