The same way as you would view it on your computer

Use the AppleTV to navigate the net to your Google drive and play the slideshow.

Of course, I could be missing something

Not as far as I know- only with a Mac

If someone didn't have a Mac, that wouldn't work per se. For someone with no iOS devices of Apple computers, Plex/VLC for Apple TV might be required. Read here:


I haven't tried it to get to Google Drive, but the File Explorer app is also reported to provide access to some content stored in one's Google Drive. YMMV.

gogodocs might also be an iOS app you could use on an iPhone or iPad to stream google drive stuff to an apple tv via airplay. Again, this also means you wouldn't need a Mac per se.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
