If you have recently updated to Samsung One UI 4.0 based on Android 12 then you can easily change app icons on your Galaxy phone. In this guide, you’ll learn how to apply an icon pack on Samsung One UI 4.0 based on Android 12.
Meanwhile, with One UI 2.0 or later based on Android 10, Galaxy users could have changed the icon shape from the developer options. However, with the arrival of Android 11 (One UI 3.0) the ability to change the app icon is gone forever.
Furthermore, One UI 4 adds icon pack compatibility, which had been mysteriously absent from Samsung’s Android skin for a long time. Sure, you could get custom icons from the Galaxy Store and utilize them, but most of them only cover a few key programs, so it wasn’t worth it. Let’s have a look at how to apply these icon packs to some of the greatest Android phones out there now that One UI 4 allows you to obtain far more fully-featured icon packs from the Play Store.
How to Apply Icon Pack on Samsung One UI 4.0 (Android 12)
If you are a Samsung Good Lock user then you must know about a module called “Theme Park.” Theme Park is a service that allows you to quickly and simply build a theme and install it. It extracts prominent colors from wallpaper and generates a theme depending on the user’s preferences and the colors. From preview displays, users may see how the final product will look. Make your own theme that reflects your unique individuality!
So, here are the steps to apply icon pack on Samsung Galaxy devices:
Note: The Below steps are only applicable on One UI 4.0 based on Android 12.
Step 1. Download and install Theme Park on your Galaxy phone. If you have the Good Lock app then find Theme Park from the lists.
Step 2. Open the Theme Park app and then navigate to the Icon tab and select +CREATE NEW.
Step 3. Select your preferred icon shape and then tap the Install button at the top right-hand corner.
Step 4. Enter any name and tap OK. Wait for the installation.
Step 5. Tap on the newly created icon packs and select Apply.
It’ll take a few moments for the icon pack to be applied, and then you’ll be back on your home screen, marveling at your beautiful new icons. One of the advantages of utilizing this technique over a third-party launcher is that the new icons will appear across the system, including the overview menu, edge panel, and even the applications area of the settings app. In my opinion, third-party launchers still don’t play well with gesture navigation, thus being able to do so in the standard launcher is a huge plus for users like me.
