I would like to be able to initiate the play of more that one slideshow at a time. That is, I would like to specify that after a particular slide show finishes…that another one (selected one) begins. Is this possible?Cool

The only way I can think of to do that is to create a third album with all the photos from the first two. Then play the slideshow from the third album.

You can have up to 20,000 photos in one album

An idea – do you use Chromecast on your TV? If so, have you discovered the Ambient mode settings where you can select multiple albums with the Google Home app and all the photos will play on your TV? It’s like a screensaver – it plays the photos randomly, combining all the photos from the albums you select. Not exactly what you’re looking for … but maybe?

Here’s the show we did on Chromecast: Episode 108
