About this app

Muzei is a live wallpaper that gently refreshes your home screen each day with famous works of art. It also recedes into the background, blurring and dimming artwork to keep your icons and widgets in the spotlight. Simply double touch the wallpaper or open the Muzei app to enjoy and explore the artwork in its full glory.

Alternatively, you can choose your favorite photos from your own gallery or other apps to use on your home screen. To keep your wallpaper fresh, Muzei will rotate through your favorite photos every few hours.

Finally, Muzei is developer-friendly. All the code is available at http://code.muzei.co and Muzei even offers a simple API that allows you to build your own wallpaper source. For API details, visit http://api.muzei.co.

If you use a third party Legacy Source, you must disable Battery Optimizations on that app to allow it to continue to load artwork. See https://medium.com/muzei/muzei-3-0-and-legacy-sources-8261979e2264 for more details.

Made by Roman Nurik and Ian Lake, along with contributions from many in the Android community. Muzei is a transliteration of the Russian word музей, which means “museum.”

Featured artwork in Muzei is curated daily by our small staff and made possible thanks to WikiArt.org and its contributors.

I've used this app almost two weeks. I have very much enjoyed it although, the first couple of days it did not change out my wallpaper as scheduled. That seems to have resolved now and is changing every 24 hours as set. One major issue remains though. I have the source set to use my photos. The app does not find all of my photos. It seems there is no rhyme or reason as to which photos it sees, as some are older and some are newer. Still, an amazing app, highly recommended!

Honestly I love this app. The blurred background is awesome And the ability to only put it into view when wanted makes it a less noisy screen to look at. I adore it with the new Android 12 auto color match for the icons, but I wish I could set the time for the wallpaper to change. Like once a day or once every 12 hours or something. They change way too fast. Easily 5 stars If I could control the timing!!

Muzei already lets you control how frequently the Auto Advance happens via the timer icon in the upper right of the Sources screen. Muzei also integrates with Tasker to allow for triggering the wallpaper change based on any condition you want.

I'm enjoying the app, and it works for the most part. The only thing that's kind of a downfall is that the scrolling lags/jumps sometimes, particularly when the phone has just turned on from lock screen. (New phone btw, so not CPU issue.) Unless I wait for a couple of seconds, if I scroll from one panel to the next, the background doesn't scroll with the icons, then jumps to the next position. There's also a jump sometimes when I scroll back to the home/main panel, a little glitch as it orients. Other than the scrolling glitches, nice app.
