  9. Allow the app a few seconds to check your phone number. Tap Retry next to Status if it still can’t verify after a few minutes.
  10. When verification is complete, the Status will change to Connected, indicating that RCS is activated.

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.
