Another Android 13 leak is in and this one is about the design aspect. With Android 12, Google introduced its Material You theming engine (Pixel exclusive) which applies a varied color palette across your home screen, widgets, icons and menus based on colors found in your wallpaper. It seems this feature will be further expanded in Android 13 (codenamed Tiramisu) as a new report from Android Police details new color palette combination options and brings us their source code names.
Tonal Spot, Vibrant, Expressive, Spritz will each come with a preset of colors again based on the hues found in your wallpaper. The latter three options offer a wider range of accent colors with some not even part of the background image’s palette. Spritz for example uses more muted monochromatic tones that fit nicely with dark mode while Expressive offers more popping colors that still match the core ones from you background image.
The new features are still in the early development phase and with at least another several months ahead of the first Android 13 developer betas we might see other changes take place.
