Although Google changed the plans of Google Photos that used to offer unlimited storage space, it hasn’t affected many users. Many Google Photos users were still happy with the 15GB of free space offered with every Google Account.
Within the 15GB limit, users can store their photos & videos on Google Photos. While using the Google Photos app, we recently discovered another best feature that was kept hidden from the users.
Google Photos has a slideshow feature that can have all of the photos from a specific album play one after another automatically. The feature is available for every Google Photos user on desktop & mobile.
So, if you are interested in creating and viewing the Google Photos slideshow, you are reading the right guide. In this article, we will share a step-by-step guide on how to create a Google Photos Slideshow on desktop & mobile.
