Google on Thursday announced the launch of custom Live Cases for the Huawei Nexus 6P, the LG Nexus 5X and the Motorola Nexus 6.

Kari Clark, Senior Manager, Live Cases, in a blog post said that the Google Store will offer users various personalisation options to users for phone cases to either choose a favourite photo or a special place marked on Google Maps. The company has classified the new custom Live Cases in two categories – Photo Live Case, which can include an image, and Places Live Case, which will include a specific place on Google Maps.

After choosing your favourite image or place, you can apply dozen of filters available to fit your style. And, as a complimentary, you’ll get live wallpaper based on your image or place, to bring your design to life on your home screen.

The Live Cases come with a customizable button. By default, this will launch your camera app if you’ve used a photo for the customization, or it will show you what’s nearby in Google Maps if you’ve gone with a place.

The custom Live Cases feature is only available to US as for now, but we may expect Google to expand its services outside its borders soon.

Start designing your own live cases in the Google Store and one case costs $35, regardless of the design you choose.
