Yes, it's nice right? But… How to put a video as wallpaper on my mobile? Very easy! Here you will learn how to do it.

Most Android phones and iPhones support this feature; The ways to do this are different and it will depend on the model you have. In the case of Galaxy S10 mobiles, they include this option in the equipment holder.



Which allows you to put a video as a background. Android phones, such as Google Pixel 3, need a third party app to do this. If you own an iPhone, having a video in the background is a long version of Live Photo, i.e. moving photos, and works with iPhones that use 3D touch.
