So far the only way I can do this is to have only one album in the Google Home device.  I would not like to take them all out.  Is there another way?

Thank you.

Not sure I understand your question.

You can create an album just for casting – with as many photos as you like. If they are in separate albums now, just open one, select all photos with click at beginning, shift-click at end, then add to new album called “casting” or something like that. Now go to your other albums and repeat. Now, in Google Home, set it up to cast the “casting” album.
