Google Wallpapers now has two entirely new categories

Another good reason for non-Pixel owners to be jealous when the device was released last year was the excellent wallpaper picker that was baked into the exclusive launcher. That jealousy thankfully evaporated when Google released the standalone Wallpapers app, and made it available for all Android phones through the Play Store.
