Got bored with the default Android wallpapers. Then there are several wallpaper apps available in the play store. You can download the app of your choice and try the different wallpapers they provide. May be sometimes those annoying ads which pop up along with these apps are big turn offs.



Now the big daddy, Google have decided to come up with their own Wallpapers Android app. Wallpaper brings a tons of background pictures to brighten up your phone, sorted into categories like Landscapes, Cityscapes, Life, Earth and Textures. The app pulls in images from Google Earth and partner sites like 500px.

Make the most of your display with beautiful wallpapers and advanced features. Choose one of your own photos, an image from the Google Earth collection, a scenic landscape from Google+, and more. Change it as often as you like, so your phone always represents your style.

  • Enjoy a collection that keeps on growing. Access images from Google Earth, Google+, and other partners.
  • Double your fun. Show the world one wallpaper on your lock screen, and keep one for yourself on your home screen. (Requires Android 7.0, Nougat, and above.)
  • Start each day fresh. Pick your favorite category and you’ll get a new wallpaper image each day.


If you are running Android 7 and above, then you can set different images for your home screen and lock screen.

The app is free and you can download the app from the Google Play Store.
