You’ll Need Android Version 5.0 Or Later To Use This Feature, Adaptive Icons Feature Has Also Some Problems. Because Some Apps Are Unsupported And Their Icon Style Would Not Be Change.

To Avoid This Problem, You Can Turn On Mask Legacy Icons Option That Will Force Apps To Change Their Icon Style. This Will Also Add A Background Color To Apps In App Drawer Which I Don’t Like. However, Some Supported Apps Look Great With New Icon Style.
