Refresh Wallpaper Every 10 Seconds – Coming Soon to Your Chromebook

Your Chromebook can automatically change the wallpaper daily. You will soon be able to change wallpapers every 10 seconds.

Wallpaper Auto-refresh

Chrome OS allows you to pick a wallpaper category and let it automatically change the wallpaper every day. What if you want to change faster? Now that Google is working on an option to pick Google Photos as a wallpaper category, I would love to set an album as my wallpaper and change the wallpaper every minute or so.

With the new Personalization Hub, Google is beginning to add such a feature. A recent code change request spotted on the Chromium repository talks about an option to change the wallpaper every 10 seconds.

I would need more control on how frequent the wallpaper refresh is, but this is a good start. Here is the experimental flag the team has added to Chrome OS.

Enable shortened wallpaper daily refresh interval for manual testing: Allows developers to see a new wallpaper once every ten seconds rather than once per day when using the daily refresh feature.

I wouldn’t need my wallpaper changing every 10 seconds, at least with the current set of wallpapers. However, I might need this feature when the Google Photos integration lands.

What about you? Does this feature make you happy? Let me know in the comments section below.
