How do I change the theme on my Galaxy device?

 

Themes

 

Themes allow you to change the look of your Samsung Galaxy device by changing colours, icons, and menus.

 

Your device will come with a number of pre-set themes which you can use to personalise your device. The number of themes and the theme options you have will depend on your model.

 

Themes are not the same as wallpapers. Themes change colours, icons and menus, while wallpaper allows you to set the background image or picture on your screen. You can find out more about changing your wallpaper here.

 

Note that the steps below may appear slightly different depending on your model and the theme you already have in place. 

 

 

How to change your theme (provided themes)

 

There are two ways to change your theme. You can either change it from the home screen by pressing and holding the screen (step 1a) , or you can change it via the Settings menu (1b)

 

1a. To change your theme from the home screen, press and hold an empty area of the screen, then select Themes.

Downloading new themes

 

The availability and options you have for downloading new themes depends on your device.

 

Samsung's Theme Service

 

The Samsung Theme Service allows Galaxy users to choose from over 1000 diverse themes to personalise your device.

 

Note that not all devices support the Samsung Theme Service. Visit the Theme Service page to view supported devices.

 

If the Theme Service is available on your device, you will see an extra option when viewing the provided themes. You will have the option to tap STORE on the top right corner of the screen or More Themes to view additional themes for download.

Other options

 

If you do not have access to the Theme Store, you can still download themes for use on your device via the Google Play Store or Galaxy Apps.

 

 

Troubleshooting

 

I changed my theme but not all of my icons changed to match the theme

 

Each theme has separately designed icons for that theme.

 

However, if you have downloaded third-party apps or are using an independently designed theme, the designers of the theme or app may not have designed an icon for that particular combination of app and theme.

 

I updated my device but it went back to my old theme.

 

Depending on the updates made, your device's theme may revert back to the default design. If you want to use a theme that you have previously downloaded, simply follow the steps above to return to your chosen theme.
