    However, what I did want to show you is the lock screen.
    Let's go back to lock screen normal thing we just set. Swipe it to unlock. Press and hold. Hopefully, your finger works better on your phone than mine works on mine and home and lock screens. Now with only lock screens we can still set the bubbles effect. This wallpaper will be applied to the lock and the home screen.

    You can also download some wallpaper app from the Google Play Store and a number of other sites as well.
    However, these types of live moving images do drain your battery a little bit faster.
