Download: Google Pixel 2 Live Wallpapers APK For Any Android Device
Google recently announced the second generation of its “Made by Google” smartphone lineup. The new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones will come with the latest iteration of Android, namely, version 8.0 Oreo, along with updated stock apps, such as the Pixel Launcher and Google Camera app, and even a new collection of live wallpapers. The two phones have yet to be released at the time of writing, though an obstacle as meager as that has seldom posed a problem for the Android developer community, and this time’s no different.
Developer Pranav Pandey has been busy porting all of the new Pixel-exclusive live wallpapers for use on any Android device. If you’re looking to get a taste of Google’s new flagship Android phones before they hit the shelves, you can download the modified APK file and install it to your Android device right now.
The package contains a total of 28 wallpapers divided into five different categories covering sprawling landscapes and glimmering, glittery backgrounds that respond to device movement, patterns that respond to touches or change based on your location, and dynamic depictions of stars and planets.
The port is compatible with Snapdragon devices running Android 6.0 Marshmallow and above, with a separate download available for ARM64 devices. As is the case with most ports, however, there are additional compatibility issues, some without a fix that the developer can provide. Certain devices, such as those made by Samsung, might require the Google Wallpapers app from the Google Play Store (link provided at the end). Older ARM32 devices might simply be unable to display the entire selection of the live wallpapers due to hardware incompatibilities.
The developer also notes that these wallpapers, having been designed for high-end chipsets, are likely to lag on devices at the lower end of the spectrum.
Trying the app out won’t cost you anything, though, so why not give it a go? You can download it from the forum thread linked below along with the aforementioned Google Wallpapers app that, depending on your device, may be required to apply the wallpapers.
