Last Update Date : Mar 22. 2018

Changing the Wallpaper

Choose what you see on the Home screen (behind your shortcuts and widgets) and what you see on your device's lock screen.

  1. From the Home screen touch and hold an empty area of the screen.
  2. Choose Set wallpaper.
  3. Select Home screen, Lock screen or Home and lock screens and choose from:
    • Gallery: Select a wallpaper from photos you have taken with your camera or uploaded to your device.
      Note: If you select a wallpaper from Gallery select a photo and then quickly double-touch Crop picture. Crop the photo to the size you prefer and then touch Done.
    • Live wallpapers: Select an animated wallpaper. Not available if Lock screen is selected.
      Note: Using animated Live wallpapers can deplete your battery faster than photo wallpapers.
    • Photos: Select a wallpaper from photos stored in Google Photos. Available only when Home screen is selected.
    • Travel wallpaper: Automatically displays recommended destinations. Only available when Lock screen is selected.
      Note: Using Travel wallpaper requires a data connection.
    • Wallpapers: Select from preloaded wallpapers.
  4. Select a wallpaper and then touch Done or Set wallpaper.
