Google Wallpapers just got a huge update with lots of new goodies

If you haven't thumbed through the Google Wallpapers (opens in new tab) app recently, or you don't have it installed at all, today might be a good day to rethink that. A huge update to Wallpapers has added tons of new incredibly high resolution images in several categories. Like the originals, they're all amazing and there's bound to be something there for everyone.

Take a look in the Cityscapes, Life, Textures, and Landscapes categories for the bulk of the new images, and drop us a comment with the name of your favorite!

  • Cool I guess . But what about live wallpapers?
  • Yeah, static photos as wallpapers are soooooo 2001. It's a shame that such a unique Android feature is hidden from sight all the time.
  • I like Google Wallpapers, but I like mine a little bit more outside the box. Something like Walli fits my taste more.
  • I would like to see a category called "Space" or "Stars". Something astronomically themed.
  • Needs a space category!
  • I use the earth one, it changes by the time of the day.
