Your Google Photos image collection can already feature a personalized screensaver or image carousel on smart devices around your home, such as the Nest Hub. And today, those photos can also grace your Android phone’s home screen in a kind of live wallpaper.
Google Photos’ latest app upgrade enables you to place your memories as a mechanically rotating background. To use this feature, you should have the app’s v5.22. Once you’ve updated it, here is how you can set your photos as live wallpaper:
- Go to your home screen and long-press an empty space.
- Head to the wallpaper section.
- Scroll down to Live wallpapers.
- Select Memories to set your images as a live wallpaper.
Regrettably, there’s no way to control what image shows up as a wallpaper on your home display or lock display. So, be prepared to get random and amusing pictures you do not recall you recorded.
