What’s New With Android 8.0 Oreo: Custom Color Options For Folders

If you tend to have a lot of apps on your device then it’s best to sort them neatly into folders. It makes it easier to find the apps that you’re looking for without having to scroll endlessly.

The Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 Oreo beta lets users add some flair to the folders. Tapping on the icon alongside the folder’s name brings up a list of available color options. The multi-colored option can be selected to pick a custom color for the folder from a full-fledged color picker.

Once the preferred color has been selected, users just need to tap “Done” and the folder will automatically be filled with that color. It’s as simple as that.

We’ll be sharing more observations as part of this ongoing What’s New With Android 8.0 Oreo series so do check back for more. If you don’t already know, here’s how you can download Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 Oreo beta on your device.

Samsung went from the worst UI / UX to the best Android UI and (in my opinion) even looks better than the stock Android

I wish Samsung would have stayed away from this gimmick so that it does not make the software heavy. We sure can live without having custom colour for folders .

you do realise a line of code is not gonna impact performance, you could already choose colours, its added bytes to the OS not MB! chill!

I do realise. What people don’t realise is that such single one line of code for useless features here and there makes up 1000s of redundant line of code. There are far more issues with S8 which Samsung could fix and put time effort than these.
