If you're sick of looking at the same old boring wallpapers on your device, you can jazz things up by making your phone look like a Pixel 5 with these live wallpapers.

As reported by XDA, you can now download the Pixel 5 live wallpapers and install them on any Android device. Which means you can make your phone look like a Pixel 5 to some degree. Even if you aren't actually changing its physical appearance beyond adding the wallpapers that come from one of Google's latest smartphones.

All that being said, there are just two live wallpapers that you can actually apply right now.

Download the Pixel 5 live wallpapers through an app

To get these wallpapers for yourself, you'll need to essentially grab them from an app. But this isn't an app you can grab from the Play Store.

Rather this is an APK file that you'll have to install on your device. You can get that APK from this link here, which comes from the XDA forums. Worth noting though is that there is a specific set of instructions you need to follow if you want things to go smoothly.

For starters you need to uninstall any previous versions of the Pixel Live Wallpapers APK. As it will conflict with the one that was ported over from the Pixel 5.

Once you've done that, then your next step is to download the new APK from the download link above. Before you can install the APK though you will likely need a file manager of some sort. According to the forum post you will need this to install the APK.

And that's about it. From here you should just be able to select the wallpapers you want. Worth noting is that there are more than just live wallpapers included. There's also a set of still wallpapers from the device.

This should work on any device running on Android 7.0 or later

The only requirement that there seems to be, aside from the installation instructions, is that your device be running on at least Android 7.0 Nougat.

That's most Android devices these days. So it shouldn't be much of a stretch to say just about any Android users can get their hands on these wallpapers. They may look the best on certain phones though. Such as devices with a similar size display.

Pixel 5 wallpapers aren't quite the same as the Pixel 5, but it's still a step in that direction. And who knows. Maybe you'll love the wallpapers so much that you actually buy a Pixel 5.
