Today it is difficult to think of something more personal than a smartphone. We use it as a means of communication, entertainment, financial management, storage of important data, and much more. It's even hard to imagine what it can be compared to, because neither the secretary nor the concierge usually does the kind of assignments that are usually given to smartphones. As a result, we get used to them so much that we agree to replace them with a new model only in the most extreme situations. However, this does not mean that we do not want to change something in the device during operation.
Tired of your desktop picture? Just set up autocorrect
Microsoft introduced the Bing Wallpapers app for Android, which not only has an extensive library of screensavers and wallpapers for the lock screen, but also allows you to change them daily. You just need to select a set of images that suit your taste and install one of them on your desktop. After that, a special timer will turn on, which will count down the time until the expiration of the use of a particular picture and change it to another one of the same subject.
Wallpaper app for Android
At the moment, the Bing Wallpaper application may not be available to all users on Google Play, so if you cannot download it from the official catalog, you will have to contact the unofficial ones. I myself am not a supporter of this approach, because I consider it unsafe, but what can you not do for the sake of detailed instructions, which will almost certainly attract the attention of the audience Android Insider.ru. So I just grabbed and downloaded Bing Wallpaper from APKMirror. I advise you to do the same only if you have sufficient confidence that you need it.
- Go to 'Settings' – 'Security' and enable the 'Download from unknown sources' option;
- Go to Google Play or APKMirror and download the Bing Wallpaper app;
Turn on autocorrect desktop images and assign a period
- If you downloaded the APK file to APKMirror, go to Chrome – 'Downloaded Files' and install the app;
- Launch the application, go to the context menu, and from there to Auto Change Wallpaper and set the refresh period for the images.
Quality wallpapers for Android
Install the image you like and in a day it will be replaced by another from the same category
Bing Wallpaper does include a wide range of images covering a wide variety of topics. You will not find here skulls on fire, crosses entwined with ivy and other trash that has no artistic value. Here you can find high-quality photographs taken by professional photographers, as well as automatic photography systems, for example, when it comes to photographs of space bodies, other planets, the Earth or its satellite. If desired, you can sort images by country, category, and even by the prevailing color.
If you are too lazy to search on your own, you can go to the Daily Image section, which is updated daily and offers you images of current events. For example, I found there photographs of medieval frescoes, stained-glass windows and tapestries, which change daily with new ones, surprising me day after day. Now it has become a kind of quest for me to guess which picture will appear on the desktop this time. I have never guessed it yet, but I have never regretted turning on auto-update.
How to find wallpapers for Android
Find a picture to your liking
Bing Wallpaper is also good in that it provides access not only to the existing images, but also to many others, which are accessed by the built-in search engine. Therefore, if you want to get something completely atypical, just fill in the name of the pictures you are interested in and see what Bing will offer you. However, personally, I never had to refer to third-party images, since the standard set was more than enough.
Unfortunately, it also has some drawbacks. First, it is, of course, unavailability on Google Play. Because of this, many users will have to look for the application on alternative sites, which, whatever one may say, can be dangerous. Secondly, this is the lack of localization into Russian. Despite the fact that there are no complex linguistic constructions here, and the control is extremely intuitive, it would obviously be much more pleasant to consume content in Russian.
