    How does the navigation bar color change for apps? it feels dynamic as WhatsApp shows the navigation bar in black color. But if you consider the following screenshot, the app theme is black, but the navigation bar still looks grey, which might feel out of place. Am I missing something here?

    You can use an app to recolor it, at the moment no built in option.

    Ya maybe I'll let it be for now, as in most cases it works, maybe 1/10 it looks like a sore spot. I would really love OnePlus to work on this and make it better, as the feature is a pretty good one

    I tried this and the effect is inconsistent which is somehow worse. I feel like this navigation bar issue is a deal breaker for me I'm not prepared to put up with it.

    I think that is somehow decided by the developer of the app, they can decide what color the navigation bar color to be.

    Maybe share what app you are having issue?

    Yes Nav bar is kind of annoying with what color it chooses for the app , One plus please fix

    Yes the nav bar color can be decided by the developer, but I think don't think a lot of developers do that as default black nav bar looks good.

    and for an example I've experienced, you can see the image in the original post, the nav bar is colored grey.

    I really like this feature though, constantly changing nav bar looks really good and also prevents screen burn in if u think about it. It's just that maybe the logic for the feature can be improved upon in further release so the color matches with the app and looks one

    This really really bad. This is not a feature, this is a big fat bug. Please give an option to change the navigation bar's background color to a simple black. I am not even consider to change to my new 5T from my 3T (with Oreo) if this is not corrected.

    Please correct it.

    I'm not going to pretend that it doesn't still annoy me but you get used to it eventually.

    I have the same issue, it's quite annoying, tried to fix it with several apps but didn't found any solution... I'm thinking to move to a custom rom, but not sure yet..

    It is quite annoying and I hope they fix it soon. Until then, I'm just using the hide feature. Most apps have a way to navigate without that actual navigation bar. Looks clean, too

    I don't think so. My Pixel 1 and my Pixel 2 XL (both for app development only) have a black navigation bar (if it is not defined otherwise in the app) and this is the Google style. If Oneplus doesn't offer the same style (at least as an option) than Oneplus just failed. This is really a dealbreaker.

    ps: Since Oneplus is (or was?) the next best option as close as possible to the pure Android and has 2 sim-slots (which I need to have) I use Oneplus.

    It should be transparent always with the navigation options should show with toggle function. Current one plus 5t navigation bars looks really stupid

    the nav bar is decided on the developer of the app. if the Dev didn't set it to anything, OnePlus either chooses the best matched colours or leave it at default
