One 5 Third-party themed icons

The Android 12 operating system brought a lot of fun new features last year, and chief among them is the Material You theming language. This is a new development that helps you bring a more connected look to Android while giving you a chance to make your phone completely unique and personalized.

Many Android 12-based smartphones adopted the new design language, Samsung One UI 4 is one of them. It creates a color palette that syncs with your phone’s wallpaper and when enabled, it applies to menus, buttons, backgrounds, and apps throughout your phone.

In your Samsung One UI 4 phone this theme is applicable not only on the company’s stock apps but also on Google apps. But that is not enough, users want these themes to be functional for third-party applications on their phones as well.

To be honest, even I don’t like that all the Samsung and Google applications on your phone are giving it a new look by adopting the same theme, and at the same time, third-party apps which are not applicable for adopting Material You spoil the look of the entire app drawer.

And yes, this could be one of the reasons why some people who use third-party apps don’t use dynamic theming. There are also many people who arrange Samsung and Google apps separately and third-party apps on separate pages.

This is a good idea if you want to apply dynamic themes without spoiling the look of your phone’s app drawer. But this is not what we Samsung One UI or Android fans want. Fortunately, this is going to be changed with the Android 13 One UI 5 upgrade this year.

Two Android 13 beta updates have been released that reveal that third-party apps are free to create their own theme-friendly icons so that you can always have a two-tone icon pack without having to install a custom launcher.

Now, just like Samsung and Google Apps will adopt the Material You theme on your One UI phone, so will third-party apps. Now it seems that we can completely customize our smartphone to our liking to give it a more personal look.
