A previous update to the Google Pixel Live Wallpaper app prevented older Pixel devices from accessing the app. This was an expensive mistake from the team at Google responsible for the update. Due to this, most users of older Pixel devices could not update to the new app version via the Google Play Store.
Well, this didn’t go unnoticed, as the folks at 9to5Google were able to spot the flaw. According to their report, the device they used to install the update was a Pixel 4a, but it failed. This was because the update wasn’t supported on the Pixel 4a device.
But the Google Pixel 4a will still get updates for the next few months. So why would an update to the Live Wallpaper app not be compatible with a device Google still supports? This was a fault from the update, and new reports have it that a fix is available.
Finally, a fix to the compatibility of the Google Pixel Live Wallpaper app
The update that came with flaws preventing older Pixel devices from accessing the Live Wallpaper app came about a week ago. So, Google’s team responsible for the update have had ample time to look into this issue. Finally, a fix is available, and it grants users of older Pixel devices access to the Live Wallpaper app.
A new update to the Live Wallpaper app has brought a fix to this issue. Now, older devices will be able to install this new update and access the app. This new update is widely rolling out to Google Pixel devices via the Play Store.
Despite the availability of this new update, it is important to take some facts in mind. The Live Wallpaper feature is only available for the Pixel 6 and 7 series. So even after getting the new update, users of older Pixel devices will not be able to download and use any live wallpapers from the app.
To access such live wallpapers, users of older Pixel devices will need to rely on third-party apps. Such wallpapers can also be got from other sources on the internet. You can as well check out our list of the top 10 best wallpaper Android apps in this article.
