This morning, HTC has pushed out the first update to their Dot View case for their One for Windows on Verizon. The app update refreshes the Dot View configurations under settings and brings with it three new options. The update matches the Android version, which itself was updated in July to deliver the same three new options.

Starting with this update, users can now choose a wallpaper to be displayed when the Dot View case is enabled. As expected, the wallpaper is pixelated to match the Dot View design. Users can choose up to 19 different wallpapers, or they can add their own to the mix.
