When displaying my Google photos on my TV using Chromecast and ambient mode is there a certain amount of time for time out where it goes back to the original screen? I have a Samsung frame and it appears that my screensaver stops after about 15 to 20 minutes and it goes back to the artwork on my frame.
I don’t know of a timeout setting on Chromecast – our chromecast ambient mode photos are going all day on our TV. It may be a specific Samsung frame setting. Or … could it be that the album you chose for ambient mode only has 20 minutes worth of photos in it?
I found this on the Samsung site: https://www.samsung.com/us/sup…..G01216243/
If that does not address your issue, there is a “Contact Samsung” link on that page as well.
Hope that helps – we love seeing our photos on the big screen TV!
