According to directions, Android 12 will get more extensive theme settings. This not only changes the background or icons, but the integration goes a lot further. Apps that offer support, for example, also color along.
Read on after the ad.
Android 12 themes:
Setting a theme now is standard on many devices from different manufacturers. Otherwise you can often get started with third party apps from the Play Store. According to 9to5Google the search giant is working on an extensive theme function for the upcoming Android 12. You set a primary and secondary color, which are then implemented everywhere – where possible – on your device.
That goes beyond the quick settings or the accent color of the smartphone, according to the website. 9to5Google does say that the color schemes you can choose from differ per manufacturer or even per device. In addition, it does not seem that you can choose certain colors yourself and put together your own theme. Downloading extras themes also does not seem to be possible.
This is what themes on Android 12 can look like
A developer of a particular app can also add support for this in Android 12. For example, an application can also color in the same colors as the chosen theme. All of this ensures a greater unity in the appearance of the software. 9to5Google has also published several mock-ups. In the gallery below, we first see an image of Android 11’s quick settings menu, then two images taken of what it might look like on Android 12.
From Android 10, (many) apps can already automatically switch between normal and dark mode. However, that mode looks very different with many apps. Where one app shows a dark gray background, in another mode in dark mode it is dark blue or black.
Finally, the website reports that the theme can automatically adapt to the chosen wallpaper. If you choose a different background, the color scheme will adapt system-wide.
First Android 12 for developers
The first Android 11 test version rolled out in February 2020, but whether that will also happen with Android 12 is still the question. If the same timetable is followed this year, it will only be a few weeks before we see the first version. It will then take months before Android 12 is prepared for the general public.
That is why it is easy that we will not see the above possibilities at all in the final version. In addition to such a system-wide theme with more possibilities, Google is working on even more Android 12 functions. For example, also check everything about these four possibilities, which we wrote about earlier.
