    Hello everyone!

    Just thought I would share with you how to get the Pixel 3 live wallpapers on your OnePlus.

    For those of you who do not know, the Pixel 3 has live wallpapers.
    Those are shown below:

    The wallpapers change according to the time of day, the notifications you receive, the touch on your screen, the music you play, ...
    Each wallpaper has its own behavior, but they are pretty cool to be honest.

    Now, how to install them.
    You will need:
    1. The Wallpaper application from Google (get it on Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.wallpaper).
      I'm not certain the application is actually required on OnePlus, I have not tested without...
      //EDIT: it seems to be working without the app for OP5T and OP6 !
    2. Download the following apk (links from xda-developers):
    3. Once the apk installed, open the Google Wallpapers application, and you will find the new wallpapers in the Live Wallpapers section.
    4. On my OnePlus 6 running Android Pie, I could then access the wallpapers from the normal OnePlus setting, zooming out from the home screen and selecting Wallpapers.
    I hope this guide helps people out, I found a few threads on the forum, but nothing grouped all the information in one place.

    Have fun!
    Peace

    Mine hasn't changed. I'm using the earth view.
    Battery is still rocking, and screen usage is the same...

    The earth view is really cool, tbh, gives a "iPhone XS" vibe, with OnePlus, so better :)
    It's a gadget, but I think it makes the phone more alive in a way...

    a live wallpaper always consumes more battery in comparison with a normal one

    I have followed the OP's instructions and successfully loaded live wall papers on my OP6. So far haven't noticed any battery drain..
    AVG SOT before/after- 6hrs-15min.
