Last year Google announced live cases — a customizable case that you can create pretty much however you’d like with photos, designs, and even maps. These were originally available only for the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, but as we saw a couple of weeks ago, Google is also bringing these to the new Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones.

The best gifts for Android users

Pixel devices are set to start shipping in just a few days (hype!) and now Google’s Live Cases are finally available for order on Google’s new, very well-received smartphones.

With the Pixel and Pixel XL, Google has introduced some new options for Live Cases. Just like before users can create custom designs based on places or photos, but now you can also select from a collection of 30 custom “Artwork” designs.

These designs are based on art and photography from artists such as Justin Maller, Chris Hadfield, and Gray Malin, as well as collaborations such as FAILE and Friends With You.

Live Cases run $40 a piece for all models. If you’re ordering a case for your Pixel or Pixel XL, the case will ship in about 2-3 weeks.
