    A while ago I was on my Surface Pro 2 and I realized when I closed out apps the background when I would drag apps to the bottom of the screen was cyan. I though it was a glitch so before restarting my Surface I went into the setting to check for an update. While doing so the theme or color in the settings changed from gray which I had it set on to cyan. This scared me so I held the power button to shut down my Surface. After it restarted it was still the same so I went to preferences on the charm bar and changed it to gray. After doing that I picked up my Nokia Lumia Icon to check if I had any notifications and my theme was set to Steel. After realizing what happened and being confused I started messing with it. Anyways I realized that when you change your Theme on WP it can change it on your Windows 8 tablet too.

    My Icon is running the Preview For Developers or WP8.1
    My Surface Pro 2 is running Windows 8.1 update 1
    They were both connected to the same network when this happened.

    Can anyone else replicate this?

    Here's a link to a picture I posted on instagram. Instagram

    Check out settings->sync my settings

    on your Icon. If you have "Theme" set to "On", you'll have your theme synced with your other Win 8 devices.
    xandros9 and Microsoft1080 like this.

    Yeah I thought it only changed the phones theme, I was surprised to see the changes on my surface as well.

    Thank you I had forgotten all about that setting. I still like the theme's synced so I'll probably leave it. Just thought this was interesting.

    This is a small but very cool feature, cant wait to Sync my Pro 2 with my to-be WP in the future.

    I'm not sure what you're asking here as it's already available, you just have to be using Windows 8.1 and WP8.1!!!
