How to Change Color of LED Light for Gmail Android


The Android operating system does not allow you to customize the LED indicator color for different applications. If you want to set a custom color for the Gmail app, you will need to install third-party software from the Android Market. Not all apps support Gmail, and some apps only support certain devices. The Light Flow app allows you to set a customized color for Gmail, and works with several Android device models.

  • Open the Application screen and touch "Market."

  • Tap the magnifying glass icon to open the search screen.

  • Type "Light Flow" and tap the magnifying glass icon, or press "Enter."

  • Touch the version of Light Flow you want to install. The paid version supports some applications the free version does not. Both the free and paid versions support Gmail.

  • Touch "Download" if you are installing the free version, or the price button if you are installing the paid version. Tap "Accept & Download" to install the app.

  • Touch "Open" once the app is finished installing. The app will prompt you to enable it under the "Accessibility" menu.

  • Touch "OK" and the app will take you to the menu. Check the "Accessibility" box and check "Light Flow." Press the back button to return to the previous menu.

  • Touch "Notifications" and tap "Gmail."

  • Touch "Notification Color" to select the LED color. You can also customize the duration under "Light duration"

  • Test the LED by pressing the back button twice and tapping "Tools." Touch "All Enabled LEDs Test" and the app will send a dummy notification to the phone. Some phones require switching off the screen to enable the LED.

Tips & Warnings

  • Some Android devices do not have an LED. Others have LEDs that only support certain colors. Some require root access to change the LED settings. Check with the manufacturer of the device to see if your device supports LED colors and which colors are supported.
