How to Set a Galaxy S9-style Video Wallpaper on Galaxy S8
Most of us usually tend to think of the lock screen and the home screen as being quite unimportant. It’s obvious that we don’t take in consideration the number of times we glance at the lock screen. From catching the gist of a new message to quickly checking the time or a missed call, the screen actually acts as the gateway to all the important things on your device.
Since we always strive for individuality in life, nowhere should we strive for it more than in our phones, including their home screen. Therefore, if you are the owner of a Samsung Galaxy S8 handset, then you should know about the new option of setting a video as their lock screen wallpaper. The feature first appeared on the Samsung Galaxy S9 smartphone, but it is now available on your handset too, thanks to the latest June security patch.
If you don’t like anything that was offered in Samsung Themes store up to now, then there are quite a few great places to find yourself a new wallpaper, yet a Video Wallpaper truly rocks.
And besides that, I can assure you that setting a video as a wallpaper is not at all complicated; in fact, I am talking about the very same process as setting a picture as the wallpaper. All you have to do is to select the video you have in mind, click on the three-dot settings menu in the top-right corner, and then select “Set as wallpaper.”
And if you don’t want to like any of your own videos, you can select one from Samsung via the Samsung Themes app. Now, the “Wallpapers” section includes a new “Video Lockscreen” entry that you can use right away. Select it and even if there aren’t too many options now, I am sure that more will be added in the near future.
In the end, please note that you may set as wallpaper both downloaded or recorded videos only if playing-time is less than 15 seconds.
