Since you spend a whole lot of time looking at your Android homescreen, you might as well have something refreshing to look at. If you own a Chromecast and love the transitioning wallpapers that light up your TV, you can do the same with your Android device as well.

With the help of an app called Smart Wallpaper, you can not only enjoy a refreshing scene, but also use specific wallpapers to know which network you are connected to, what day of the week it is, and so much more.

Step 1: Download a bunch of background images

While it would be lovely to have the app automatically download beautiful wallpapers automatically like the Chromecast, you need to have images pre-downloaded for this app. You can always use your own images as wallpaper, but here are a few fantastic ones for you to add to your arsenal:

Step 3: Set the conditions for automatic wallpapers

The first time you launch the app, it will greet you with a quick guide and then head you over to the main screen. Next to each of the conditions set for wallpapers, you will see the “Select” option that allows you to choose a specific wallpaper for the condition.

If you are running Android 6.0 Marshmallow or higher, you will be prompted to grant the app additional permissions. If you see a similar screen as shown below, tap on the yellow part of the screen and hit “Allow” to grant the Smart Wallpaper app the required permission.

Under each category such as “Weekdays” or “WiFi network”, you can set up wallpapers for sub-categories such as a specific day of the week or a particular Wi-Fi network. If you too have learned how to automatically change wallpaper on Android, do share your experience with the app in the comments section below.
