    I've left my Photos app running overnight and have loads of memories created now, but I can't seem to work out how to play the slideshows - each memory has a big header image which looks like it should be the slideshow or videos as seen on iOS 10 but clicking on it doesn't seem to do anything.

    Am I missing something very obvious or are there no memories slideshows / videos in Sierra at the moment?

    I just press it (as in touch it, what's the right term?) and it comes up "Creating Movie' with a circle showing how much left to do... Once that completes (5 seconds?) then it starts playing the slideshow with some goofy music playing as well

    Sorry - that's on phone. I'll play on laptop and come back to you later ?

    OK - there's a Play button on the top (sideways triangle) which is a menu with 'Play Slideshow' at the bottom.

    Ah thanks, yeah I just wasn't sure if slideshow was the same as memories - I thought they might be different. Thanks for getting back to me!

    A little bit of here and a little bit of there.

    But that slideshow is clearly different than the memories video that was demonstrated for iOS 10. Does macOS not get the same level of functionality? Is it just not implemented yet? Is it hardware limited? Am I doing something wrong?
