    Here is the store link to the glance background app, can you install it?

    Personally I found it some what hit and miss with the insider builds.

    (paste the last section not in blue into your browser)

    Glance background is now baked into the WM10 glance settings. It has been like that for a while now on 8.1 too. To get the WM10 version look for the sticky [APPS] in the WM10 threads.

    We can't select an custom image for glance background,the app under settings only allows to assign lock screen photo as glance background.

    The app is pretty much dead so I guess most of us are out of options.

    Have you tried this old trick of waiting at least two minutes and the store lets you download the app.I'm not sure but I heard that somewhere.Initially it will show that the app is unavailable but after some time it will let you download the app.

    I actually have the app, and for some reason, when I open Glance Background, it gives me "!Failed to initialize Glance" then closes each time.

    If someone can find some work around, that'd be awesome.

    Strange,you were able to install the app in a new flagship phone with latest OS whereas other users can't even download the app?

    Have you tried any workaround like switch off/on the glance background toggle under settings?
