What photo manager doesn't let you show off images in a slideshow? Google Photos, it turns out. If this is news to you, then you're finding out right at the moment when the situation is changing. Google Photos has now added a slideshow option.

I don't need to explain slideshows to you. You've been watching computer programs automatically cycle through images since the days software came on floppy disks. The Google Photos experience isn't going to blow your mind.

Except you can send your slideshow to a TV using Google Cast. Connecting to a Chromecast isn't anything new, but now you can have everyone in the room see your photos without having to switch them manually or show them off using Backdrop. So there you go.
