I have noticed the new version of Android has notification dots.

The new multicolor dots I find frustrating. I would prefer if I could set one color for all notification dots(like red for example).

....we even extract the color of the dot from your icon.

So, not possible

    I think theoretically a solution with Xposed could be viable as well. If you use it.

  • I prefer notification dots with respect to app icon color. In my stock moto launcher, it showed only in single color(light green), so I changed launcher to Nova launcher, which is now shows based on app icon color.

  • @Namnodorel Now that P is out I'll probably upgrade to that now which I don't believe has xposed support.

In complement to what beeshyams reply:

1.Answer:

As of now, you can't change Oreo Notification dots colors in AOSP, starting from Android 8.0, native Notification Dot color depends on its app icon colors.

I said AOSP, because some mobile manufactures are using their own UI apps (Launcher/ Theme apps etc... ), thus they can control Notification dots like Nova Launcher.

2.Workaround:

You can use Nova Launcher Prime with TeslaUnread. with its built-in notification dots (also with number of notifications) and you can change and choose a constant color too.

  • Unfortunately the option of Notification badges is not available in the free version.

3.Example:

This example is using Numeric Badges, you can change the Numeric Badges to None, Dynamic Badges or Dots as seen in Android O.

  • Unfortunately this is unread count and not badge color you are changing.
