For days I have been able to share a specific google photos album.  When I try to share the album I get an error message that says “can’t share album, try again in a few minutes.”  Does the size of an album matter when trying to share it?  I ask because the album I am having an isssue sharing has a 40 min video in it.  However, when I share a smaller album, it works.

Hi Brian,
 
how many photos or videos does the album contain? Are you trying to share it with a specific person?

The album that will not let me share only has the one video.  But the video is a big one as it is 40 minutes.  As soon as I click share I get that error message, so I am unable to share with anyone.

Have you tried sharing the album from both the Google Photos app on iOS and the https://photos.google.com website?

Something is not syncing correctly.  While other photos are syncing on the cloud and visible between my iPhone and iPad, this specific video is not syncing.  I made it on my iPad and it is not showing on my phone.  I also went to the website you suggested on my phone, iPad, and laptop and other recent photos and smaller videos are there, but not this longer video.

Do you confirm that specific video is not here?
If so it indeed looks like the video is not synchronizing, which would explain the issue. In this case try to manually upload the video in the Google Photos app by selecting the video, tapping the 3-dots icon, and tapping Back up now. Be sure to use a fast Wi-Fi connection and keep the Google  Photos app open while the video is being uploaded.

Have been at a family memorial celebration for my brother. Collected 20 photos into an album, to share with the family. It has been three days and the album is still unable to be shared. Have used this with a WiFi and cell connection.

I'm having the same issue and can't seem to resolve it. I made an album and when I click share, I get a message saying "Can't share album. Try again in a few minutes". It has been like this for two weeks. Also the album doesn't have a thumbnail image like all my other albums. In my search box in the top right, there's a revolving dotted blue circle with an arrow and when I click it, it tells me that it's uploading 7 items, and there's 2 items left. It has also been like this for 2 weeks. In addition, I have had my husband share photos with me and I can't see his photos. When I click on the shared folder, the newest photos don't seem to load and there's a message at there bottom saying 'troible loading partner media'. I have tried clearing the app data but that doesn't seem to work. Please help.
