How to Schedule Photos from Chromecast to TV
The two steps you’ll need to complete before proceeding is that your Chromecast is set up, turned on, and connected to your TV, and you have the photos you want to display on the Chromecast uploaded to Google Photos. Huh. Once everything is ready to go, it only takes a few steps to schedule photos on your TV.
open Google Home app on iOS or Android, and select your Chromecast. Then, tap personalize the environment,
inside ambient mode pick up the tab google photos,
From here, select one album To display from Google Photos, then choose the one you want photos, Follow the onscreen prompts to confirm your selection.
These are your album options: family friends Where you can choose from pictures of people.

scheduling on chromecast
On a Chromecast, when you’re displaying photos, there’s really no need (or way) to “set a schedule” in the traditional sense. The Chromecast displays photos when in ambient mode (as long as it’s configured to do so; more on that below), which it will automatically record if it’s turned on and you’re not casting anything. Huh.
Google will randomly shuffle through your Google Photos images, so you won’t be handing them an order yourself. Accordingly, when using the Chromecast to show off your photos it’s best not to select images that actually require context to be displayed in a certain sequence.
So, as long as your Chromecast is on, your photos will pop up automatically. Also, since Chromecasts are often powered by the TV’s USB connection, all you have to do to turn on Chromecast is turn on your TV, assuming your Chromecast’s input is selected on your TV.
On top of all that, you can also use virtual assistant services like Google Home to turn on your TV, if you have a compatible TV, which means turning on your TV, your Chromecast, and watching your slideshow. The whole process of starting can be done. With one app or completely handsfree whenever you want.
