“Style and Wallpapers” is Going to be a Pixel Exclusive App [Hands-on!]


Google is planning to launch a Pixel-exclusive theming app. The app is called “Style and Wallpapers”. And we have got a hands-on experience with it! (via 9to5Google).

There’s a new shortcut “Styles & Wallpapers” on the Pixel Launcher. Opening that launches a two-tab interface that contains a section for picking a wallpaper as well as a tab for creating a new style for your device. 

The new theming capabilities are something that got our attention.

Luckily, we can still show how you’ll be able to create your own custom theme through the app. Tapping the “Custom” button first asks you to pick a font. Again, the Pixel 3 XL only has two fonts here since its version of Android 10 isn’t fully equipped for these new theming functions.

Once you have decided which font you like, you can pick your icon design. There’s also an option to select your accent color. And finally, you can save your theme and give it a name.
