Custom wallpaper

There are so few options for wallpaper. I've searched and can't find how to make and submit one. Can someone fill me in or link me? I'm a graphic designer, I should be able to make some more acceptable wallpapers for the community.

Re: Custom wallpaper

I don't think it's possible.  At one time Roku was going to inform developers how to create themes (as they're called), but that never transpired.  It could be that I just missed it since it wasn't something that interested me, but you can try to search for Roku theme development and see if you get anywhere.

Re: Custom wallpaper

I hope this happens sooner rather than later. We can make custom screensavers so I don’t see why a wallpaper would be anymore difficult.

Re: Custom wallpaper

I agree. I feel so limited with roku. I want to be able to set my own image as a wallpaper instead of using these generic looking wallpapers

Re: Custom wallpaper

I was searching for this and found the below on Roku's site. I haven't tried it yet but plan to. Hopefully this helps Smiley Happy

The free Roku mobile app
To send the photos and videos to your TV, all you need to do is download the Roku mobile app for Android or iOS, select “Photos+” from the main menu and choose photos or videos. Seriously, it's that easy. You can even create a screensaver for your TV using pictures from your mobile device.Jun 14, 2019

No luck here.  I selected Media, but I don't have a Screensaver option.  Just Music, Photos, and Videos.

Same here, no screensaver option in the Roku app on my Pixel 3XL accessing a Westinghouse Roku TV.

That is for a screensaver. It would be nice if we could create our own wallpaper too.
