    I'm bringing this one out of retirement. It's my understanding that you can use Light Flow or an app similar to it to manage the LED colors being used for various notifications on the S6. I haven't tried personally, so I'm not sure of the results; although I will say that the WhatsApp app gives you the ability to set which color appears for single and group msgs within it. Some of the colors don't look "exactly" as expected (e.g., "Yellow" appears to be a really faint, lighter green color for the LED).

    Had anyone else tried controlling/modifying certain LED notification colors?

    As you said, you can do it through an app in the app store or through a specific app. My email app, sms app, and messaging app all allow it. I decided to stick with the settings in individual apps rather than using a dedicated app. The dedicated apps have mixed reviews.

    The only problem is that there is an additional application present consuming resources. Settings such as the ability to configure the light indicator, as well as to configure the touch key light, were present before but unfortunately were removed.

    I know this is for S6 but lightflow doesn't work with my S7 and I can't find any solutions to led notification control yet.

    Apps usually have that in their own settings. If an app does not have the option then it is up to the developer to add it.

    You can change the LED color for texts only as far as I know in the Message+ app if you go to the upper right hand corner menu and go to Customize. But I have an S7 so I don't know if it's the same for an S6.
