What you need to know
- Microsoft recently released a Bing Wallpapers app for Android.
- The app allows you to set Bing's daily images as your wallpaper.
- Previously you had to use Microsoft Launcher to automatically change your wallpaper to Bing's images.
Microsoft recently launched the Bing Wallpapers app for Android, a new app that lets you bring Bing's daily images to your phone.
The app gives you access to the current Bing image, as well as an archive of daily images that Bing has used in the past. You can quickly set any of the available images as your home screen or lock screen wallpaper. There's also an automatic update option that allows the app to automatically swap your wallpaper to the daily image as it changes.
"Bing Wallpapers features a collection of beautiful images featured on the Bing homepage over the last 10 years," Microsoft says in the app's description. "Browse images, learn where they're from, and set them as your mobile wallpaper."
In the details of each image, you'll find more details about what it shows, along with where it was taken and who the photographer is. When browsing through past images, you can filter by the color you want, category, and locations. There's also a portion of the app that lets you choose from solid colors to set as your wallpaper.
Microsoft also includes a search bar at the top of the app that lets you quickly search Bing images on the web.
While Bing may lag far behind Google on the search front, one of its most unique features is the shifting high-quality image that hits its homepage every day. Previously, the only way to have your wallpaper automatically update to this image on your phone was to use Microsoft Launcher. The app's launch also follows the launch of a similar app for desktop PCs last month.
Bing Wallpapers lets you bring the daily Bing image to your Android phone and set them as your wallpaper.
