Chromcast Google Photos Ambient Mode -- Name Issues

I'm successfully sharing photo albums via Chromecast Ambient Mode but I'd like to change the naming protocol if possible.  The default is name of the Google Photos Folder and the date the photo was saved there.  I want to show the photo file name not the default info. I have been digitizing decades-old slides and naming the saved slides by the date and location where they were taken.  They go into a folder named, for example, "Egypt 1985."  So Ambient shows me "Egypt 1985 Dec 17, 2021" with the latter date being the date of digitization to my computer.  I want it to show the photo file name "Pyramids 19############".  How do I do this?

Hey there OutsideTheLaw,

I apologize about the late response on this thread, thank you for being patient! Were you able to find the answer to your Ambient Mode question? If not, I'd be happy to help out! While looking around at the Ambient Mode settings and doing some research, it doesn't look like there is a way to change the way Ambient Mode pulls its names for photos. If this is something you'd like to see in the future, I'd recommend you submit feedback via the Google Home app. While Google won't respond directly back to you, it is the best way to submit feature requests, as they take all submitted feedback seriously.


I am sorry I couldn't have been more helpful, but if you have any other questions or concerns for me, please let me know!


Best regards,
Jeran
