Google wants to feature your photos as wallpapers on Android phones and Macs

Alongside the launch of the Pixel and Pixel XL last month, Google released a sweet new wallpaper app, simply and aptly named “Wallpapers”, which lets you spice up your Android devices with a hefty collection of curated backgrounds, spanning satellite images, landscapes, cityscapes, macro and abstract photography.

“Wallpapers” brings much of the same visual flare that has been gracing TVs and monitors connected with Chromecast and Google Fiber devices for some time now, but now Google is looking to expand its selection of featured photos by letting you participate in the process. In order to be considered for participation in the program, all you need to do is share your photos publicly on Google+. However, by joining the Google+ Create program, you can significantly increase your chances of becoming a contributor to the platform and getting your photos featured on the screens of millions of Android devices around the world. Google is also expanding the initiative to Macs via its new Featured Photos screensaver, meaning your photos may grace the screens of Apple computers as well.

Google is looking for creators who can provide themed collections of high-quality content and expand them weekly. If you think you fit this description, you can apply for the program on Google's oft-overlooked social network by following this link. If you don't feel like you fit the description, head over to Google Play instead, and download the “Wallpapers” app. It contains plenty of beautiful backgrounds that will keep your home and lock screens fresh for weeks to come, and by the looks of it, the collection will keep growing.
