How do I change the image or wallpaper on the Always on Display?
The Always on Display lets you see information from your phone on the standby screen, such as a clock, your notifications and the music that is being played. This allows you get the information you need without having to touch or unlock your phone, saving you time and saving your battery. You can customise your Always On Display, to change the clock type, the information that is shown and to add your own picture or GIF.
Please note: the Always On Display feature was added to Samsung smartphones with the launch of the Galaxy S7. Always On Display is not available on any device made before this due to hardware limitations
Please note: there are both free and paid themes for the Always On Display
You can also choose from one of the GIFs that are pre-installed on your device.
