We all use the Android alarm in our routine. Typically, there aren't much customization options for alarm, right?
But, if you want to customize alarm in your handset, then this guide is for you. In this post, we will see the steps to customize alarm on Android. Let’s get started.
Customize Alarm on Android
Change Look, Style and Color of Alarm
When you set an alarm, you can see the default alarm clock icon in the status bar showing random time. By default, it will not show the time for which you set the alarm.
But, you can use the following Xposed module to display the alarm clock with your alarm time in the status bar. Also, you can change the style and color of the alarm clock with this module.
But, there are 2 requirements needed to get this done:
- Rooted Android device
- Xposed framework
If you have both the requirements, then you are good to go.
- Open Xposed framework and navigate to the Download section.
- Search for the “DynamicAlarmIcon”.
- Install it, activate it and reboot the device.
- After reboot, open the module from the app drawer. Now, you can see these options:
- Tap the options and change them as per your wish. By default, your alarm time will be shown in the status bar alarm clock.
- Just set the alarm, reboot the device and you can see the changes now.
