This used to work so well, but it seems like every time I pick up my phone there is a new Bing image. It's supposed to be today's Bing picture, so it shouldn't change more than once per day (which is what I have it set to).

Hey Carolyn. I hope you're well. I had the same problem. This morning I turned off the "Daily Slides how" switch, then turned it back on. Voilá! Daily wallpaper re-enabled.

@RG_Durishin I tried that yesterday, but it was still happening. It's also not that the Bing wallpaper has disappeared. It's just changing every hour or so (total guesstimate) instead of once daily, and in my settings it says it is set to just change once daily.

I would back up and reset the launcher.

@RG_Durishin Tried that this morning; it didn't work. I backed up everything, reset Launcher, restored everything EXCEPT the wallpaper settings, and then set the wallpaper to Bing, changing once a day. It just changed again. It's 2 hours since I did the above, so it might have changed an hour ago also and I didn't notice then.

@caresrg @RG_Durishin @Ann_Yao_680 The wallpaper keeps reverting to an old one for me. Every day I have to activate it again to get the new image. I have it set for both home screen and lock screen.

 

Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018)

Android 9

Microsoft Launcher 6.2.200803.90812

@Ann_Yao_680 The wallpaper is still changing to and earlier day in 6.2.200803.90819.
It really isn't working. I wasn't paying close attention to settings - does anyone know if it broke when they added the choice of how often it should change? It used to be so reliable, changing at midnight every night.
It would be awfully nice if this got fixed before the Surface Duo release. Just sayin'.
@caresrg @Ann_Yao_680 This seems to be working as expected for me for the last few days. I am on version 6.2.200803.90831.
That is awesome, but the timing is hilarious. I'm now using my new Surface Duo, and the version of Launcher installed on it doesn't offer a daily setting at all. :loudly_crying_face:

Hoping for one soon.
I am on 200803.90831 and the Daily Wallpaper is FINALLY Behaving - Daily. Congrats @Carolyn Gordon on your Duo. I think I am going to V60 Dual-Screen Case it for the rest of the year and go for Duo Gen 2.
