    Default HTC One (M8): "Theme" Colors...can they be changed?

    You know, the "theme colors", i.e., the one's that appear on the settings on the Auto Rotate, WiFi, Screen Brightness (etc.) widgets. Right now they are green. I also have these "theme" colors in the quick settings menu. I was wondering...can they be changed?

    Also, I have the orange "theme" color for the stock music application. Can this be changed? Or are these colors standard for the updated software version the M8 is currently using?

    Thanks ahead of time.

    I don't think you can change them individually. If you go to Settings > Personalize > Theme, you will see the preinstalled themes. The strip above the wallpaper image shows the highlight colors.

    Looks like that's it. Kinda a pain to change your background after each theme change, considering I only wanted to change the theme color of the buttons, and not the actual background.

    But it works.

    Thanks!

    Hopefully they'll improve that along the way.

    Agreed. It would be nice to be able to make your own, or get some themes from the Play store.

    It should ask you if you want to use the wallpaper with the selected theme, at least it does for me. That way you don't have to change the wallpaper with each theme

    Wow. I must have sub-consciously clicked "yes", thinking it was asking if I was sure if I wanted to change the theme.

    I just took a look at it and this does come up for me as well.

    Awesome! Thanks.

    Edit: in the stock HTC music app, the themes do in fact change the color. So you can change the red to black, yes. There's also little things that change with it too, like in the keyboard predictive words are highlighted in the selected them color

    Red music player? Which one?

    As far as I can tell the themes affect the color for BlinkFeed, quick toggles, and settings menu. Might be more but that's all I can think of right now

    You don't have to change the wallpaper everytime. When the pop up asks if you want to change the wallpaper to the theme wallpaper , just tap no. It'll change the theme colors but keep your same wallpaper

    Maybe just a thought this whole themes built into Sense 6.0 will be the start of something bigger with Sense 6.5 or even a future update to Sense 6.0..

    Default Re: HTC One (M8): "Theme" Colors...can they be changed?

    I've seen in the review video for Pocketnow that they had it once at a blue themed color. How exactly do I do that? From the 3 theme colors I see are green, orange, and, purple but he clearly had blue if I'm not mistaken. I do see a blue above where the purple theme can be selected but I have no idea if you can switch it to that exact color or not. Is it possible?

    The problem I'm currently having is that I can change my them but the BlinkFeed and App Drawer colors don't follow suit.

    I have the same issue, the app and BlinkFeed colour has changed to a blue colour and changing the theme doesn't change it back. We're stuck with a dull crappy blue at the moment.

    Ive just realised that HTC push installed an app called Themes recently, you can edit your colour from here

    There is an app called Themes, it was created by HTC and there you can change colors of any stock apps, but you can do more using a computer, just type HTC Themes and there should be link where you can make themes using a computer, you can choose more colors, more sounds and even change navigation bar icon look. But I wonder why when I create a theme navigation bar look, clock widget doesn't change. It lets me only change wallpaper and color of stock apps. So I'm having the same question why I can't change colors of keyboard, nottification bar icons?
