Есть только небольшое но, я не могу его настроить, насколько понял, он имеет только один вид привью. Это конечно не очень удобно, и слишком банально. Но ничего лучше найти не смог.

Be only fair to say it does work, on WordPress 5.x also. Very simple in terms of options it seems to me. But by the time you've tried a million ways to simply embed a google photos album, without hiccups *which is much harder than it should be*, then you begin to appreciate that the slideshow is the only way to go. This works at least. No menus or anything after installation, just shortcode with album url in it.. [embed-google-photos-album "...google photos album url..."].
