Google Photos update will make your Chromebooks feel more personal


Wallpapers are a quick and simple way of personalizing your computer, but more often than not, you’ll need to find these wallpapers yourself if the default/included options aren’t to your liking.

For those who love using their photos as their wallpapers, then you might be interested to learn that Google seems to be working on an update to Google Photos to give it better integration with ChromeOS. With this update, users will be able to sync and pull their photos directly from Google Photos and use it as the wallpapers on their Chromebooks.

This feature isn’t live yet but it is expected to make its way onto devices next month. Once this update is live, users will be able to use their own personal photos as wallpapers and set it so that it changes automatically everyday. According to Google:

“You can also see your favorite pictures sway in the breeze or gently float across your screen using one of the new screensaver photo frames.”

While it feels kind of like a novel feature, it’s a quality of life improvement for users who are looking for deeper levels of personalization without them having to do too much work. Like we said, this change will be coming in an update next month, so for those of you who like to use family photos or photos of your pets as your wallpaper, this might be a feature you can look forward to.
