Setting the dynamic theme is very simple and can be done in two ways: via a long tap on the home screen or from the system settings.

Method 1

On the screen Background and Style you can configure system colors

Method 2

From the screen Background and Style you can configure system colors

With that done, simply choose your favorite wallpaper and the system automatically chooses a color palette. If you want to change the colors from the automatic configuration, go back to the screen Background and Style – using method 1 or 2 – and follow the steps below:

  1. Switch to option Background colors .
  2. You will be able to choose between 4 options. By clicking on it, the system will show you a preview of the color change.
  3. You can also choose to use i only Base Colors by clicking on the button of the same name. Here you also have 4 options.
Photo styles - default

In the Background and Style settings, you also find the dark theme the icons a theme and settings of the grill of the app.

Suggestion: Since the dynamic theme uses the more vibrant shades of the background in use, obviously the more colorful it is, the more interesting the color scheme can become. So, my advice is to download as many wallpapers as possible and test the colors that suit you best
