Google made its Live cases available today, and they are quite possibly some of the coolest cases you can get right now. The cases are only available for the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, and Nexus 6P, and they are sold and customized directly from the Google Store.

The Live case can be customized by going to the Google Store. You can select from two choices, Places Live case, and the Photos Live case. Both are priced at $35 which is reasonable considering the level of customization you get. It is a great way to make your phone your own.


If you go to the Places Live case to make a custom protector, you can follow this walkthrough:

  • Select your device – Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, or Nexus 6P
  • Select a place on the map you want to show up on your case
  • Customize your map to fit your own style, or leave it in the original map coloring
  • Select which finish you want: Gloss or Matte. As of right now, only the Matte finish is available
  • View your custom case in 3D and your case will also come with a custom live wallpaper

To make a Live Photos case, the process is very similar:

  • Select a Photo from your desktop or Google Drive
  • Customize your case with shapes and different colors on top of your image
  • Choose a finish
  • View your case with the live wallpaper you will get with the case in 3D
