Material You, Android 12’s wallpaper-based theming, is clearly one of the operating system’s best features. However, when you change your background, some games are forced to stop due to a bug in Material You.
According to XDA Developers, a new bug complaint in the Google Issue Tracker explains how the problem causes some games to crash. Changing the wallpaper on Android 12 smartphones causes program operations to restart owing to a configuration change, according to the complaint. This option ensures that apps adapt to the Material You theme of the wallpaper effectively.

It is not like you often change backgrounds while playing a game; but when you do, the game you are playing appears to crash or restart as a result of the configuration change. This is because the settings are applied to all apps and games by default; it doesn’t matter if they use the Material You theming or not.
This can be a huge irritation if you utilize an automatic wallpaper changer. The glitch appears to be affecting a number of popular Android titles, including Wild Rift, Pokémon Go, Genshin Impact, Call of Duty: Mobile, PUBG Mobile, and Minecraft, according to XDA.
There is no solution as of now to Material You Bug
Game makers may usually avoid some setting modifications, such as dark mode or screen rotation. However, it looks that there is currently no method to opt-out of the game title wallpaper setting modification.
It’s best to change your wallpaper only after you’ve completed playing or to use a static wallpaper rather than an app that changes it in the background. It’s not a bad idea to turn off your wallpaper changer while you’re waiting for a fix.
