    Yes we do! That looks fantastic! For me, such a simple looking and clean wallpaper like that makes the hole OS look so much better and modern than the black or white ones. I'm starting to be really worried about this feature not coming on WP8.1 because none of our credible sources are talking about this. All that is being mentioned are those fugly skinned tiles and let's be honest, those suck! They are ugly and make the OS less intuitive. This is what we want and this is what we need: an option to set or chose a clean and beautiful walpaper that isn't black or white!

    So clean and simple, yet what a difference it makes.

    I'm not hopeful we'll get this but I sure hope we do!

    How many threads are we going to have on backgrounds? They said they're coming so lets see what's coming.

    Here's a thread already in this forum. http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...d-options.html

    Nope - not the same.

    It messes up how tiles look. OP is trying to suggest the background - notice something instead of black or white? Yeah that..

    In a different thread I argued against backgrounds because I didn't think it would make a difference with such little whitespace, but wow...this proved me wrong.

    The best one would be - Bing image of the day. Changes every day!

    Bing images usually have many details, like animals or landscapes, which would make the start screen look like a huge mess with the live tiles having their own images and flipping. Wallpapers on WP8.1 should be really clean so that you won't lose fuccus when you are looking at/for a live tile.

    Yea, I think Bing images might have too many colors and clash with the live tiles (since they are real pictures), that's why I like the idea of premade backgrounds akin to W8.1 since they are designed to minimize number of colors and match. Also, if they synced with the background on your w8.1 microsoft account, that would be even better!

    Yes, choosing from a list of pre-included wallpapers would be better in my opinion.

    The tiles arrangement is not clean at all, I know. But when I said clean, I was talking about the clean wallpapers.

    Another thing we need to have is themes like Windows 8 - i.e. a theme file would be a background image (or multiple ones shuffling at intervals) + custom tile color (preferably with option to set light gradients for tile color in addition to solid tile color)

    Such themes should be made available in a seperate 'themes' section in the WP store

    Of course, a desktop app should be released with which anyone can easily make wp8 theme files and send to their phones.

    You can change background in WP 8.1, I guess it's already confirmed, no ??

    Themes would be great! I'd really like to see custom tile colours too, so that they can be made more cohesive, instead of having some arbitrarily green ones.
