In this guide, we will show you the steps to fix the issue wherein the Nest Photo Frame changes to Curated Art from Google Photos on its own. When it comes to Google smart displays, then you have three different options to set in Ambient Mode: Google Photos, Art Gallery, and Experimental.
In this regard, users generally opt for Google Photos as it allows them to set their own personalized images and memory of the past. However, numerous users have voiced their concern that even though they have explicitly set the Photo Frame to Google Photos, it automatically changes and reverts to Curated Art.
This seems to be happening across the variants of Google Nest and even non-Google displays seem to be affected by this bug. What is even more concerning is the fact that this issue is going on for the past four years, with no fix in sight. With that said, there does exist a nifty workaround that shall help you rectify this bug. So without further ado, let’s check it out.
Fix Nest Photo Frame changes to Curated Art from Google Photos
- To begin with, launch the Google Home app on your device.
- Then select your device from the list and go to its Settings menu.

As far as the official stance on this matter is concerned, the developers are aware of this issue, but they haven’t given out any ETA for the rollout of a fix. As and when that happens, we will update this guide accordingly. In the meantime, the aforementioned workarounds are your best bet.
