Android Q lets you change accent color, font and icon shapes


March, 2019

Pixel | Android | Beta

Android Q comes with a lot of changes. One of the many changes are the option to change accent color, font and icon shapes.

Android skins from Samsung, Huawei and others have been known to offer a ton of customization with themes and heaps of settings. A big argument for Android is that you can customize it to your liking. Many have been wanting more customization out of the stock Android experience you get with the Pixel phones and today is the day.

In order to change these settings you need to activate developer options. You can do this by going to Settings -> About phone and then tapping the build number until you are a developer. Then you need to go to Settings -> System and you will see "Developer options" under advanced. If you scroll all the way down to the bottom you will see theming.
