Google Wallpapers now offers new categories, more new wallpapers

Google Wallpapers is not one of Google’s most popular Android apps, but the company is certainly committed to making it better and more useful. Not long after the app was updated with new wallpapers (plus UI enhancements and bug fixes), it’s been discovered that it now contains two completely new wallpaper categories: Art, and Solid Colors.

Art mostly includes cool patterns and digital art, while Solid Colors is – yep, you’ve guessed it – the place to go if you just need simple, solid color wallpapers. The addition of these new categories isn’t mentioned in any change log. Nevertheless, …

There was supposed to be 18 of them, but the archive containing the high-res download fails to unzip two files (CRC won’t check out). No biggie, as 16 is still plenty to work with!
