Sharing with family


You can invite family members to share to your Loop. This will allow them to send photos/videos and see what the rest of the family is sharing. Even people without their own Loop can join in with the free mobile app.

Note: Each user will need to have their own Loop account in order to receive channel invites.

If you’re sharing a Loop within the same household - only the account on which the Loop was set up will be able to control the Loop’s settings (screen brightness etc). You can either share your account credentials to give full control, or just share channels to their account so they can view and add to them.

To get started, tap the invite button on the top left of the Channels screen.
