Earlier when the mobile operating systems was emerging, the blended status bar was what every android users where excited to lay their hands on but Google failed to implement this features on stock android. The dynamic status bar incorporates color code in other to blend with the currently running app on your rooted android device.

However “perfect Color bar” was the first xposed module that I’ve found that makes any android device look even more beautiful without taking a toll on it’s performance. The module can make the status bar and navigation bar on your android device transparent. Thus if you want to get ahead of the curve and get the dynamic status bar feature on your lollipop, marshmallow and nougat android device, follow the below speculates guides.
