I recently upgraded to a Gen 3 Chromecast and under Ambient/Experimental, Facebook was missing. No worries, I really wanted to set up Flickr. I’ve been using Flickr for well over a decade somI have a LOT of albums, but the Google Home app would only show me the newest 198 albums. This meant there we a lot of older travel albums couldn’t be included. As a work around, I decided to make an album just for the Chromecast. I moved ~12,000 pictures to the album, and added the album to the slide show rotation. This made Flickr disappear from Ambient/Experimental as well. I’ve since deleted the album, and restarted the chromecast, but Flickr is still missing.

A) How can I get Flickr back?
B) What is the upper limit on the number of photos I can have in slideshow rotation?

I don't have nearly as many photos, but still Flickr dissapeared from the ambient display. Just today, all of a sudden.

Also upset that the option for Flickr just disappeared today. Have stored many photos there specifically to show them over the chromecast for years now.

If this is a way for Google to force people to pay for more Google Photos storage... I’m taking a different media stick...

On any Android phone or tablet, you can install an app called FlickFolio. It will allow you to create slide shows of your Flickr albums and cast them to your Chromecast in a very flexible way. Works a treat! It's actually better than the way Chromecast did it as it doesn't arbitrarily crop some images.
