Google Photos finally has a slideshow!


Google Photos finally has a slideshow!

Google Photos does all manner of crazy cool stuff, including syncing your images for free to the cloud and automatically creating albums and sometimes great videos from your snaps and footage.

You really should be using it right now because it's totally free and available on Android, desktop and iOS. But if you've ever wanted to show off your snaps to someone you may have noticed one bizarre missing feature - there's no slideshow!

Thankfully the folks at Google have now fixed this error and you can easily tap to get your images scrolling past your no-doubt rapt audience. Just go into an image and hit the menu button at the top right and choose slideshow.

[Yes we stood near some donuts at Taste of Dublin. We probably didn't eat all of them...]

Right now on Android the images cycle really slowly and there doesn't seem to be a way to control the speed. The control is also supposed to be available on desktop but it hasn't appeared for us yet. There's no word on an iOS release.
