android – can't change the textsize of the thumb of SwitchCompat widget

Questions:

I am having a hard time to change the text size of a switch compact thumb.

Here’s my layout:

<android.support.v7.widget.SwitchCompat
    android:id="@+id/switch_compat2"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_margin="20dp"
    android:checked="true"
    android:switchTextAppearance="@style/MyStyle"
    android:text="SwitchCompat (SDK v7+)"
    app:showText="true" />

and the style:

<style name="MyStyle">
    <item name="android:textColor">#229922</item>
    <item name="android:textSize">10sp</item>
</style>

yet, no matter what I do on “MyStyle”, the switch always look like this:

Ideally I want have it look like this:

enter image description here

Anyone would be willing to share their drawables to I can try to match the image above?

I am looking into these threads but not matching properly. It is making it look worse.
