Google has today announced a new line of cases for Nexus devices called “live cases”. These new cases feature a highly customizable design where you can add your own photos, designs, or locations to the case to create something unique and personal. Pricing for these cases lands at $35 regardless of the device or design you go for. You can get it for the Nexus 6P, Nexus 6, and Nexus 5X. Each case comes with a custom live wallpaper that goes with the design. The case also features a “smart button” on the back which can open a designated application on your device.
If you’re interested in picking one of these cases up for yourself, head over to google.com/livecase to design it!
Photos Live Case, designed with your favorite photo
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.
Places Live Case, styled with your happy place
Fashion your phone with a stylized map of your favorite location from around the world – whether it’s your dream vacation destination or hometown. Your live wallpaper will show a map of your whereabouts as you go about your day. With a tap of the shortcut button, the app will show you what’s nearby on Google Maps.
