Why my Color theme defined in theme.kt isn't showing in my physical device (debugging)

Issue

I’ve defined my theme for the app to dynamic color (Material You). But whenever I run the app in my physical device, which supports Material You and it’s turned on from settings, it don’t follow the theme. All elements are in purple, even when changing the wallpaper. Futher more in Dark mode too it shows White Background and same purple.

In demo func I’ve a Filled Tonal Icon Botton & Dropdown Meny Item containg 5 Menu Items with 4-5 char long texts.

I’m using Android Studio Dolphine in Gruda Linux. Both Updated.

I’m using Material 3 with Material You in Jetpack compose and using icons from material (google fints)

Screenshots:

  • Material You is turned on:

  • In light Mode:

  • In dark mode

If you find any typo please update it or tell me to fix.

PS: This is my second time here posting and I have an almost zero experience on android development and Kotlin. I developed terminal apps and worked on ML kinda work in Python, C++, C. So I may need more information in explanation. I started learning Android Development a week ago only.

You can ask me any more information.

And Sorry for very long post. I wanted to include everything to speed up.

Peace ✌🏽

Solution

It got fixed automatically. After 2 days it suddenly changed to device dynamical color. I don’t know changed it but it’s no longer problem. So I’m closing this question.
