Step by Step Implementation

Step 1: Go to the AndroidManifest.xml file

Go to the app > manifests > AndroidManifest.xml file and change the android:label field in your application node in AndroidManifest.xml.

As we can see in the Manifest.xml file that the attribute android:label = “@string/app_name” has its value stored in the strings.xml file when we change the value from the strings.xml file the apps name would change.

Step 2: Go to the strings.xml file

Go to the app > res > values > strings.xml file as shown in the below image. 

In this file we have a string name as app_name it is the string resource that holds the current app name which is passed in the Manifest.xml file’s application tag inside the label attribute. So we change this string resources value to My_App.

Output:

Before

After
