Good Old Horizon Live Wallpaper is now part of Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro

Pixel phones offer a wide range of static and live wallpapers. While each Pixel phone comes with its own set of exclusive stock wallpapers, there is also a collection of common wallpapers that can be found across all Google Pixel phones.

When discussing common wallpapers, it’s worth mentioning the Live wallpaper called ‘Horizon,’ which was included in most Pixel phones released before the Pixel 6a. However, the Horizon live wallpaper was missing from the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. This live wallpaper was previously featured as part of the Living Universe collection in the default Pixel Wallpapers app.

Why are we talking about the Horizon Live Wallpaper now? Well, the old Horizon Live Wallpaper is now finally available on the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, almost a year after the devices were launched. The Horizon Wallpaper was originally introduced back in 2016 with the launch of the original Pixel phone.

The Horizon Live Wallpaper is particularly impressive due to its unique live theme. This captivating wallpaper dynamically changes based on the battery percentage of the device. When the device is charging the sun rises and lowers when the device is discharging. The effect looks cool.

If you are someone who appreciates these types of transitional effects in live wallpapers and you own a Pixel 7 series device, you can now enjoy the Horizon live wallpaper on your Pixel phone.

The availability of the Horizon live wallpaper on the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro was first reported by 9to5Google. And the majority of users already received the old wallpaper in the Living Universe collection. If you own a Pixel 7 or Pixel 7 Pro, you can explore the Wallpapers app to check if the Horizon wallpaper is available.

We cannot confirm whether the Horizon live wallpaper will be available on the upcoming Pixel 8 series. However, in my opinion, it should be available. Speaking of the Pixel 8 series and wallpapers, the Pixel 8 stock wallpapers were leaked months before the device’s launch. You can get these stock wallpapers on this page.
