Please note that this is limited to using your current wallpaper. This is an Android limitation, and is for security reasons. Apps cannot start live wallpapers that are not part of the same package, because live wallpapers are technically background services.
Each individual live wallpaper can be made compatible with daydreams by its own developer. I plan to do this with the Cypher Cove ones soon. Thanks for your patience.
Now, there is an easier way simply to launch Daydream, right from your home screen, no matter if you are docked, charging, or neither. Just press the icon, and Daydream will start.
I have heard a few people ask for such a shortcut, so I made this; if you have any suggestions or problems to report, please email me. Also, this is ad-free and requires no permissions.
Gently awaken to your favorite medley. Or violently rouse yourself from deep slumber with death metal. The choice is yours!
