If you own a newer device, there are new live wallpapers for you to explore that other devices can’t.
Since launching its feature drop in December, Google has given new features to Pixel owners once every three months. The Live Bloom wallpaper collection features photos of colorful flowers and was released in December. There is a 3D effect where the flowers shift and sway when you tilt your device.
You won’t find the Live Bloom wallpaper after you update your device. You will have to use the Pixel Live Wallpaper app to get the new background.
Instead of an operating system update, the new wallpaper for the devices is delivered via the live wallpaper app. You need to have version 2.0 of the app on a newer version of the phone, like a Pixel 4a or newer. The link will take you to the Play Store where you can update or install the wallpaper.
