On my cell phone there is a block called Albums, but it is blank with a “+” in the center. I click on it, but no albums appear. How do I get albums on my phone? All of my albums appear on my laptop.  Cry

Well – that’s not good.

The + button is how you can create a new album. All your existing albums should be beside and below. See my screenshot below from my Android phone (click to enlarge) If you’re on the “Library” tab, you should see Favorites, Utilities, Archive, and Trash at the top, then comes Photos on device, then comes Albums. All your albums should be there. Google has recently announced some changes to the Album layout. I haven’t seen any difference yet. I wonder if yours is in process of updating and it’s going wonky in the process. 

You have Android, right?
