Android lollipop change navigation bar color

The Solution to Android lollipop change navigation bar color is


It can be done inside styles.xml using

<item name="android:navigationBarColor">@color/theme_color</item>

or

window.setNavigationBarColor(@ColorInt int color)

http://developer.android.com/reference/android/view/Window.html#setNavigationBarColor(int)

Note that the method was introduced in Android Lollipop and won't work on API version < 21.

The second method (works on KitKat) is to set windowTranslucentNavigation to true in the manifest and place a colored view beneath the navigation bar.
