If there's one thing we love about the Android operating system, it's the ability we have to customize almost everything, and while changing the wallpaper has been common on cell phones for a long time, you may not know that you can create wallpaper of Your mobile screen changes automatically according to the time of day.

How to change the wallpaper automatically?

To make the wallpaper change automatically based on the time of day, we will use some applications that are perfect for this task. Each has its own particularity and the best thing is that you can get them for free from the Google Play Store.

Precise Weather – YoWindow

This app allows us to configure an animated wallpaper that will be displayed day or night based on what time we are. We can also see rain or snow falling to our bottom if this meteorological phenomenon occurs in the place where we are. An interesting option of this app is that we can advance up to 8 days into the future to know how the weather will be in the following days.

In its free version it has several very nice scenarios, although if we want something other than those already available, we have to make a single payment for the application.

To use it is simple, we just have to download it from the following link, install it, choose the wallpaper we like best and give permission to our location so that it can correctly predict the weather.

Change background

This application offers us a more interesting option and that is that we can add photos and images from our gallery. We install the app, go to the section Album and there we select the folder or images we want to appear on our background. So, let's get into the option Change and there we can choose to have the fund changed every certain number of minutes, hours or days. We can also choose an exact day and time when we want the wallpaper to change.

Currently we can't choose videos, but to place a video in the background we have this option.


Finally we have Tapet, One of the Whatsapp more complete of its kind, with it we can choose from a large number of different designs for our wallpaper and we can also add personal images so that they are taken into account when changing.

The time interval of each background is editable, we just have to enter the app, go up Settings and click options. There we can enter intervals of minutes, hours, days and even weeks for each transition.
