If your frame has a sensor window, it will respond to gestures. If you have the Mason or the Sawyer frame, please refer to how to use touch bars.

Wave your hand from right to left to advance a photo and view the next photo in your frame's queue. To go back and view the previous photo, wave your hand from left to right. You can also wave your hand up to view the details of a particular photo, like when and where the photo was taken, and send some love to the person who added the photo to your frame!

Using the gesture control on your Aura frame can take a little bit of practice however we've put together some useful tips to assist you in mastering the art!

  1. Focus your gestures in front of your frame's sensor window.

  2. Wave your hand within two feet of the frame - approximately one foot away.

  3. Stand a little to the left or right of the frame. This is so the sensor can pick up on the light changing with your hand gesture.
