Background images for Live Tiles coming to a Windows Phone near you soon

Windows Phone background images

While I am not a fan of the rumour mill, this one has got me excited. Background images have always floated my boat, but have you seen a background image on Windows Phone’s home screen? It looks absolutely fabulous! A chosen background image actually skins all Live Tiles on the home. I gather that this feature, alongside others, is coming with Windows Phone 8.1.

This also means that if you want your Tiles a certain colour but that is not available as an option, you can create or download an image of that colour, and, presto!

Looking forward to this!

    Looking forward to it too. Especially since its going to be optional. If I don’t like it, I’ll just turn it off. Can’t understand why a lot of techies (in forums I’ve read) don’t seem to want it.

    Options are always welcome in my opinion.
