Hi - I use Google Photos as my main photo library with my family. I share with them multiple albums allowing them to add photos into it.

The only app that works for me to browse all added photos in albums is Google Photo app - unfortunately it does not work on Android TV. I know I can chromecast it but why should i do it if I have Android TV?

I have managed to install Google Photo app myself but it does not work well - or even at all, cannot be controlled using remote

Any suggestions? Thanks

It works now with Google Assistant. You can't really browse, but tell it to "show pictures from xxx" and it will. You can also cast from photos on a phone.

download the Google Photo app .apk file from a mirror, and install it via a file manager. You'll also need a sideload launcher app to use apps that don't show on the main screen.
