As of Android 8.1, apps are required to be granted the Storage permission to be able to access to the device’s wallpaper.

In a future update Action Launcher will add UI to inform users of this and make this process easier, but for now the fix is to ensure Action Launcher has the Storage permission.

On a Pixel phone, this is done via System Settings -> App permissions -> Storage and enabling for Action Launcher.
