Microsoft is developing a native RGB lighting effect management tool for the Win11 system–Dynamic Lighting so that users can control the lighting effects of peripherals without installing third-party applications.
@XenoPanther tweeted on X (Twitter) a few days ago, saying that under the Dynamic Lighting option of the Win11 system settings application, a new “Match my Windows accent color” (Note: Match my Windows theme color) option has been added.
Brandon LeBlanc, a senior program manager for Microsoft’s Windows Insider project team, also tweeted later that the option had been introduced in previous preview versions, but it was not included in the changelog.
Dynamic Lighting provides users and developers with the experience of natively controlling lighting effects devices (which must comply with the HID LampArray standard).
Microsoft said it will work with OEMs and ODMs to deploy open standards, improve device and application interoperability, and improve users’ RGB device and software ecosystems.
Win11 applications can control the device in the foreground or background by calling the API. Users can also customize how the device behaves in Windows Settings.
Microsoft said that it has already cooperated with several equipment manufacturers including Acer, Asus, HP, HyperX, Logitech, Razer and Twinkly, and will further expand the scale in the future.
