View slideshow from Google Photos

While you can choose which photos to display in your Google Photos slideshow, you won’t be able to customize them otherwise. The slideshow starts automatically and you cannot change how long a photo is shown before moving on to the next one. You also cannot add or change music. All you can do is select an album and the first photo in the slideshow.

Also, you cannot change the order of the photos. If you create a new slideshow album, the photos will be displayed from oldest to newest, no matter what order you use when adding them to the album. You also cannot share your slideshow directly. You can show it on your device with Google Photos or convert in chromecast, to show your photos on TV, but those are the only options.

This means that if you want a slideshow with all the bells and whistles, you’ll want to look elsewhere. Fortunately, in Play Store There are several alternatives available that will let you add music or improve your slideshow setup.

It’s also worth remembering that you won’t be saving the slideshow separately. It works directly from the album where the slideshow photos are stored (which is why you can create a new slideshow album).

However, if all you really want is something simple and easy to use, then Google Photos Slideshow is the best option. You can set up a slideshow in minutes and it may already be installed on your phone.
