Late last week, we added API support for fetching albums and photos via apps running in the sandbox. Now your applications can request and display the viewer's public albums, enabling you to create an even richer, personalized experience for users.

To help you get started, we have published a tutorial which describes the new API calls available and how to use them. An API reference is also available on the OpenSocial wiki.

Since the Albums API is only available on the sandbox for now, please hold off on submitting your apps to the directory if they depend on this API. We will publish a new post when the Albums API is generally available.

Learn more about how Google is using OpenSocial and other technologies to make the web social at Google I/O, Google's annual developer conference, coming up in May. Early registration is now open.
