While consoles don't allow for as much personalization as a gaming PC, you can still tweak small details to make your system to your taste.One of the easiest ways to do this on an Xbox Series X or Series S is to set a new background for your home screen.


But you don't have to stick to boring static wallpapers; your Xbox includes several dynamic backgrounds to add life to your menu experience.Let's take a look at the best ones.

How to Access Dynamic Backgrounds on Xbox Series X|S

To access options related to your Xbox Series X or Series S background, go to Settings > General > Personalization > My Background.Here, select the Dynamic Background option to browse the available options.


We're going to stick with our list of the best dynamic Xbox themes here.Since there are only 17 at the time of writing, it makes sense to cover them all.They fall into three categories:


These backgrounds are fun and not tied to a specific art style.

1. Waves


Waves is a simple background with twisted stripes that move slowly across the screen.It's an attractive animation that doesn't distract from what's on the menu.

This background is influenced by the color you choose for the system, allowing you to customize it further.

2. Waves: Faded

This background is the same as Waves, only the colors are washed out.If you find that Waves makes it hard to see what's going on in the menu, try this soft approach.

Like Waves, this background is also affected by your system color.

3. Spotlight: Ultraviolet


Choosing this background will give you an abstract patch of purple, pink and blue.This is similar to looking through a microscope.This slow-moving and simple background is perfect for minimalists and won't be affected by your system colors.

4. Spotlight: Midnight

Midnight has the same style as Ultraviolet, but uses blue, green and yellow colors.If you like cool-toned colors, try this one.

5. Spotlight: Deja Goo

The final Spotlight dynamic theme is the same as its siblings.Its color scheme is orange and blue, which makes it look more contrasting.It evokes memories of autumn days by the water.

6. Ribbons


The color bar shows multiple bands, all but one of which are black.The individual bands are green by default, or will change to the Xbox system color of your choice.Since it is dynamic, the bands move slightly.

7. Ripple

Like a stone falling into a pool, the rippling background shows rings pulsing from a central point.It's a calm slow motion.Try changing the system color to blue, you can get more aquatic effects.

8. Motes


This background will make you feel like you are looking at a field of fireflies, or maybe a starry sky.It features a smoky backdrop with floating lights up front, making it a great choice for night lovers.

9. The Original

Feeling nostalgic about the first Xbox console?This dynamic background brings the boot animation and main menu background of Microsoft's first console.For some reason it's not under the Xbox title.

If you've been an Xbox user for decades, this one will bring back fond memories.

10. Mercury

The Xbox dynamic background, called Mercury, looks like a pool of eponymous elements that keeps shaking.It gives your Xbox a lava lamp-like experience and is the last theme on the list that changes based on the Xbox color you choose.


These backgrounds celebrate the Xbox brand and its history.

11. Game Pass


Xbox Game Pass is one of the best deals in gaming, and you can celebrate it with this live wallpaper.It depicts a set of buildings with game icons like lightning, arcade and heart.

Dynamic elements, like the heart circling and the lights shining, are subtle.But its unique art style helps it stand out among the many options.

12. Xbox 20th Anniversary

In November 2001, Xbox celebrated its 11th birthday, and this special backdrop was part of the festivities.It features the "20" and the Xbox logo within the zero, as well as moving dots around the element on the edge.

What's unique about this background is that you have to have an Xbox 20th Anniversary Edition controller connected to your console for it to show up in the list.Sadly, this controller is sold out in Microsoft's store, so you'll need to turn to other retailers or third-party options if you're interested.

13. Xbox 360

If you want to celebrate Xbox history but can't get an anniversary controller, try this backdrop.It features the classic Xbox 360 logo and green rings that move slightly to give it a dynamic element.


Finally, there are some dynamic backgrounds representing Xbox games.

14. Halo Infinite


Celebrate the latest release of the Halo series with this live wallpaper.It features the game's box art with some small moving elements like the movement of the ship and flares rising in the background.

15. Halo Infinite: Courage

Here's another Halo Infinite dynamic background showing action scenes.Moving elements include shots across the screen and dust raised in the background.

16. Wasteland 3: Cult of the Holy Detonation

This background promotes Wasteland 3's DLC by letting you use a scene from the game as a backdrop.The dynamic elements are subtle, which means that probably only fans of the game will love this background.

Since the DLC received a ton of negative reviews on Steam, it's arguably the worst Xbox Series X|S dynamic background.This isn't even an Xbox-released title, so it's an odd inclusion.

17. Grounded Backyard Sunset


Grounded is a survival game from Xbox Game Studios that shrinks you to the size of an ant.Therefore, this dynamic scene has a perspective from the ground.When you admire the scenery from the eyes of a bug, you will see changes in water and light.

Decorate your Xbox with dynamic themes

With over a dozen options to choose from in the list of Xbox Series X dynamic backgrounds, there's something for everyone.Microsoft has slowly added to this list over time, so we should see more context in the lifecycle of these consoles.
