We used to have that option a couple of beta builds back. Now It's just homescreen or homescreen + lockscreen.

The daily slideshow settings.

Actually I only get home screen option, even if it's not selected the wallpaper on lockscreen doesn't change

I still see Home screen & Lock screen as well as Home screen only as the two options. Which version do you have?

New Contributor

Version 5.4.1.51380

See the screens 

"Solo schermata Home" means "Home screen only"

I am on V 5.4.1.51375 in the US, Odd that yours is missing that option. Should be parity across regions I would think.

New Contributor

I also had that option, I have no idea why it no longer appears

New Contributor

Ok I got it, the lockscreen option is no longer available for Xiaomi and some other brand

Frequent Contributor

Does the lockscreen option appear for you in the public version of the app?

Contributor

Instead of having two radio boxes, one for "Home Screen" and one for "Home and Lock Screen", we could just have two check boxes, one for Home and one for Lock, so can choose whatever fits us!!!

That would also work haha.

Maybe in the upcoming launcher revamp. Havent seen anything in the alpha though.

This is still something I'd love to have. I almost never change my home screen background because it's hard to find one that works well with my icons, but I'd love to change the lock screen automatically every day.

It used to be available on the old versions.

Frequent Contributor

Dang, Was hoping it would be on Pixel 5

Microsoft

Hi, thanks for your feedback. Your device is pixel 5, right? Could you please provide us a screenshot of the options for a better understanding?

Frequent Contributor

@Ann_Yao_680  Regarding your original comment to me. It is not an option, It was removed over a year ago. And I do have a Pixel 5. I also cant provide a screenshot because of how Android 11 is interacting with the launcher to use screenshot. But you can easily see what I am talking about on your end. Launcher settings>Wallpaper>Choose A New Wallpaper>Bing

Hit the "Daily Slideshow" toggle. There you will see two options "Home And Lock Screen" and "Home Screen Only" Used to be a 3rd option for "Lock Screen Only"

Microsoft

Hi, thanks for your clarifying. It's crystal now. It turns out a new design. The option is removed from launcher. But we already know your suggestion and recorded it to see what we can do to improve the experience for you.
