    My S8 updated today and I no longer see the option to add a background to the always on display? Was this removed?

    The Oreo update.

    Yes, I also noticed that the AOD background option is gone.

    It's under settings in the lockscreen and security. Click clock and facewidgets. Then click change clock style. It's under there.
    That's also where you can change the lockscreen clock. I know a few people were having meltdowns over that. Lol

    Why would you want a background on there? The whole idea of the aod is that it uses minimal screen pixels to show minimal info, thereby saving battery life and avoid walking the phone just to check the time..

    Me personally I just like looking at my face in the middle of the night on my aod screen. Lol

    It's just a simple faint graphic that is barely bigger than what the time and info under it takes up. You could only pick from a limited set of graphics.

    That option is no longer there after the Oreo update.

    Not anymore. Nothing for the background.

    The lockscreen clock does finally get some style options, including changing the old stacked look that many around here complained about.

    So you're talking about changing the actual background and not just the spot where you add the picture? If so I wasn't aware that was an option before the update.

    There wasn't many options, and themes could add to them, but I liked to use them. It's that "background" button that's missing now.

    Oh yeah. I didn't use the background feature so I'd forgotten all about it. Sorry

    You can change the image in always on display under clock and facewidgets.

    I really, really loved that option. I wish there was a way to have it back. Does anyone know how to get anything like it back? It was one of the cool features I loved about this phone.

    I know, I'm geeky and strange but I loved that purple pebbled-type background on my clock
