    1. Hi Saurav,
      Thanks for writing here. As of now, there is no option to control toggle bar colour. Colour comfortability already reported for third party apps text in the notification bar.
      Hope we receive this option in future updates.
      Kind Regards

    1. Hi Gourav Mathur,
      As of now, you can’t change notification bar color because it depends on the weather.
      however, you can use themes to control the color.
      Kind Regards
