It's a Monzo-ey Christmas 🎅

(#savetheseabass) #31

Oh no, has to be first thing. It’s never too early for chocolate

(A/S/L?) #32

I have nostalgic memories of me as a kid shaking the advent calendar so that the chocolate from the window above would fall into the window that I’d already opened. Great idea in the moment, but not so great when that actual door above is meant to be opened :hugs:

Looks like Monzo wanted to change it up a bit :tada:

Another, more different, Christmas £10 :yum:



Thanks @nexusmaniac - this is an awesome playlist and has got me through making the Xmas cake and Xmas puds :grin:

This Christmas I made a goal for myself not to buy any presents with plastics. So far so good!


New account holders get the £10 after their first spend, right? Is there a time limit to make that first spend?

(Marcus Nailor, Hot Coral Detective) #37

Correct! :grin:

No idea on that one unfortunately :thinking: I’d say the sooner the better though :wink:

Sadly no Christmas App Icon in the latest Android beta :joy:

At least the option has returned though :blush: There’s still time before Christmas :eyes:


Has it been mentioned that the android Beta icon is different to the iOS one?

I much prefer the red Beta icon to the minty green iOS one!

It’s been mentioned by a few people (with me :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:) I definitely prefer the red one too :tada:


Seems odd they’d have different colours! Was there a reason?

They should untick their Big List item of “making iOS and Android the same” - This is clearly in favour of Android :joy:

(Marcus Nailor, Hot Coral Detective) #42

I agree! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: I’ll see if I can find out :eyes:

(Marcus Nailor, Hot Coral Detective) #43

@nickh I found out :tada:

Alpha is supposed to be the green and Beta is supposed to be red. I believe there was just a little mix up during implementation. I’ll try and flag this up again. :+1:

Monzo are looking into this now :slight_smile:

Monzo Icon
Custom app icons on Android
Monzo for Android - Beta Channel Changelog :male_detective:

Glad it’s that way around!

I’d either have the blinggy investor icon or the beta red icon.

The green one is a bit “meh”.

100% would background this :ok_hand:

(Marcus Nailor, Hot Coral Detective) #46

Well… With custom pot images round the corner (maybe, potentially, perhaps :eyes:) this could totally be a thing :joy:

Looks like Monzo added a custom pink shade as the background… I can’t seem to do the same with Paint 3D :sweat_smile:, boy photoshop would be handy :joy:

It snows in the Monzo app! :tada::snowflake::snowman_with_snow::hot_coral_heart:

And for good measure… I gave Hot Chip a nice cosy hat :innocent:


I just tried it on the offchance after I opened the Tesco Bank app to be wished a “Merry Christmas”!
