Design and Ecosystem: 🎨
As we continued bringing Unique experiences, we did lots of work on System-wide theming. we have upgraded Monetwanna to 2.1 with numerous Improvements and fixes We believe these enhancements will bring delightful experiences for our end users.
- The MonetWannabe 2.2
We made a brand-new wallpaper-based system engine, something like Google’s Monet Engine - so we called it MonetWannabe. Prior to this release we implemented only the accent color generation, but we planned on a complete system palette dynamic generation, with a possibility to support Live Wallpapers. Now, with 5.2 we moved to a more competent color generation engine, the one made by kdrag0n(The Creator of ProtonAOSP) and Android 12 Extension Module. We took it's latest engine update (the one with zcam based color generation) and integrated it inside MonetCompat. With the help of MonetCompat and MonetWannabe hook we managed to bring a true Monet-like experience.🙌

We have redesigned it again. Now it’s more clear and optimised for MonetWannabe themeing.
- Gaming Mode 🎮
Yes we are bringing Gaming Mode in 5.2 release, which has capability to auto detect games and disables some functionality which disturbes for Gamers.
