A while ago, we reported that custom themes may be coming to Android 8.0 Oreo without the need for rooting your device. We are happy to report back that this seems to be the case, although the ability to do so is not quite “native”, in that it requires a third-party app and a PC connection.

Seeing as how this has been one of the major incentives to get your phone rooted in the past, it only makes sense that Google finally implements this functionality into Android.
