One of the sections that have always characterized Android has been customization. From Google Play it is possible to access an infinity of custom launchers, icon packs, wallpapers and, of course, animated wallpapers. The latter are precisely those that concern us today.
There are many animated wallpapers, so in this article we have compiled the best. Each of them is specialized in a type of animation and we have made sure not only that they are well rated, but that they work properly. First of all, it should be noted that animated wallpapers consume more battery than static backgrounds, so keep that in mind before installing one. With that said, we started.
We start with Chrooma, an old acquaintance in this world of animated wallpapers. Chrooma has 12 different shapes or patterns with various color palettes that change every time we return to the main screen or, if we configure it, when a certain time passes (between a minute and a week).
The shapes move as if they “breathe” at a rather slow speed, but from the application settings you can make them faster. The animations are at 60 frames per second and have a parallax effect, so if you move the phone the shapes move too. It is completely free and it has no ads or micropayments.

Minima is also a well-known application whose strong point is the minimalist animations (hence its name). As in Chrooma, the application has different patterns that move when we move the device, as well as the possibility of changing the color palette for those we like the most.
It is a very simple application to use and that offers many customization options. The free version It has some themes included and the option to change the colors, but if you want to unlock them all and access the themes online, it will be necessary to buy the Pro version for 1.09 euros.
