Wallpapers aren’t something you’d call a feature. Every phone has a wallpaper and every phone lets you choose freely what image you set as your wallpaper. That said, good wallpapers are hard to come by. You might find some great collections and galleries if you regularly browse Imgur but nice HD wallpapers that are the right size for your phone are harder to come by. It’s precisely why wallpapers that Google or Apple release for their respective smartphone operating systems are so popular. The Google Pixel phones are no exception, in fact, they come with a dedicated Wallpapers app. The app, even in its preview state, has been so popular that Google released it all Android phones. The Wallpapers app gives five wallpaper collection to choose from. You get a new wallpaper daily. You can select any one wallpaper for both your lock screen and home screen, or you can enable daily wallpapers.
The Wallpapers app has fivecollection; Earth, Landscapes, Cityscapes, Life, and Textures. Tap any one of the categories to view the wallpapers.
Inside a collection, you have the option to select one of the wallpapers or get a new wallpaper everyday by tapping the ‘Daily Wallpaper’ option.
The daily wallpaper gives a fresh wallpaper that fits the collection you selected. If you don’t want your wallpaper changing everyday, you can select one from the collection. Tap the ‘Set wallpaper’ option at the top right of the wallpaper’s preview. You can set it for both the lock screen and the home screen, or for just one of them.
The Wallpapers app doesn’t feature all the wallpapers the Pixel phones have.
The wallpapers app features photos exclusively. Even the textures collection has photos as opposed to abstract art. For each photo, you can see details for who took it and check out the camera type and focus settings for the photo. The photos come from 500px though so in order to see this information you will need the 500px app installed on your phone. You can use 500px via the Chrome app or any other web browser but the app makes for a better experience.
