PICASA Web Album Channel dead? Still in the Channel Store.

Bought a new Roku Ultra.  Installed my favorite PICASA Web Album Channel.  It asked for a new authentication code be entered at google.com/device  I entered code and Google responded that installation was SUCCESSFUL!  Returned to my Roku Ultra and pressed OK on the remote.  Got the API ERROR try again later dialog box.  Is this channel no longer functioning?  It is still listed as an active channel in the Channel Store.  In addition, I see the developer is listed as ROKU!   Anyone with the same problem?  How do I view my Google photos now?

Google is retiring Picasa. https://picasa.google.com

Have you tried searching the Channel Store for Google Photos?

Thanks for the speedy reply.  The Google Photo Viewer channel works great.  What is misleading is that ROKU still shows PICASA as an active channel!  Looks like there is a little housekeeping to be done.  Thanks again for your help.
