LG G6 Wallpaper

The LG G6 was announced today at Mobile World Congress featuring a 5.7-inch display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The handset’s abnormally tall screen makes it easier to use two applications at the same time on top of each other but it also makes for unusually thin wallpapers.

Google’s new ‘Wallpaper Art’ app puts beautiful artwork on your Chromebook

Google has many side initiatives, and one of them is the Cultural Institute that digitizes works of art from museums and archives around the world and puts them online.

Today, their Art Project released an app for Chrome OS that updates the wallpaper of your device to a different piece of art from their collection every day. Expect “masterpieces ranging from Van Gogh and Monet, all the way to contemporary works from street artists around the world,” according to Chrome evangelist François Beaufort in announcement post. If today’s piece doesn’t jive with your artistic taste, you can skip to the next wallpaper in the app.

The Chrome app is very similar to the Muzei Live Wallpaper app by Googler Roman Nurik that also changes the wallpaper on your phone and Android Wear watch face to a work of art. Another app that features work from the Google Art Project is the Street Art watch face for Android Wear. You can download the Google Wallpaper art app from the Chrome web store.

Chrome OS updated to version 40 w/ new wallpaper features, quick Emoji access

Google has this morning pushed out an update for the stable channel of Chrome OS, and as is usual, it packs a huge number of changes. But also as usual, most of these changes are under-the-hood tweaks and there are often just a few small notable changes that the end-user might notice. This update brings a new default wallpaper that sports Material Design, automatic syncing of wallpapers between devices, and a new “Emoji palette” that will allow users to quickly access Emoji.

Some highlights of these changes are:

  • The default wallpaper has been updated to Material Design
  • Custom wallpapers are now synced across your devices
  • Emoji palette allows users to quickly access emoji

The update, specifically numbered version 40, is being pushed out as we speak. You can likely just give your Chromebook or other Chrome OS device a reboot within the next few hours to receive the update. To read more about the update (in case you maybe want to dig through the countless bug fixes), head over to Google’s Chrome Releases Blog.
