Android turned its social media accounts into purple color, rooming out from its traditional green. But why? Why does Google decide to switch from green to purple?
On August 10, Samsung launched its latest foldable devices on August 10, packed with the latest Android 12L. As a large screen device, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 promotes some new unique features derived from Android 12L such as the new multitasking taskbar.
This new taskbar has an app layout similar to a computer and allows you to access the recent apps in an instant to make multitasking an instant. It also supports gestures and could turn an app to full screen or shrink a full screen with ease.
With this launch, Samsung enabled purple as its default color instead of black and DPs to purple.
Since Samsung has been so far the biggest promoter of Android and a big player in the Android world. It’s obvious that Android will support Samsung in return for hiking up its sales volume and promoting its products.
In support, Android has changed covers and logos on Twitter and Facebook and also posted the following statement onboard.
“Android is goin’ Purple today. Shoutout to Samsung – big things coming. #SamsungUnpacked”

What does it show?
In the past few years, Samsung’s uprising has brought this Korean phone maker closer to Android and its integration for Google Mobile Services as well as new features have been dropped first in Samsung devices.
Hence, it has been so far, the first case user of the latest features powered by the Android ecosystem. On the b-side, Google also purchases new technologies through Samsung such as chipsets and display panels for pixel devices.
Is it temporary?
Yes, it’s temporary, Android will turn green as the day passes or when Google decided to wear back the traditional green.
