    Took a phone call just now and the background theme color of the phone screen is solid white. It used to be a medium blue in color. When did this change? Can I get the blue theme back? The white is awfully bright and hard to look at.

    Mine is still blue. Did your phone app get an update recently?

    Mine has turned white too and I'm happy with that I found the blue kind of horrible looking

    Oh, hang on... When making/receiving a phone call if I tilt the phone a bit the screen turns blue! Yes!

    Oh wait, some people think that's a Pixel 2 XL flaw...

    Mine is white now, as well. I think it's part of the Material Design update. Contacts app converted at the time, I noticed.

    Yeah there was an update to both my phone and contacts apps yesterday that changed it to white. Kind of like the change. The blue was getting a little stale.

    When you got the update to 23.0.somereallylonguselessnumber
    If you have a backup of the old version you can install that, or I guess you could roll back to the original factory version and then not update it.

    Just got the update and it's white now and if you look at the details on play store, says dark mode is coming soon, so I figured they are updating all the new UI's to white to easily convert to dark mode

    I'm happy with the Contacts App update because before when I tapped a contact it would immediately start dialing them most of the time. That was frustrating. (moto x4)

    That happened to me about two weeks ago, and then tonight, my SMS messages changed from primary colors to pastel colors and I can not customize any contact SMS colors. Any idea how to get back to the primary colors?

    I'm fine with the updated phone app as long as we get the dark mode soon. The messages app has dark mode again after recent update and looks pretty good.

    Dark mode looks quite nice.

    Oops! That wasn't the phone app, that was the Messenger app.
    It's after midnight here on the East Coast.
    I'm tired.
    Yes, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

    Seems like it is rolling out to the messages app. I just got it and it is awesome to say the least!

    But now I can't change the bubble colors :-(

    I wish mine was blue OR white... Note 9 is stuck with this godawful brown color. Been trying to figure out how to fix it for months.

    The blue didn't fit with any other Google design aspects.
