Before, in recent apps list of my phone (Samsung Galaxy Note8), headers of apps were colored. Now, they are all white.

I am not sure whether it was caused by the transition from Nougat (7.1) to Oreo (8.0) or by a change in some Android settings. They are white for several months.

I would like to return to colored ones for faster navigation using app colors. Is it possible?

It looks to me that this is not possible, because Oreo re-used the color coding for different purpose:

  • white header: standard app
    • and here, the original coloring concept is partially present in text color (instead of bg color)
  • light cyan header: app pair on split screen

enter image description here

I think that this new coloring purpose implies that the original coloring is gone.
