The 5.3 update provides much more new feature, but the change of red notification badge to blue might not be that suitable.

Can we customise the color of the badge to our choice.

Or even different color for different apps in order to have coherrence.

Such as WhatsApp to be in green, Microsoft Outlook to be in blue...

I'd love to be able to change the badges back to red. Much more noticeable on my home screen.

I like the idea of being able to customize the badge color! Although, I like the blue because it fits my theme color.
Would definitely be cool to change the badge color to match the chosen theme color.
Or better yet, have a toggle in the badge settings to "auto match theme color"!

This is another great idea, thanks!

This is great too, but for others who have other preferences, others color might suit them more.

I actually like the Blue Notification Badge. Looks nice and fits my Dark theme.

Same here! But I think people would like to choose their own color as well.

It is like this now

if we can choose, that will be great

Mine is not like this now. My badges are blue, and I'd like the ability to change them back to red. Choice is the key here; I realize red might not be for everyone, but I missed it immediately upon the change to blue.

I think so too, this launcher attracts me because of it variety in customisation.

Well... You got your wish. The update just now reverted the badges back to red...
Sadly.... I really like the larger badge in blue
Highlighted
My *wish* is for choice. My *usage* would be red if there was a choice. ;)
Highlighted
I agree on choice. Would like to change the color as I feel so inclined. To fit whatever current background or theme I'm using. That just so happens to be blue right now :beaming_face_with_smiling_eyes:

But for someone else, it might be different, so if we can have a choice, that will be better.

There should be our choice on the color in the Notification Badges, or simply made them aligned with the Accent Colour that we choose...
