How to Stream Facebook, Flickr or Dropbox Photos to Android Digital Frame

Are you going to use your old Android tablet as a digital photo frame? Forget about using external memory cards or copying photos to your Android tablets. There are alternative solutions from Google Play Store for your Tablet. Here you can see the article explaining How to convert your old Android Tablets into a digital photo frame with our any additional cost. When you use tablets as your digital photo frame, you incorporate more features with your digital frame and you don’t need to use a local photo or SD Cards to display the photos.

Remote Sharing is another nice feature that you can utilize with Android tablets. When you are away from your family, you can still display your recent photos to your family members using Android Digital Frame. You have to create a shared folder for your family and set your tablet to display photos from this shared folder. Once you set this folder, you just need to upload your recent photos to Flickr, Dropbox (get a free Dropbox account) or Facebook anywhere from the world and these photos will display in your home Digital Photo Frame.

There are a couple of handy applications in Google Play store to help you out for this Digital Photo Frame to stream photos from Facebook, Flickr or Dropbox to Android for a picture frame.


Dayframe turns your Android device into a digital photo frame that works with your favorite photo sharing services. This app can browse and share photos between Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Google+, Dropbox, Flickr, Twitter, 500px, and more.

Dayfarme allows you to select the best time to play your photos as a screensaver, along with settings for network, battery level, and power source. This timer feature prevents your Tablet to run all night or drain your battery or consume bandwidth. Dayframe can use with Chromcast as a photo viewer/slideshow app to stream the photos on your HDTV. You can control what’s playing on Chromecast by swiping forward and backward, zoom to fit or fill, pause, shuffle, and even like photos.

  1. I am using a FLIC button to capture photos on an old cell phone. I would lik eto use an old tablet to automatically display said photos….but can’t seem to figure how to get photos into a shareable folder that daydream recognizes automatically?!? Any ideas? It’s a project for my babies room. Just want to make take photo, see photos….dead simple.

    • Yes, you can easily achieve this with a free dropbox account or any other free cloud account. Dropbox has built in feature to auto upload pictures into dropbox folder. Use the dropbox folder on your old cell phone(to auto upload photos) and use the same dropbox account and folder on Android Tablet to display the photos through day dream. You can refer the same solution we suggested here for iPhone and Mac users, same steps for Android users.
      Hope this will help you, please let us know if you need more help.
