Google has launched two new Live case lines for its Pixel phones that come with their own live wallpapers, and one of them's a lot more relaxing than the other. The Google Earth Live cases feature beaches, ice formations and other beautiful photos of our planet taken from the company's satellite imagery. While each case matches a specific Google Earth photo, their live wallpaper changes everyday using a rotation of curated images from the program. You'll also find a shortcut button on the home screen that you can tap to explore the specific location currently shown on your screen.

The Google Trends Live case's wallpaper, on the other hand, might not always be as enjoyable to look at. Instead of satellite imagery, it displays the top trending Google Searches... which aren't always pleasant. If reading current events, no matter how unsavory, doesn't negatively affect you, you can double tap the screen to bring up more trending topics or tap on the wallpaper's button to load the Search results for each particular topic.

Both Live case lines are now available in the US. You can get them from Best Buy and Verizon or directly from Google's online store.
