Google Photos now supports slideshows

Google Photos is a legitimately incredible thing, harnessing the power of advanced machine learning and neural networks to automatically sort your pictures into albums and turn your library into an endlessly searchable database, the likes of which would have been difficult to imagine just a few years ago.

Until today, however, it did not support one of the most basic features you might expect from a photo app: slideshows. And now it does.

The feature lets you play through photos in any album automatically, offering a new hands-free way to bore your family. It's available now to web and Android users; no word of an iOS update just yet.
