There are a lot of wallpaper apps on the Google Play Store, yet Google decided to add another one and it is good they did! Most current Wallpaper apps either integrate ads or ask for money, Google Wallpapers on the other hand is free for everyone to use and does not rely on ads, if your Android version is 4.1 (Jelly Bean) or higher. The app originally only ran on the new Pixel and Pixel XL phones by Google and were part of the Android 7.1 Pixel Launcher for these phones. Apparently Google decided to make this feature available for every Android phone out there.
Depending on which version of Android you are running, the app offers a different feature set. Android 4.1 to Android 6.0 users can enjoy high quality curated background images for their home screen which can also be set to change daily and only download over Wifi. Google included images from Google, Google +, Google Earth and 500px and promises to update the content regularly. If your smartphone is already running Android 7.0 or higher, you can pick separate wallpapers for the lock screen and the home screen. Only Pixel Phones are able to use Live Wallpapers for now. Be sure to check out the first version of the app here.
