Samsung devices, for example, offer third-party themes in the Samsung store, but often these are changes to the entire system interface.

In turn, Apple offers a large number of options to fully customize your iPhone quickly and easily, offering quality tools to do so.

Thus, not only the notification panel will be thematic, but also the configuration interface, application icons, wallpaper, font, etc.

Why isn't there an easy way to theme or customize Android's notification panel? Well, actually there is, through some third party apps.

There are the best launchers to customize an Android to accomplish this task. Also, if you can customize the android navigation bar with emojis, this tutorial role will also be possible.

In this guide we will show you the best applications that will allow you to completely customize your notification panel, including colors, tile icons, transparency, or even photos as a panel background.

Next, we will provide you with information about some applications with which you can change the color of the notification bar of the application you want.


Power Shade: modification and management of the notification bar

This is a great application to change the notification bar color in each application.

Recently developed and released by the developers of Material Notification Shader themselves comes Power Shade.

Power Shade is basically the same application with many similar functions. It feels a little easier to use with a friendlier user interface and some additional features that aren't in the Material Notification Shader.

Material notification shader

Probably the best option for non-root users (and root users too, if you like simplicity), it lets you customize the notification panel completely with color, transparency, background photo and icon style.

If you have a Nougat phone but want Oreo notification panel icons, for example, Material Notification Shader can do it for you.

The only drawback is if you want it to be able to change your WiFi and mobile data status via the panel icons, you need root access, but this is a downside of Android, not the app itself.


If your device complies with the WHO theme, you should definitely use Substratum instead of anything else.

The only problem is that very few devices are already ready to use themed WHO, so it is often necessary to download and install a custom ROM with built-in OMS theme support.

What Substratum does is basically draw overlay layers on top of each chosen application, including the system-wide user interface, with whatever theme you download for Substratum.

However, many Substratum themes are premium, so it's not a good option if you don't feel like spending some money. That said, we have never regretted our purchase of the Swift Black theme.


Gravity box

It is an Xposed module, which requires you to have a rooted Android device and the Xposed management application installed.

Once installed, Gravity Box is an extremely powerful application that can change the notification bar color in any application and more.

It has a huge range of things to edit, including the lock screen, navigation bar, media and audio settings, and lots of other cool stuff.

Surely the only detail, as we have already told you, is that it works for rooted Android devices.

Therefore, if your mobile is not rooted, you need to check the options available on the internet to be able to root.

I also recommend that you first perform the procedure , read a little about the pros and cons of performing this procedure.
