Ancestry Updated its Family History App

Ancestry has added exciting updates to its Family History Mobile app. Those updates features improved accessibility, mobile search, and discover tab. This announcement is the beginning of a series of mobile advances to give you the best possible family history mobile experience.

Here are some of the new features:

Discover Tab: The new feed on the Discover tab is your first stop each day to see the latest discoveries from Ancestry. You’ll quickly find recommended record hints, ancestor stories, photo hints, and more to jump right into your next discovery.

Streamlined Look and Feel: Featuring better accessibility through larger text and higher contrast, it’s easier to use on a wider variety of mobile screens.

Search Tab: With over 27 billion historical records Ancestry has twice as many as any other online genealogy company in the world. Ancestry recently added the ability to search our vast indexed record collections whenever your phone can access Ancestry.

Modern Mobile Features: Supporting modern mobile features you’ve come to expect, dark mode and text size are supported by most devices through the device setting.

Placeholder Avatar Illustrations: Ancestry has made a commitment to diversity and inclusion. This commitment extends to making their product experience as inclusive as it can possibly be for everyone. Ancestry has heard from members that the existing avatars are not always representative of their families. The new avatars are the company’s first step toward addressing this concern.

Ancestry is committing to listening and committed to delivering new experiences especially adapted to your unique needs away from your desktop – including a robust DNA Matches mobile experience this year. New versions have been submitted. Download the app now to follow along on these and future exciting mobile updates. Ancestry’s Family History Mobile app is available on App Store and Google Play.
