How to Change Moto Z Wallpaper and Lock Screen Message

There’s a lot of stuff in Google’s Android operating system, but none of them are as important to the Android experience as the customization options. It’s up to users to decide how their Android powered smartphones look. Cleverly, Moto does not interfere with this choice. You decide how your Moto Z looks. You can choose full control through the launchers or decide to change the Moto Z wallpaper and lock screen message. This is seriously easy to do.

The Moto Z doesn’t use proprietary software or come pre-populated with a skin that runs on top of Google’s operating system. Instead, Moto’s preferred software customizations are built into the phone and updated via apps. Changing the Moto Z wallpaper works just like any other Android device that is mostly clean. As for the lock screen message, you’ll want to add one to give yourself a chance to recover if you misplace your device.

Here is how to change Moto Z wallpaper and lock screen message.

Let’s start by changing the Moto Z lock screen message. Again, having a neat lock screen message with an emergency contact can be the key to recovering your phone if it’s lost. Since this message can be anything, you don’t have to use it for this purpose. You can add a quote or funny message that makes you smile every time you see it.

Note that you don’t have to rely on the pictures you take or the wallpapers pre-installed on your device. Head to the Google Play Store for apps that will give you even more wallpapers. You can also download images from your favorite sites on the web by browsing and saving them via Google Chrome. While browsing the web, hold your finger on any image you want to save. For the best experience, you’ll want an appropriately sized photo. The Moto Z’s 5.5-inch Quad HD display can show a lot of detail.

After choosing a wallpaper, tap in the upper left corner of your screen.
