Update 2.2 for Wallpaper Engine introduces new fluid simulation effects and media integration to let users further customize their experience with the app.

Media Integration 

In this update, the developers added the song Wallpaper Engine Update 2.2 data and album covers to be part of the wallpapers. This feature will only work if your Windows media overlay has data to feed the Wallpaper Engine. You might have to enable the feature if you can't see it the first time.

Fluid Simulation 

The developers introduced a new feature that allows you to add dynamic fluid simulation to your wallpapers, and it looks beautiful. Combine this feature to make interactive fluid, fire, or even smoke effects.
