Samsung Clock overlap issue

Google introduced the AI Wallpaper feature with the Pixel 8 series. The same functionality is also available in Samsung’s Galaxy S24 series thanks to Genini Nano. Now, Google is preparing to make AI-generated wallpapers sharable with Android 15.

Pixel’s ability to create AI-generated wallpapers is quite popular among users. Currently, the feature only allows users to generate stunning wallpapers and apply on the home screen and lock screen. Sharing with someone presently requires to be saved as a screenshot.

Threads user @the_husbandalorian discovered interesting evidence in the latest Beta. The company is working on a new option in Android 15 to share AI-generated wallpapers. A new share button is added on the preview screen in the wallpaper picker interface.

The preview will display how the wallpaper will be applied to your phone’s home or lock screen. The pencil button will allow you to refine the prompt used to create the wallpaper. Share button is all you need to share AI-generated wallpaper with others.

At present, the ability to share AI-generated wallpaper is broken. It suggests the feature is still under development and requires additional work. The next Beta might make it functional for Beta users, and we guess public availability with a Stable rollout.
