Xiaomi’s Super Wallpaper are animated wallpapers or “live wallpapers” in MIUI, when you turn on your Xiaomi smartphone and make amazing zooms on the planets and are very popular. But with this very easy method you can install super wallpaper on any android smartphone for free.
In MIUI 13, the latest version of Xiaomi’s Android overlay, there are 5 default super wallpapers and you can install them all by downloading your APK on your Samsung, Oppo, OnePlus, Sony or other smartphones.
Start by downloading Super Wallpaper APK from a reputable platform that you trust (APKMirror, APKPure or others). Choose the latest version to make sure you have all available wallpapers.
Currently there are several versions, but the most complete and secure ones are indie developers. linuxct. It features both Super Earth and Super Mars, but each contains multiple wallpapers. So it will always be the same image on your lock screen, be it Earth or Mars.
But you can change the wallpaper that appears when you turn on your smartphone and Super Wallpaper Zoom happens. linuxct also keeps updating the apks with menus to change the type of wallpaper displayed, eg:
Apply super wallpapers via Google Wallpaper
Once the APKs are downloaded and installed, you can set the super wallpaper as your wallpaper through your smartphone’s settings, just like a classic live wallpaper.

If your smartphone does not allow you to set Xiaomi’s Super Wallpaper directly, you will have to use the free one Google posts App.
- open up Google Posts.
- Scroll down and tap . Animated wallpapers.
- Apply Super wallpaper As per your choice, super earth, Super MarsOr Distant rings (Super Saturn).

Just switch from the available versions, Super Earth, Super Mars or Faraway Rings, from Google Wallpapers, and access the corresponding app to choose one of the 5 available wallpapers.
A Xiaomi smartphone running MIUI 13 is not enough to have Super Wallpapers by default. Indeed, Xiaomi explained that its flagship smartphones offer Super Tapper by default as it is the only smartphone with high-end Snapdragon chips.
Super wallpapers should work on almost all smartphones running at least Android 8.1 Oreo with my trick. But beware of your battery life as this feature is very power intensive and can also cause performance slowdowns on entry-level or low-mid smartphones.
