I noticed over there is a Google picture channel currently on Roku. It additionally doubles together a screensaver. Sweet!

I installed it and also linked my account on mine Roku 4. It was kinda sluggish to pull up mine albums however I do have a many pics on mine account. Ns noticed in the setups that you might link more than one account. I will try to attach the wife's account later. Yet all in all it go work!

The screensaver is kinda meh... It brings in small pictures rather of somewhat virtually full screen ones. I was kinda expecting something prefer the developed in Roku screensaver v the pics friend send approximately it. Certainly needs a little work but hopefully they will improve it. The wife and I miss out on the photo screensaver top top the Amazon firestick since it would show our arbitrarily photos due to the fact that both of our phones dumped right into the account plus she DSLR photos. That was funny at times to just let it present us random older pics.

Is there somewhere to compose the channel dev?

I think this is the same application that ns tried on my 4K setup (wanted to usage TV together a photo album for my 4K-formatted google photos). Sadly, that does not support 4K. There is one more Google Photos application (do a Roku find for Google Photos) and also thats what I finished up installing. It supports 4K and has the 5 minute per-slide timer that ns wanted. Unfortunately, it does not support Roku's Screensaver ... Which ns am ok with because the screensaver has actually a really short per-slide timer. I desire to showcase my 4K photos and also keep the on the display screen for a while so my friends can look closely and appreciate it.

I'm the developer of GooglePhotos Roku channel. Over there is a version 1.6 which was submitted to Roku 2 weeks earlier to approve...still waiting.. V.1.6 will certainly introduce new screensavers amongst other features. (Full size screensaver! and also multi-scrolling). (https://github.com/chtaylo2/Roku-GooglePhotos/releases/tag/1.6)

The API timeout worry is recognized (https://github.com/chtaylo2/Roku-GooglePhotos/issues/38), once Roku approves v1.6, I'll obtain a job release produced to deal with that. It's only been reported by a couple folks v very huge album sizes.

Hope you reap the channel.


JRai - This have to be released in Canada, actually roughly the world. If you're not seeing it, I'll need to check with Roku ~ above why that is.

Thanks for coming right here to respond!

Is there a private channel us could add to beta test the more recent version when Roku is reviewing the update?

It bring in tiny pictures rather of somewhat almost full screen ones.

I'm not sure what the deal appears to be with this--there is a picture screensaver that can pull photos from a USB journey which ns use, and I likewise have the very same complaint. It only shows thumbnails. The Roku is obviously qualified of displaying full-screen photos together a screensaver, as there room many channels that execute it, however there are none the I've found that enable you to carry out it v your an individual photos. They every shrink the photos.

The exemption is Facebook, but that application is continuous logging me out. Annoying.
