MacOS – How to set an animated GIF as the desktop wallpaper


How can I make my desktop wallpaper image an animated GIF?

Best Answer

  • You can use Mojave's dynamic wallpaper. macOS doesn't natively support animated GIFs as wallpapers.

    However you can use this but at the cost of a shorter battery life for a wallpaper that you probably wouldn't see in action because you got windows all over.

    Your case is more like needing a really thin phone(GIF) which you are gonna cover with a case(windows) anyways.
