Google is adding a new type of wallpaper and screensaver to Chrome OS. The new ‘time of the day’ wallpapers will change according to the time of the day.
Here are the Chromium flags that we spotted today:
Time of Day Wallpaper: Enables Time of Day Wallpaper feature on supported devices.
Time of Day Screen Saver: Enables Time of Day Screen Saver feature on supported devices. Requires. Time Of Day Wallpaper feature to be enabled.
Time of the day wallpapers and screensavers
The concept of time-of-the-day wallpapers is not new. Apple has Dynamic Wallpapers for macOS. Android also has a set of live wallpapers that change based on the time of the day.
Will Google deliver something different? We should wait and see. For now, the only additional information we could dig up is this: apart from the existing light theme and the dark theme, wallpapers will get ‘morning mode’ and ‘late afternoon mode’.
It might take a few more days for this change to show up in the Canary channel of Chrome OS. Stay tuned to Chrome Story to see these new wallpapers in action.
