Custom app icons on Android

(Richard Cook) #1

You can now pick a custom app icon on Android, just like on iOS!


What colours are right for beta: iOS or Android and will they ever match?


Android is always the right one :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


This has been active for about a week…?


Only if you were on Beta. I assume this update is after the latest update for non-beta users.


:thinking: :joy:


Just to show the visual difference as @HoddzDJ pointed out;

It has been confirmed that Android is the right way around :wink:

I’m a beta tester but I don’t seem to get the Beta icon…


I believe Beta is for those who were part of the Monzo Beta (pre-current account) rather than for the App Beta testers (which is more of a Google thing, anyway).

Ah! That’ll be why then.

Anyone notice the snowfall in the app this afternoon?

(Martin Jones) #13

Been snowing for a few days if you shake phone

(If there's the wrong end of a stick, you'll find me holding it.) #14

It’s been raining here (Wales) whether I shake the phone or not, sadly.

The snow falls here after quite a vigorous (Android) shake. Works for both Personal and Joint Accounts too. Nice.

Must not been shaking hard enough :joy:


Is there anywhere to download the alt logo icons as pngs / svg?

Can the press kit please be updated @cookywook inc the weird iOS beta green?

I’d love to know what’s happened behind the scenes to make this possible. It almost seems like the app reinstalls itself, but I can’t see that being the case.


It think it works the same way as custom app icons work in launchers or icon packs. You always have the choice to customise your app icons.

If i had an icon pack installed, I could have extra choices:

I think it’s done with multiple launcher entries in the manifest :slight_smile:
