Earlier today, the official Google Pixel 3 wallpapers leaked online along with the Pixel Wallpapers app containing the new Live Wallpapers. While the high-quality still images of the live wallpapers are nice, what people really want are the new Google Pixel 3 Live Wallpapers. The few users who could install the leaked Live Wallpapers APK discovered that some of the wallpapers appeared on the Always on Display on their Google Pixel 2, but most users can’t install it because the APK requires an Android Pie device. Now, XDA Recognized Developer Pranav Pandey has ported the Pixel 3 Live Wallpapers app so it’ll work on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and later.
There are 28 total wallpapers divided into two groups: “Come Alive” and “Living Universe.” There are 5 sets of wallpapers in the “Coming Alive” group:
Bloom Cloud, Bloom Sky, Bloom Sunrise
Bubble Up Lemon, Bubble Up Peach, Bubble Up Plum
Burst Dusk, Burst Forest, Burst Midnight
Groove After Dark, Groove Chill, Groove Party
Pixie Cobalt, Pixie Emerald, Pixie Periwinkle
There are 4 sets of new wallpapers in the “Living Universe” group:
Bird’s-Eye View, Zion National Park
Light the Way, Schwyz
White Sands, Sonoran Desert
Tropical Voyage, Malolo Barrier Reef
Like the Live Wallpapers pack from the Google Pixel 2, these Live Wallpapers are more than just animated videos playing in the background. They might react to music playback, notifications, time of day, movement, and more. Here’s a preview of the Live Wallpapers you’ll get in this port of the Pixel 3’s Pixel Wallpapers app, which was leaked online by @IshanAgarwal24.
Download Google Pixel 3 Live Wallpapers Port
As noted before, this is a port of the Live Wallpapers from the upcoming Pixel 3 devices. Unlike the original APK which requires you to be on an official Android Pie release or a custom ROM, this one should be installable on any ARM64 Android device running Android 6.0 Marshmallow or later. That means if your device is on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Android 7.0 Nougat, Android 7.1 Nougat, Android 8.0 Oreo, Android 8.1 Oreo, or Android 9 Pie, you can enjoy the Google Pixel 3 Live Wallpapers.
The developer notes that on some devices from Samsung, Xiaomi, and others, you’ll need to also install the Google Wallpapers app from the Google Play Store to set these live wallpapers. You can download it from the link below.
Next up, the developer states that he had to remove the WallpaperColors API so it would work on older devices. That means the SystemUI color will not change according to the live wallpaper. Lastly, he states that the Audio Visualization wallpapers (such as Grooze) will not work on Android 7.1 or below devices. We highly recommend you visit the XDA forum thread below to stay up to date on the latest developments by Pranav Pandey. If you have any issues with the port, you’ll find the developer active on this thread. If there are any updates to the port, you’ll also find them here.
