Google just introduced Live Cases for the Nexus smartphones. While they might seem like regular cases on the outside, each case can be thoroughly customized. Using Near field communication (NFC) , the case can push an animated wallpaper to your phone as well. A separate button on the back will also trigger a shortcut of your choosing. The Nexus Live Cases, available for LG Google Nexus 5X, Motorola Google Nexus 6, and Huawei Google Nexus 6P users can customise their own cases via the Google Store.
The Nexus Live Cases cost just $35 and the patterns and effects are only limited by the user’s sense of style. The simplest way to create an original case is to choose a favorite photo or a geographical location via Google Maps. Once selected tonal or patterned effects can be applied and overlaid and the finishing touch is a matching ‘live’ wallpaper for the handset’s screen to tie everything together. A shortcut button is incorporated into the case and you can customise it to open an app of your choosing when pressed.
Showcase a shot of your family, dog, or any other fave photo. Just upload a pic to the site, choose a style, and you’re done. Snap on your case to see your home screen turn into a slideshow of poses that you handpicked from Google Photos. To add more shots to your wallpaper, simply tap the shortcut button on the back of your case to launch your camera. The case will come bundled with a custom, animated wallpaper that will be related to the background you chose for the case.
