    Can a 3rd party app change the new Start background? Like how an app can take control of the lock screen in WP8?

    How do you mean.? Change background images periodically.?
    No word on that being present in the 8.1 update.
    A good thing too imo, because it only takes a minute of thought to know its a bad idea. Makes it hard to get used to the home screen and not sure how random images are going to help since I know I'll be carefully picking mine. But, not to say you won't like it. Probably add it later but its not there yet as far as I know.

    Random, preset, images, colors, you name it, anything is possible with an API, I didn't have a slideshow in mind, just a color picker to easily change the tile colors (so you're not limited to stock colors and images only)
