How to get Dynamic Island feature on any Android device

So as we made an article about getting the Dynamic Island on MIUI devices with a theme, now there is a better way to do it using an app. It is compatible with all android devices and not just MIUI and it is not a theme. The app takes some small steps to set it up to get it running, and it is quite easy configure it later on.

The app is named dynamicSpot, and it is free on Play Store along with a pro version inside to unlock more features. But pro isn’t that much required if you’re not onto customizing it that much and want something just running.

Setup the app

Open the app, and tap next. Choose the apps you want the app to work with for e.g the notifications or music players. In our case we are choosing all apps. You can choose alll apps or only few, it’s based on your preference.

Then allow the notification access for the app so it will show you the notifications in dynamic island whenever there is any. But, this does not stop the system heads-up. So, disable that in settings as well.

Then last but not least, allow the app to draw over the screen so it can show you the dynamic island on top of any other app. And with that, you’re done!

Features

When you’re playing something like a music, the app will show a small overlay on top of your screen like so.

The app also supports the phones without a punch-hole, such as the phones with notches. You can adjust it’s dimensions in settings. As you can see in the picture above, the phone has a notch so we put it in the right below the status bar.

You can hold on the dynamic island to expand it to see more details, as you can see above.

Same case also applies for notifications. You can hold the dynamic island to expand them as well.

Settings

The app has many settings inside as well, all for you to adjust it however you like. You can use behavior section to change how dynamic island works, use position section to change it’s position for phone with notch as example like how we did above, and more!

The app supports most of the android devices, although some of them decides to kill the app for it’s ram management. You can find guides here about each phone/software to how to make it stop from killing the app.
