With the recently released Windows 10 build 14366, Microsoft seems to be adding a long overdue feature. Starting with this build, Universal apps can have colored title bars. Here is how they look.
For those apps which don't have a hardcoded title bar color, Windows 10 Anniversary Update will use the accent color if the user has enabled showing color for title bars in Settings -> Personalization.
In my case, Windows Store and Settings apps respect the accent color, whereas other apps like Calculator or People which have a developer-specific color ignore it. So, only apps whose developers have not hardcoded a specific title bar color will show the user-chosen title bar color.
Upd.: it looks like this feature also exists in build 14361. Thanks to @evil_pro for this tip!
You can try it in action.
- Open Settings.
- Go to Personalization -> Colors.
- Enable the option Show color on title bar:
The following video shows this new option in detail:

Do you like the addition of color to the title bar for Universal apps? Don't you think that when enabled, it should override the app's own title bar color set by the developer to make the appearance consistent?
