Not able to find the Shared Folder

Postby FrankCHCheung » Thu May 07, 2020 10:33 am

Hi all,

Is it possible to load those albums being shared by others in Google Photos?

I have created and been sharing some of photos with my parents using Google Photos, I plan to use an old iPad as a digital photo frame to show those photos, but Soloslide cannot find the shared albums. May I know if I have to enable some settings in Soloslides or Google Photos in order to make it happen?

Thank you for your support.

Best,
Frank

Hi Frank,
I'm adding the functionality you need into SoloSlides now (so you can see shared albums you have joined but not created). There should be an update available early this coming week (1.5.2).
Thanks for your patience.

... update: 1.5.2 was released today (sunday may 10), you should see it available within 24 hours as an update.
In order for shared albums to show up in SoloSlides, you must have "joined" them. You can do this on the Google Photos website, https://photos.google.com/sharing

Does it work for you?
