Add the Pinterest app to your Home screen on Android

The last time you updated your Pinterest app, you may have noticed the Pinterest icon disappeared from your Home screen on your Android phone or tablet—sorry about that! Here's how to get it back.

  1. Visit My apps & games in the Play Store to check that Pinterest is up to date. If it's not, tap Update
  2. Go to your device's Home screen and tap Apps
  3. Find Pinterest in the list of apps
  4. Press and hold the Pinterest app, slide it in to your Home screen and let go.

Some of these steps may be different on your phone or tablet, because Android isn't exactly the same on every device. You may notice your app disappear again while we're going through some updates, but we're working to fix this so your app stays in place. Thanks for bearing with us!
