You must have tried those various 3D Live Wallpaper apps available on Play Store. They surely add a stunning effect to your mobiles home screen. But as always every good thing has its own dark side, these apps too have them. You have to rely only on the wallpapers that these apps provide. You cannot set your own photos as 3D Live Wallpaper on your phones home screen. But now with a recently launched app called ‘Depth Photo 3D Live Wallpaper’ all this is easily possible. With this app you can set your own clicked photos as 3D Live Wallpaper on your Android devices. The main benefit of this app is that you do not need your phone to have a root access.
One thing you must note that this procedure can be possible only if you have the default Google Camera app which is available in the Nexus line up of Smartphones. This new camera app comes with a Lens blur option which can be easily customized in order to deliver us the best when it comes to photo effects. Once you click a photo, you need to just slide the phone screen in the upward direction. By doing that, the app immediately creates not one, but two pieces of information. The first photo is taken when the shutter button is pressed, while the second one is taken when you sweep the phone screen in the upward motion. This creates the 3D map of every pixel automatically for the initial photo. So that’s how we are actually getting to new live wallpaper which applies a 3D parallax effect to your photo and uses your device’s sensors to change the vantage point as you move. Such kind of feature was initially available on the Apple devices having iOS 7.

Now download & install ‘Depth Photo 3D Live Wallpaper’ app from Play Store on your phone.
