I’ve posted about this a few times before. It’s been confirmed that live wallpapers cannot be used in android 13 either, although they were functional in 12 before development on that was stopped. They also worked in the first version of 11, but support was lost in subsequent updates. I wouldn’t have updated if I had known this beforehand. I have my phone rooted, which took a long time and was very frustrating, so it isn’t worth the trouble to reset and go back to the old update.
I understand that this type of thing is not the priority in development… But it does make the phone a lot less enjoyable to use. I would really appreciate if the team could look into why the live wallpaper picker is not only missing from the phone, but also doesn’t function if you install it yourself. I’ve tried. It just crashes.
It’s reaching the point where I’m looking into finding a different phone. I don’t want to give up repairability, but the inability to truly customize my phone is driving me up the wall.
