Google has an odd quiz called the #myAndroid Taste Test that will choose your wallpaper, launcher, icon pack, and more for you

In the age-old comparison between Android and iOS, one of the biggest talking points for Google's mobile OS is the level of customization it offers. No matter what Android phone you buy, you can make it look like your very own through different launchers, widgets, icons, and much more. To capitalize on this, Google has released a strange quiz of sorts that aims to curate homescreens for users.

Official Google Wallpapers app hits the Play Store, runs on non-Google devices too

A feature that we first associated with the Pixel Launcher was the wallpaper picker. And since the Pixel Launcher is exclusive to Pixel phones, you might have thought the same would go for its wallpaper feature. Well, in that case, you would be wrong. Google has broken it off into an app called Wallpapers and it is now in the Play Store, available for download on all manner of non-Pixel, non-Nexus devices.

[Update: Winners] Like Wallpapers? We Have 50 Backdrops Pro Codes To Give Away

A couple of weeks ago, Google gave developers a way to offer promo codes for their apps. Shortly after, we teamed up with the developer of LocalCast to hand out 50 promo codes for the premium version of the app, which was a great success. Today, we’re teaming up with the dev behind Backdrops, a popular wallpaper app, to give out 50 codes for Backdrops Pro. Let’s go.

First off, if you haven’t tried Backdrops, I feel bad for you, son. It’s essentially a premier way to find new wallpapers on Android, and the majority of the content there is exclusive so you won’t get it anywhere else.

The Google Store Celebrates Seven Years Since The Announcement Of The Original Android Phone With Some Themed Wallpapers

Android has more birthdays than a cheapskate in an Applebees. November 5th, 2007 is often given as one option, because that's the day that Google announced the development of the platform itself. October 22nd, 2008 is another one, the day that the HTC's G1 phone was first released by T-Mobile. But for some reason, the Google Store team is choosing to pin down today, September 23rd as Android's "seventh birthday." On this day in 2008 Google and T-Mobile announced the availability of the G1 for the following month. That's also the day that the Android 1.0 SDK was first available for public download.

GoPro App Updated To Version 2.4 With Automatic WiFi Connection, A New User Interface, And More

Even after years on the market and innumerable would-be competitors, GoPro remains the standard for "action cameras." A big part of that is the excellent smartphone integration that GoPro's devices have maintained, and today the official Android app gets a little better in a lot of small ways. The most obvious is the new user interface, which is visible on Android 4.0 and above. The all-black UI keeps its focus on minimalism and utility, but gets rid of some of the gradients of the former interface.
