FamilyAlbum is an app that helps parents share photos/videos of their
children while keeping it all in the family. FamilyAlbum’s popularity
stems from the ability to invite Grandma, Grandpa, and other family
members to join in the story, events, and daily joys of childhood,
unlimited storage and fun communication between family members. Its
monthly subscription service, FamilyAlbum Premium, was made available
for $4.99 per month starting April 2019. With a single subscription, all
family members get access to 3 useful features, such as the ability to
upload videos up to 10 minutes long (in contrast to 3 minutes for free
users) and the ability to upload from their computers.
FamilyAlbum has gained another million users around 5 months after
reaching 4 million users. The number of users in Japan is steadily
rising in addition to the increasing number of users in English-speaking
countries, mainly from North America, but also in the UK and Australia.
As of May 2019, over 98 million photos/videos have been uploaded to
