Nothing lacks form MIUI ROM. It ships with so many key features which are super awesome. Performance-wise, MIUI boasts lightning speed user interface and lag-free operating system.
Frankly, we love everything in MIUI ROM but our love doesn’t stop us to adopt cool stuff originally coming from other devices. Google Camera is one example. With the active development of porting builds by BSG, Arnova, and so on, it is now possible to use Gcam on our Xiaomi phones. Gcam is a camera app originally available only on Pixel phones (Pixel 3, 3XL, Pixel 4, 4XL, etc.).
Gcam is not the only app of Google Pixel ported for other phones. Recently, a recognized member of XDA Pranav Pandey has managed to port Pixel 4 Live Wallpaper app for smartphones other than Google Pixel.
Pixel 4 is another flagship phone by Google announced in October 2019. The device has not been sold just yet but the leaks have been around the corner.
One of its new features is the Live Wallpaper app.
Pixel 4 Live Wallpapers app basically runs on Android 10.0 Q as per Pixel 4 specifications. The creativity and smartness of Pranav Pandey turn the app ported for devices running Android 7.0 Nougat, 8.0/8.1 Oreo, and 9.0 Pie. Of course, his ported build is also compatible for any Android 10 Q devices.
There are two limitations of Pranav’s build tho. First, the Live Wallpapers APK port works only on Snapdragon devices with 64-bit architecture (ARM64). Second, some features are still Pixel exclusive and hence it may not work on all other devices.
Cool features of Pixel 4 Live Wallpapers App v19:
Living Universe Wallpapers:
- Tarout Bay, Saudi Arabia
- Mount Pilatus, Switzerland
- Uluru, Australia
Live Wallpaper Themes:
- Garden: Leafy

Pixel 4 Live Wallpapers originally designed for Google Pixel which is a flagship phone. That said, flagship phones usually boast incredible hardware specification.
Hence, running the app on lower specifications may result in two possibilities. First, it may work flawlessly but will drain your battery. Second, it may work but not as sleek as if it runs on better hardware (and may drain the battery too).
As Xiaomi has introduced MIUI 11, some Xiaomi phones receive Android 10 update and a cool new feature called Always-On Display (AOD). Running Pixel 4 Live Wallpapers app on Android 10 needs to disable Ambient Mode. The mode is only supported by the apps signed with system signature. Therefore, it will not work on AOD.
