You may have seen the Android 14’s wonderful Emoji Wallpaper feature. No doubt, this is a feature exclusive to Google’s Pixel and smartphones that run stock Android. Well, here’s a quick and easy way to download and install Android 14 Emoji Wallpaper on your Samsung smartphone.
How to download and install Android 14 Emoji Wallpaper on a Samsung smartphone?

Find out both downloaded APK files in your phone’s internal storage and proceed with a normal installation. You may be required to allow permission for app installation outside the Play Store, do it. Install both files in sequence, and ensure the Wallpapers app gets installed at last.
Phone restart is not necessary post-APK installation, but it may improve usability.
Now, you need to access the Wallpapers app from the App Drawer of your Galaxy smartphone. In the directory, you should get a light Green colored section flaunting emojis, tap on it. Once done, you will get the same options Google showcased at the time of Android 14 Emoji Wallpaper introduction.
Using the Gear icon, you can expand customization settings to generate your favorite emoji wallpaper. There’s a Randomize toggle, which picks random emojis, patterns, size and colors and allows you to set it up on Home or Lock screen without customization at your end. However, you can create your own as well.
Try this hack out and let us know about your experiences.
During testing on my Galaxy S22 Ultra running the One UI 5.1 (Android 13), both apps were installed easily. I was able to use the Wallpapers app and create both Randomized and custom Emoji Wallpaper. Meanwhile, the Preview function is broken and the Emoji wallpaper is not interactive like the Pixel 7 Pro.
