Dynamic wallpaper on Galaxy Note20

You’ve probably seen your Lock screen more times than you can count. Keep things fresh with Dynamic Lock screen, which automatically changes your Lock screen’s wallpaper. Now a surprise is waiting for you on your phone. You just don’t know it yet.

Set up and use the Dynamic Lock screen

With the Dynamic Lock screen, wallpapers on your Lock screen will rotate every time your phone wakes up. However, to use this feature you need to download a Fresh pack. These are groups of wallpapers that will update automatically every two weeks.

From Settings, search for and select Dynamic Lock screen under Lock screen, and then tap Dynamic Lock screen. Tap Apply, select the Fresh pack you want to install, and then tap Download. If desired, check or uncheck Use Wi-fi only. Your new Dynamic Lock screen will automatically be applied as your wallpaper. Now you’re all set and can check out your new Lock screen.
