Google has launched a line of custom cases for its Nexus smartphones on Thursday, available now through the Google Store for $35.

Called "Live Cases", Google says you can upload your own photo or use a location from Google Maps to design a custom backing for your Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, and Nexus 6P phones. Once you choose a case design, Google will allow you to download a wallpaper to match.

Notably, Google has launched a version of the case with a programmable button on the back that can act as a shortcut to your favorite app.

Google is allowing users to design cases through its tool on Google Store, where they can add filters to customize the photo to their liking.
