No more coming home to spoiled milk. The Family Hub app on your phone lets you interact with your Family Hub fridge, even when you're out. You can update your shopping list, view items inside your fridge, create a memo, and much more - all from your phone. The app automatically syncs with your fridge's settings, so you'll always know what's going on with your groceries.

Use the Family Hub app

The Family Hub app can be downloaded on your phone using the Google Play store or the App store.

It's divided into two main parts: Food and Family. Just tap Food or Family at the bottom of the screen, and then tap your desired feature.

You also have an All menu to view every available feature. Tap All at the bottom of the screen, and then select your desired feature.

View Inside

This displays a current image of the inside of your fridge. You can edit a food list to indicate which foods are currently in the fridge. You can also keep track of different items' expiration dates. When customizing apps, you can make both the Inside Fridge image and the Food List appear in the Family Hub app.
