A Christmas gift for Android Police readers: 60+ high-res wallpapers

Tuesday, December 18th, 2018

Merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, jolly Kwanzaa, or content December. I'll let you pick the greeting you identify with most. During this time of year it's lovely to focus on the things that bring us together, and one thing I think we can all agree on here at AP is that free stuff is awesome. In that spirit of awesomeness, I'd like to give each of you a small gift to celebrate Christmas (I'm doing the giving here, so I think I get to pick the occasion). 

As much as I'd like to send you all a Pixel 3, a MacBook, or an Xbox, I don't have the money for that, and if I did, I probably would spend it on something sweet like a hovercraft loaded out with flamethrowers and a snow-cone machine.

Google Wallpapers passes 100 million Play Store downloads

Thursday, December 13th, 2018

Google's Wallpapers app is pretty excellent, providing an ample selection of high-quality backdrops for your smartphone, tablet, or Play Store-equipped Chomrebook. The app hit the Play Store just a couple years ago, and it's been tearing it up ever since, having already passed 100 million installs.

Like is often the case with these things, not all of those 100 million are intentional installations; the app comes pre-loaded on some phones, like Pixel devices (although those aren't exactly setting the sales charts on fire).

Thursday, September 27th, 2018

You may not have heard, but Android turned 10 this week. Over the course of the past decade, Google has loaded its phones up with tons of quality wallpapers — and here, we've tried to create a comprehensive repository of them.

This collection doesn't include live wallpapers, which are a little trickier to share, or the dozens of wallpapers available through Google's Wallpapers app. But it does feature more than 100 of the backdrops that have graced our mobile screens over the years.

Friday, August 10th, 2018

For those of us who like to change our wallpapers up often, it's always interesting to see what's included on the latest and greatest phones. The Galaxy Note9 was officially announced yesterday, and we already have all 12 wallpapers available for your perusal and download.

A couple are simple gradients, but most are slightly different takes on the same colorful squiggle look. I'm sure there's a better term for them, but hey, I'm not an art guy.

New tabs on Chrome will soon be customizable with wallpapers

Wednesday, June 6th, 2018

Chrome's new tab page has been plain white for as long as I can remember, with users seeking more customization opting for various other solutions. However, it seems like Google has finally seen the light, having added a "Customize background" button in the latest version of Chrome Canary. Too bad it isn't functional yet.

In Chrome Canary 64-bit v69.0.3451.0, a reader noticed a little gear cog on the bottom right of the New Tab page.

Friday, April 13th, 2018

Weeks after its official end, it feels like winter is finally relenting, and Google seems to be getting into the vernal spirit: the company shared a number of spring-themed wallpapers on its Instagram Story yesterday, featuring its trademark color scheme in a variety of warm-weather scenes with the message "Happy Spring Screening." One of the screens in particular, featuring Google-colored ice pops, looks like it could be a tease for the full name of the upcoming Android P—but it almost certainly isn't.
