How To Install New Live Wallpapers

A cool novelty feature of Android is the ability to have a live wallpaper. A live wallpaper is essentially a background on your device that moves constantly and in some cases, actually responds to your touch. If you are looking for another way to make your device stand out, a live wallpaper can definitely cause people that use your phone to go, “What the…?”.

A few live wallpapers come on your device if it is a newer device, but how do you get new ones? Well, let’s show you. Check out the video above for all the details.

      Hello,

      Did you try holding down on the background of the home screen and then selecting Live Wallpapers and then select the new wallpaper?
