These apps support Material You makeovers

Date:

Google debuted the ability to have themed icons on the home screen in Android 12, designed to go all-in on Material You themes. Now, in Android 13, third-party apps can enjoy themed icons; here is a running list of apps that support the functionality.

Theme icons are designed to create a unified look for home screen icons to match the system theme. Available in Android 12 and above, the feature gives the icon a dynamic theme and changes when the background changes the system colors. It works pretty well, in our experience, but it all comes down to how many apps support it.

In Android 12, this feature was only limited to apps the system allowed, which determined the Pixel Launcher (or Samsung launcher). On Pixels the list was: exclusively google apps. On Samsung devices, it was only Samsung apps. It was an incredibly limited version of the idea, but by no means the last.

In Android 13, the door is open for third-party apps to support themed icons. In just a few weeks since the launch of Android 13, theme icons are already appearing in more apps, even though it’s still completely opt-in.

Third-party apps that support themed icons on Android 13

The list of third-party apps that support themed icons on Android 13 is currently limited, which isn’t surprising given the scope of this feature for now. The list is currently as follows:

The two biggest apps to date with support for a theme icon on Android 13 are simply WhatsApp and Reddit, the former of which added support in the latest beta, and the latter in a public update on August 19. 1Password 8, which was released this month, also supports the feature, and Pano Scrobbler, a LastFM client, also added support today.

We will continue to update this article as new apps are released with the feature – leave a comment below or contact us if you know of any apps that support the feature but are missing from our list!

Samsung apps that support themed icons

Samsung also supports themed icons on Android 12, but like Pixels on Android 12, it’s only limited to apps from Samsung directly. Even Google apps don’t show up on the home screen with Material You colors on Android 12. However, it’s very likely that Samsung will use themed icons more widely in Android 13 (One UI 5.0), which is now in beta.
