Customize Colors for iOS

The UI SDK automatically brands the app with a default color scheme. You can customize this color scheme in your app by creating color sets in your Assets catalog using the SDK's token names.

Test any color customizations in light and dark mode.

You can customize colors using generic branding tokens such as “primary color” or “secondary color.” Or you can customize each individual element in the UI using detailed branding tokens such as “sent bubble background color.”

The generic tokens are better if you want to update the colors across the entire app with just a few changes. The detailed tokens are better if you want full control over the colors for each UI element. When you modify the detailed tokens, it overrides the generic branding token colors for the specific elements that you modify.

Generic branding tokens Generic branding tokens for pre-chat

Use these tokens to adjust the colors of the app to match your product's brand.
