To download a new wallpaper, your phone must be connected to the Internet preferably through Wi-Fi.

1. To get started, access the main settings menu by tapping on the Gear or Settings icon from the Home or Apps screen.

3. You can sort the results by tapping any from the given tabs including Categories, Selected, New, Top and more. We’ll just choose the Categories tab to proceed with this demo. Different wallpaper categories will populate the next display.

4. Just scroll to pick your preferred categories. Then, tap to mark the wallpaper that you’d like to use. After making a selection, tap the Apply button beneath.

5. If prompted, specify if you want to set it as the new wallpaper for lock screen, home screen, or set both. The new wallpaper will then be saved and applied to your Home or Lock screen.

6. Alternatively, you can change and set a new wallpaper from preloaded Themes. To do this, simply go back to the Settings menu and then tap Themes to launch the Themes app.

10. After selecting the photo, tap the More icon represented by a triple-dot figure in a circle.

11. From the side menu, select the option to Set as wallpaper. Then, tap Apply. Again, you may opt to set it as wallpaper for lock screen, home screen or both.

All you have to do is access the Play Store, search for wallpaper apps, and then select any from the results. Google also shows a number of recommended apps for you to choose from. Once you’ve downloaded and installed the preferred app, just launch it and start scouring for the wallpaper of your choice.
