Show iCloud Photo Stream as a Slideshow or Screen Saver on Apple TV
Want to show a quick slideshow to your friends and family of pictures contained within Photo Stream? Assuming you already have Apple TV signed into your iCloud account, do the following:
- From the main Apple TV menu choose “Internet” and select “Photo Stream”
- Choose “Slideshow” to start the slideshow
By default this will go through all images contained within Photo Stream, that means every picture in the photos library of an iPhone and iPad, keep that in mind if you have pictures on any such device that you don’t necessarily want to share.
You can also set the Photo Stream to show as the default Apple TV screen saver:
- Go to Settings and choose Screen Saver
- Choose the Slideshow and under slideshow settings choose iCloud Photo Stream
Again you’ll want to remember that everything in the photo stream gets displayed, so you may want to create a specific folder or collection of images if you have some pictures you don’t want to share with everyone in your living room.
