Use the Family Hub Phone App

The Family Hub app on your phone lets you control your Family Hub fridge, even when you're out. It automatically syncs with your fridge's settings, so any changes you make show up at home. You can update your shopping list, view inside your fridge, create a memo and much more. Learn all about using the Family Hub app below.

Use the Family Hub Mobile App

The Family Hub app can be downloaded for mobile devices from the Google Play store or the Apple App store. It's divided into two parts: Family Hub apps and the dashboard. (For steps to set up the app, see our Setup Guide for the Family Hub app.)

To open an app, just touch an app's icon at the top of the screen. The dashboard will display relevant information from certain apps, such as Calender events. You can also touch the cards on the dashboard to open up the corresponding app.

Note: The Family Hub apps on the phone may have limited functionality compared to the full apps on the Family Hub fridge.
