One thought on “How To Change Icon Of Your Android App In Android Studio”

  1. I tried this and also many other things I found on the NET !!!!
    but , ALL THIS IS NOT WORKING !!!!!

    So , by trial and error I came to the following conclusions :
    – The ICON is not picked up from the .png files in the @mipmap directories !!!!!!!
    – The ICON is created from the .XML files in the @mipmap-anydpi so it uses : foreground.png
    – SO : – changing the .XML file ( ie. delete background line ) has some effect !!!!!!!!
    – Making a drawing in the center of : foreground.png also works !!!!!!
    – If I remove the @mipmap-anydpi directory , the tool makes a SMALL copy of my icon !!!!!!

    HOW can I make the tool to pick up my .png icons ???????
