It’s unclear whether the Android 12 update for older Pixel phones will bring new backgrounds that help showcase Material You. Until that release, current Pixel phones are seeing a trio of new “Curated Culture” Pixel wallpapers.
The theme has yet to be explicitly stated, but today’s backgrounds were illustrated by artist KimiKimo (on Instagram).
- Take A Break: “Even the sun has to take time to rest after a long day. A gentle reminder for you to take a break.”
- Support: “If you are struggling with your mental health, it’s okay to ask for help.”
- Love Yo’Self: “Be kind to yourself. Hold your heart up high. Show yourself the unconditional love you deserve.”
This trio joins 24 other wallpapers for Pride Month, AAPI Heritage Month, Earth Day, International Women’s Day, Black History Month, International Friendship Day, International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, and Hispanic Heritage Month. These backgrounds are still not particularly optimized for the Pixel 4a, 4a 5G, or 5’s front-facing hole-punch camera.
All are available in the Wallpaper & Style app today for the Pixel 3 and newer (including on Android 12 Beta 5). Other device owners can set the new Pixel wallpapers from the Curated Culture collection above.
