Android Task Manager Color


If You want change your Ionic 2 app’s color in Android 5+ Task Manager (recent apps), you need install [cordova-plugin-recentscontrol]
( and then go to config.xml and insert this code

<preference name="RecentsBackgroundColor" value="#FFCC00" />
<preference name="RecentsDescription" value="App Name" />



Very nice! Thanks for sharing this :smile:


This plugin was working before i installed crossawalk into ionic 2 android platform,
Now its showing blue color and default app name in recents tab after crosswalk.

Any workaround for enabling recents app in crosswalk enabled android??


Well, i was able to get the Name working after changing App Name from config file, but no luck for tabs color so far…
