Scrolling wallpaper

Since receiving the One UI 2.1 update on my S9+ (T-Mobile USA) I no longer have working scrolling wallpaper. Nova Launcher has it enabled and they said they did not make any changes that would affect it. Can anyone else confirm the same issue?

So apparently the update to One UI 2.1 has had this effect on multiple models of phones, not just the S9 series. I confirmed w Teslacoil (Nova Launcher) the issue is not on their end and is an issue that Samsung introduced w the update.

 

Samsung moderators please pass this along to the development team. Your users want scrolling wallpaper back!

Hey, 

@ktklein72

I'm running Nova Prime on my galaxy S9. I'm also running KLWP. Wallpaper scrolling is working perfectly.

I don't know if makes a difference but I am running the latest beta version of Nova Prime. Ver. 6.2.13 Beta

Re: Scrolling wallpaper

Looks like my setup is exactly the same as yours minus the KLWP (and mine is a S9+). Maybe using KLWP is the reason it's working for you, not sure yet.

Re: Scrolling wallpaper

i sent email to nova launcher developer about this and they said samsung does not let 3rd party app to do scrolling wallpaper.

Re: Scrolling wallpaper

Yes they told me the same thing when I checked with them. But at some point it DID work on Samsung phones. Im pretty sure it worked right up until One UI 2.1 was installed a few weeks ago.

samsung changed their policy(or whatever it is) from UI 2.1. thats why it worked until 2.0 but not on 2.1

Hey, 

@ktklein72

I originally replied that it was working on my S9 because the scrolling wallpaper option in Nova launcher does effect the Kustom Live Wallpaper app I'm running.

I later turned off KLWP and tested various images with high resolutions using Nova launcher and One UI Home and got the same results as everyone here. I even tried the default Samsung infinity  wallpaper. For whatever reason that feature has been removed. Unfortunately. 

Have a good weekend,

Re: Scrolling wallpaper

Sadly, supporting older model phones does nothing to boost current sales figures. Slowly updating and slowly removing features nudges their customer base to upgrade and that DOES boost sales figures. 

 

With ads appearing in stock Samsung apps, slower and slower updates and now loss of some features, I'm considering going back to OnePlus. I had the original OnePlus One then migrated to Note7 (we all remember that debacle), S7 Edge, S8 and then the S9+. It might be time for a change again. Samsung prices have climbed way too high and given the stalled economy I'm guessing many consumers will start feeling that way as well.
