MMM-Assistant2Display doesn´t show any photos

  • Hello,
    I installed the modules MMM-GoogleAssistant and MMM-Assistant2Display.

    But I have a problem with displaying photos.

    When I sayed, “JARVIS, show me a video from the soccer game Brazil vs Germany”, a Youtube-Video will be shown.

    But when I sayed, “JARVIS, show me a photo from a tree”, only a google-Link will be shown.

    Here you can see my config file

    var config = {
            address: "localhost", // Address to listen on, can be:
                                  // - "localhost", "", "::1" to listen on loopback interface
                                  // - another specific IPv4/6 to listen on a specific interface
                                  // - "", "::" to listen on any interface
                                  // Default, when address config is left out or empty, is "localhost"
              electronOptions: {
                     webPreferences: {
                          webviewTag: true

                          usePhotos: true,
                          displayDelay: 10 * 1000
                spotify: {
                          useSpotify: true,

                          maxVolume: 100

    I enabled the debugging. But I don´t know, where I can find the logs.

    Unfortunately I didn´t found something in this forum.

    It would be great if someone could help me.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi,
    usePhotos functionality is for displaying your own google photos album
    So it’s not for displaying web-links, you can use links module for this

  • Hi,
    thank you for your response.

    Then I obviously got it wrong. I searched for the links module, but unfortunately I couldn’t find it or anything like this.

    Please, can you give me a tip, which module you mean exactly.

    Thanks in advance.
