Google Wallpapers App Update Brings New Wallpapers

The Google Wallpapers app for Android has been updated with several new wallpapers in most of the existing categories within the app.  The update, version 1.1.153125266 for those keeping score at home, adds wallpaper options in the Earth, Landscapes, Life, Textures, and Cityscapes sections of the app, giving you the option for more personalization of your devices.

Wallpapers is an app that is native to the Pixel lineup but shortly after the release of the phones, Google released the app (officially – it has been available as a side-load APK for months prior) for Android devices running 4.1 or higher.  It allows users to select a wallpaper for their Home page as well as the lock screen on their devices, both of which can be different wallpapers.

Depending on the category, there are from 6 to 12 new wallpapers to enjoy.  If you haven’t used the app, go to the wallpaper you

are interested in applying, tap the Set Wallpaper button, and you can select to have it as your Home screen wall, your lock screen or both.  All of the wallpapers included are high resolution so they work great for both phones and tablets.

Of note, there are no new Live Earth, Live Data or New Elements wallpapers in this update.  These remain exclusive to the Pixel lineup.

If you have a Pixel or have installed the app, the update is rolling out now and should hit your devices over the course of the next few days.  If you haven’t installed it, Google Wallpapers is a free app in the Play Store.
