Download the Google Pixel 8 wallpapers here
Google’s Pixel phones have always had great wallpapers. The first few generations amazed us with live wallpapers designed in collaboration with studios such as B-Reel and ustwo. Lately, Google has released some great minimalistic static wallpapers designed in collaboration with various artists. Now, thanks to a source inside Google, we’re able to share the Pixel 8 wallpapers.
These wallpapers were made to match the wide variety of colors available for the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. These colors include Obsidian, Hazel, Rose, Porcelain, and Bay. For the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, Google has once again decided to task Andrew Zuckerman with creating its wallpapers; the theme is “Minerals.”

First things first, let’s tell you how things work around here. It’s important to remember that the image previews below have been compressed and optimized for improved website performance. It’s not a good idea to save them directly, as their quality will be degraded. You can click the download button below the previews to download the full-resolution files instead.
How to set the Pixel 8 wallpapers on other devices
Do you need help setting up your new Google Pixel 8 series wallpapers? Let’s help you figure it out. Again, it’s important to remember that the previews you see above are compressed. Click on the download button above to get the full-resolution images.
You can either download them straight to your phone, or use another device and then transfer the wallpapers to the phone you’ll set them on. I like to use Google Drive to transfer files between devices, but you can use a physical cable, send yourself an email, etc.
Once the images are stored on your device, follow the steps below to set them as wallpapers. Keep in mind that the instructions may be a bit different depending on your device and Android version.
