Since Google showcased the phone during its launch event earlier this month, the "Beach" live wallpaper on the Pixel 2 phones has garnered a lot of attention. Many wondered if they would be able to utilize this beautiful wallpaper on their Android device.
Fortunately for them, the new Pixel 2 wallpapers app recently surfaced on Reddit and XDA. However, many users reported that it was not 100% functional. This was caused by missing library files that were unavailable but it has since been resolved by a Reddit user. The solution to this issue was using some library files from the Google Earth application. The live wallpapers are now working with 100% functionality.
Originally, your phone or tablet needed to have Android 8.0 Oreo due to its minimum API targeting, but XDA Recognized Developer and Themer Pranav Pandey has created a working port of this software for older Android devices. There is Android 7.0+ and Android 6.0+ support but Android 6.0 has not been officially tested. You can grab it here
If you've been considering Google's latest flagship phones but have not placed your preorder, you can stop by a Verizon Wireless retail store for a hands on preview as of October 12, to see the "Beach" Live Wallpaper in action. Google also announced it will have pop up stores in Los Angeles and New York on October 19, also the release date of the phone, where the public can test out the Pixel 2, Pixelbook, Pixelbuds and a host of other accessories.
