Moto g4 notifications on home screen black

2020-05-12, 9:43 AM
This morning when I looked at my phone I noticed the notifications at the top of the home screen are all black instead of white. They are white on all other screens. Yesterday ok, today changed. How to fix? I can't see the black

Try a quick soft reboot/reset.

 

Press and hold the Power button in for 10/15 seconds until the phone reboots. This can clear little glitches like this as it emulates taking the Battery out.

 

 

HTH :)

Yes, this is somewhat widespread --i got to this thread from a Google: https://support.google.com/android/thread/46194628?hl=en 

 

Where a bunch of us are having the same problem, and it started today. This did not help me either. 

 

And additional detail (in my case): when i first unlock the phone the status bar is while --then changes to this black after a moment. It stays white in apps and on lock screen. Just black on Home screen.

Hi,

 

Thanks for posting and lettings us know. Can you share us a screenshot to understand it better?

 

Also, try changing the wallpaper of your home screen and see if it is changing with the wallpaper.

 

Let me know how it goes.

 

Regards,

Suman

I've been getting exactly the same since this morning on my Moto G4.  Changing wallpaper and putting phone into safe mode doesn't make any difference.  It's very difficult to read the text and icons.

I have this problem too on a moto x pure. The problem seems to be related to an update for the Google app. An update went out the other day and it coincides with the time that the problem first appeared. If you uninstall all updates for the Google app, the icons return to their normal colors.
