Cool new dynamic themes for Android are the epitome of elegant design. But monet, as the feature in development was called, could get a more carefully designed upgrade with Android 13. Google is developing four new color groups for these dynamic themes, which cover a range from exaggerated liveliness to subdued saturation.
If you’re not familiar, Google’s new dynamic theme system is a feature that’s debuting in Android 12 beta. It changes everything from system colors to icon themes to match your background in a simple, elegant, and beautiful way. Unfortunately, the feature is exclusive to Pixel for now, although other manufacturers are working on their own versions (like Samsung and OPPO), and it could expand more widely in the future.
According to a reliable source, Google has four new color combinations planned for its dynamic customization system, which is currently under active development. In the code, the four names are currently called:
- TONAL_SPOT: The current default colors selected by Monet.
- VIBRANT: A panel similar to TONAL_SPOT, but with slight differences in complementary accents.
- Candid: A wide range of colors, apparently including some colors not already in the background, but complementing them well.
- SPRITZ: Silent, desaturated, almost monochromatic theme.
All four styles still rely on your current background for color inspiration, but they each do things a little differently. We should point out that Pixels with Android 12 dynamic themes have four styles available for them as well, but that will be different. Previous options did not cover this type of range in intent. Previously, the four colors changed the color of the “seed” from which the dynamic theme system generates its colors. New patterns are dynamically more playful, building on discovered colors in more charming and consistent ways.
Without further ado, a bunch of galleries of what each topic looks like with an example background:
Our source did not share a screenshot of the settings page where you will be able to choose these styles. These new styles are apparently in development, however they may change before we see them debut in a public release.
We’re probably still a month or so after the first developer releases of Android 13 – and that’s assuming Android 12L doesn’t change the usual schedule. However, we know a lot about Android 13 already among the early leaks and code executions. Other recently spotted changes include a simplified QR code scanning process, a tap-to-transfer feature to move media playback between devices, a new “Panlingual” feature for language settings for each app, and some user interface tweaks. As we get closer to the preview release, expect the newly spotted features to increase in frequency.
