Last week Google finally rolled Android 10 on its Pixel and Essential smartphones. Android 10 brought tons of changes to Android’s ecosystem including swifter gestures and better privacy controls among other things. The Android 10 update also brought also brought a new setting called ‘Customise Your Pixel’ in the Settings app.
The Customise Your Pixel setting right on top of all other settings in the app and is represented using a paint brush icon. Underneath it says – “Try different styles, wallpapers, clocks and more”. But when you open the setting, all you find is the wallpaper setting, which isn’t fully functional yet. Simply said, you cannot use Google Photos as your wallpaper yet. Now, XDA Developers reports that the tech giant is planning to introduce new themes in its Pixel 4 smartphones that would allow the Pixel smartphone users to customise various aspects of their device such as the clock style and colour and style of the icons among other things.
This might happen through a separate themes apps evidence of which the publication first found back in April this year in the code of Android Q beta. Now the publication has found more evidence in this regard in the code of Android 10. The app is likely to contain three sections – Style, Clock and Wallpaper. While the wallpaper section is already live, the new themes apps in Android 10 is likely to offer three options to the Pixel phone users:
— Crayon: Purple accent color, Arbutus font, Circular/Teardrop icons
— Collage: Green accent color, Arvo and Lato font, Filled icons
— Ash: Black accent color, Rubik font, Rounded/Squircle icons
As far as the clock settings are concerned, Pixel users will get to pick between — the default clock style, the bubble style, the analog watch and the type, which will display time in words.
It remains unclear when Google will unveil its new themes app and allow Pixel users to customise their smartphone. However, it is possible that the company introduces this feature with the launch of Pixel 4 smartphones next month and then gradually roll out the feature to older Pixel models.
