There are two ways to add media from an Android phone or tablet into Mylio Photos:

  • Installing the Mylio Photos app on your phone or tablet. The Mylio Photos Android app lets you easily view, edit, and organize the photos from your media library in the Mylio Photos app. If you’re a Mylio Photos+ subscriber, pictures from your media library will be automatically backed up to any device you’ve designated as a Vault and accessible via the Mylio Photos application on all of your devices. As you capture new images and videos, they will be automatically imported into your Mylio Photos Library.

Managing Android Media Library Access and Permissions

The first time you launch Mylio Photos on your Android phone or tablet, you’ll be asked to grant permission for Mylio Photos to access the media library. If you choose not to grant permission during setup or later wish to disconnect Mylio Photos from your media library, you can update access using the steps below.

Connecting Mylio Photos to your Media Library

  1. Tap the plus icon in the top app bar to open the Add Media dialog.
  2. Choose Add Media Library and grant Mylio Photos access to your media library.

  1. Once added, you can select specific folders in your Media Library to import by choosing Manage Media Library.
  2. Toggle the switch next to Enable importing of media from directories to the OFF position to disable syncing your Media Library with Mylio Photos.
  3. To select specific folders to sync, long-tap the folder to mark it.
  4. When you’re done, quit Mylio Photos, then restart the app to apply changes.
