It also brings new possibilities for more technical people, like easier theming, customization and conversationalist.”

Then you set the theme to any of the other three, the accent colour that the user chose will be used in all apps.”The company said that they are working on the changes suggested by Tijink and it is expected that they could be introduced with OnePlus 7.
