Google on Thursday announced new “Live Cases” that it’s selling for Nexus devices, including the Nexus 6, Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X. The live cases can be built using two options, either photos or places, and cost $35 each.
These cases are similar to the Skrillex cases that launched last May and offer a similar one-touch function that lets users quickly launch an app by using a programmable shortcut button built right into the case.
If a customer picks a photo live case, he or she will upload the picture and then choose a specific style that goes with it. Then, once you’ve received the case and installed the custom live wallpaper, you’ll get a different companion image in the background each time you look at the display.
Opt for the Places live case, and you’ll be able to choose a specific spot on the map – like Manhattan, for example – stylize it for your tastes, and then see a live wallpaper with your current location that matches the case style.
