Offering the chance to have your pictures “seen by millions across the globe,” Google is asking those interested to hashtag images with #teampixel on Instagram or Twitter. Besides the photo needing to have been shot on a Pixel, the company offers some tips:
- Suggested Content: Landscapes, Macro, Nature, Animals, Abstract, Life, Cities, Buildings, Textures
- No people, logos, watermarks or branding
- Landscape orientation works best
- Family friendly: these photos will be seen on millions of devices
Google will reach out to potential features through either Instagram or Twitter direct message with additional directions.
Backdrops on Chromecast usually rely on photos from Google+, satellite imagery of the planet, and art pieces. Those works feature attribution in the bottom right corner, so it’s likely that the same will be done with these Pixel images.
