favorites in google

by zoechow has an automatic folder of favorited images. I can't see that soloslides has access to this folder? Is there some way to get access to it in soloslides, or can you add the feature?

Hi there,
Unfortunately the API (what Google gives third-party developers like us to let us access Google Photos on your behalf) doesn't give any apps access to that.
You can see the API docs here if you're the kind of person who can/wants-to read them :D

Thanks. It at least speaks very well of the app that I can get an informed response on here.

I thought I would report that it does work, at least, to manually grab all favorited photos and put them in a normal album, which the app then can see.

I'm inclined to pay for premium. Can I ask here, or should I do it another way since it is a new topic -- can my whole family sharing group pay for one premium, or do we have to buy one for each family sharing member? Thanks in advance

You're welcome.
It's fine to ask here, it's not a busy forum.
As far as I can remember, family sharing is allowed by default for regular (non-subscription) purchases such as Soloslides premium, and I certainly did not disable it / disallow it. So it should work fine (but I have not tested it)

Hi Tim,

Looks like the search command gives access to the favorites. I used their API test tool, and at least it accepted the query. I didn't check whether the response indeed only included favorites, but I'm assuming so. Does this help? A 'favorites' feature in SoloSlides would be highly appreciated :-)
