Google Pixel owners can compete to have their images shown as Chromecast backgrounds
Who hasn’t spent a few minutes watching Chromecast’s rotation of bliss-inducing, long exposure landscape photography? What better buffer is there between the end of a 30 Rock Netflix marathon and a return to reality than a never-ending loop of HDR cityscapes and peaceful beach sunsets? None better, and now regular folk like us can have our photos considered for inclusion in Chromecast’s screen saver repertoire, provided you own a Google Pixel or Pixel XL.
If you’re interested in that kind of fame and glory, you can submit photos taken with your Pixel phone to Google’s attention by posting them to Twitter, Instagram or Google+ and tagging it #teampixel. The company is looking for images that fit the established Chromecast background aesthetic, so landscape orientation is recommended, as are landscapes, architecture, wildlife and abstract subjects. Portraits and images with logos are discouraged, extreme HDR treatment optional.
