About this app

Supporting photos from your device, as well as online sources such as Google Photos.

In-app purchase required - the screensaver is limited to the 50 oldest photos in your library, and the gallery won’t let you view photos and videos full screen. This lets you test the app at your leisure before purchasing if you choose to.

Browse your photos and videos easily, offering a great way to view and share albums on your big screen. Please note that this app is optimised for the TV and will not navigate nicely on a touch device!

Showcase your photos as an Android TV Daydream/Screensaver/Slideshow.

** Photo Sources **
- Google Photos
- Flickr (including your friends and family photos)
- Local photos on your device
- USB devices and SD cards
- NASA Photo a Day
- Any requests? Let us know!

** Features **
- Optionally auto include new photos and albums.
- Easily include or exclude some or all albums.

** Gallery Features*
- Browse your albums for each photo source you choose to add.
- Browse your photos and play your videos full screen.
- Play slideshows of your albums.
- Search your library.

** Screensaver Features
- Photos load in the background for seamless playback.
- Customise the time delay between photos.
- Navigate between photos whilst daydreaming.
- Photos are chosen intelligently based on when they were taken and last viewed.
- Choose to show or hide: portrait photos, the time, information about the photo, currently playing artist and song, if available.

Since this app looks for new photos in the background, it means you only need to set it up and customise once and then you'll never need to think about it again. Just sit back and enjoy watching new and old photos alike, from your own collection as well as any chosen friends and family.

I've given 2 stars out of 5 because that's about how often the screen saver starts properly without crashing my Nvidia Shield Pro. This issue was reported by other commentors (and acknowledged by the dev) as far back as May 2019. It's now the end of July 2020 and still no resolution. Feedback through email has so far been unresponsive. My recommendation is to save your money unless you enjoy turning your Shield back on multiple times after the screen saver crashes repeatedly. When it works, it works well, and I enjoy having my Google photos displayed on my TV. Unfortunately it's just too flaky and the devs are too unresponsive to be reliable or worth the money.

Ever since my Sony 55X900E (android TV) updated about 3 weeks ago, I've had a problem caused by the screensaver. After exiting the screensaver, the select button no longer works on my remote. I've tried 2 remotes to the same issue. The issue doesn't recur if I try another screensaver or disable the "Photo Gallery and Screensaver" app. I have to hard reboot the TV to get the button to work. The problem is clearly caused by the app

Worth the price as an alternative to the default "Daydream" app from Google. Needs two things: The ability to loop the same video during screensaver playback for the duration of the interval between slides. IE, during screensaver mode with videos enabled, a video that comes up will only play for its duration or the selected slide interval, whichever is shorter. For shorter videos, it would be nice to have the option to enable 'loop video until next slide'. More diverse codec support. MP4 is supported, but WEBM and AVI are not.
