I’ve had my Pixel 2 for just shy of 24 hours now, and I’m loving every moment I’ve spent learning about this phone. Hopefully, you don’t mind the coverage, because it’s going to be pretty heavily P2-focused here in the coming days, aside from a few product reviews that I need to get out.

Today’s first tidbit of knowledge comes by way of fellow Google+ user, Debopriyo Basu, who noted that the Pixel 2 has adaptive themes that change based on your wallpaper. For now, they only react to dark and light wallpapers and change your notification shader from black to white, respectively.

Adaptive themes on the Pixel 2 are a subtle, yet awesome touch

It’s a pretty small change, but it’s a change nonetheless. In fact, you might not even notice it, if you don’t know about it. Since it doesn’t require you to do anything but change your wallpaper, it’s somewhat easy to miss.

Take a look at the video at the top of this post to see the Pixel 2’s adaptive themes in action, if you haven’t already done so.

Cheers, Debopriyo!

ICMI: We unboxed the Pixel 2 yesterday. Twice, actually. We also wrote a tutorial on how to enable the “Now Playing” functionality to have your Pixel 2 identify songs playing around you. It’s a nifty feature, and just one of the many we’ll cover here in the weeks to come. Stay tuned for that, or subscribe to our newsletter to make sure you don’t miss anything.

Happy Thursday, Y’all!
