Android 8 / Gal S8 not syncing photos

My phone has stopped syncing photos - I've got plenty of storage available on my phone and on my account. Not sure what's going on or where to start.

Thanks!

All taken care of - forgot that this was a replacement phone and for some reason when it downloaded all my apps to the new phone that setting didn't turn on automatically.

Thank YOu!

Hey there (@jenng94), I’m here to help you move forward on the matter as much as I can; I hope you’ve had a great Friday so far! 
 
Since I’d like to ensure that I’m following-up on the right thing (& I’m sending you the most appropriate info), I’d appreciate it if you could answer these questions below to give me some context on what’s happening:
 
Spoiler
  • For starters, can you let me know whether you’ve updated your android phone to the latest OS version? Also, are you running the latest version of our app (122.2.2)? 
  • Following, can you please clarify if you’re uploading your photos manually, using the (+) button, or you’ve enabled the Camera Uploads feature?
  • I’d appreciate a screenshot (omitting personal info) of what you’re seeing (or just in case you’re getting any error messages) in your next message here, so as to get a better idea of what’s happening.
Thanks in advance for taking a bit of your time to gather this info for me & I’ll be awaiting your next reply on this discussion, in order to check back the possible causes in more depth together. Enjoy the rest of your day until we talk again!
