[Feature] Themed icons for Android 13

Use case or problem

Obsidian was one of the few apps to have a themed icon when I was on Android 12.

It however doesn’t appear to have a themed icon after upgrading to Android 13.

Proposed solution

It’s possible that Android 13 requires a different implementation for themed icons.

Here is Tasks’ implementation for the same:
Monochrome icons

After this, they have a working themed icon in Android 13, as seen in the screenshot above.

We didn’t do anything to support themed icons in Android 12 nor did anything for Android 13.

Would it be possible to do though?

Is this the right way to go about making a feature request or are those tracked somewhere else?

So, from the looks of it, all we would need is adding <monochrome android:drawable="@mipmap/ic_launcher_foreground"/> in ic_launcher.xml?

Can someone more experienced in Android development confirm?

Im also interested in this, as obsidian is one of the apps where i am missing said themed icon. Is this somehow possible?

+1 for themed icon support.
