One UI 6.0 Live Wallpapers

Samsung One UI 6.0 could finally allow users to set separate live wallpaper on the home screen and lock screen. The different wallpaper selection feature is already available for static wallpapers, and Google is reportedly testing the ability for the new Android 14 OS.

Way back in 2009, the Android OS started to support the live wallpapers feature and kept the same ability until the last stable Android version. Samsung also allows users to use live wallpapers on Galaxy devices using the Wonderland module of the Good Lock customization suite.

Similar to Android, Good Lock’s Wonderland is capable of applying live wallpaper on either the “home screen” or “Home screen and lock screen.” There’s no choice of picking up the live wallpaper for only the “lock screen” that Samsung could be finally bringing with the One UI 6.0.

According to XDA, Android, 13 QPR2 includes several code changes, which prepare for enabling an “independent lock screen live wallpaper” feature. One code change adds a new method to Android’s WallpaperManager class called setWallpaperComponentWithFlags().

System apps that hold the SET_WALLPAPER_COMPONENT permission, such as Android’s Live Wallpaper Picker app, can use this method to “set the live wallpaper [component] for the given screen(s)”, such as the home screen, lock screen, or both screens.

Do note that the feature is not available in Android 14’s Developer Preview build, as the company may have reserved it for the public beta program. As soon as the testing phase concludes, Android will gain the separate lock screen live wallpaper feature through a firmware update.

In addition, Google is bringing a new volume control panel with Android 14, which is inspired by the One UI. The upcoming OS also brings a new Emoji Wallpaper generator feature, which we want in Samsung’s Android 14 update for Galaxy fans.
