Google has disabled Android TV Photo Sharing

Google has now disabled Android TV photo sharing for all the users after it came across an account privacy issue. The users who seemed to be affected were able to see the profile pictures and names of hundreds of accounts.

A Twitter user had first spotted the bug while he was setting up a screensaver on a Vu brand TV. The bug also made it unable to access the entire photo collection from that users accounts. It displayed only the account name and profile picture.

Google claims to have investigated the bug and has also disabled the ability to remotely cast via the Google Assistant or view photos from Google Photos on Android devices.
