Ambient mode for Chromecast built in

Hi 

I would like to know how to get the ambient mode to show all my google photos and not just ones it thinks I wish to see over and over.

I have no photos selected as faviourts nor do I have any highlight photos.

I would like to to scroll through all of my photos and not just a selected few.

Plus how do I get rid of the advertisement 'build in Chromecast' from the bottom of my TV screen

Many thanks

You will need to choose the photos you want. Normally there's a list of options -- if you simply turned ambient mode on and didn't review or pay attention to the options I think it will default to the art gallery -- you get what they give you in that case.

If you want your own photos, you'll need to set it up again while following directions for choosing your own photo library.

Yes I have followed directions

Have photos in select folder to show

Yet instead of going through photos it only shows the same 10 photos instead of all the 1000 photos that are in selected folder.

I’d like to know how to get it to shuffle through all photos please

Have you checked in Google Photos and made sure that the albums you want to share have been marked as shareable.

Hi folks,

 

Thanks for the help, GothamNY.

 

krid2443, you may also try to turn off curation for those albums by changing the “Personal photo curation” setting to “Live albums only."

 

Keep us posted and let us know if you still need help with this.

 

Thanks,

Jennifer

Hey krid2443,

 

Yikes! Could you please try to mark your photos as favorites? Also, try to create a new album and save your photos there. If the issue still persists, please send feedback through the Google Home app and reach out to your TV manufacturer for further help.

 

Thanks,

Jennifer
