Android 12 debuted with the launch of the Pixel 6 series last month, and users have been using it for a while now. Among the various newly-added features and design tweaks, Android 12 has introduced a new “Internet” menu in the control panel. This new Internet menu contains the options for both your Wi-Fi and mobile data. However, some users are not liking this change and want to get back the old separate Wi-Fi toggle on their devices running Android 12. Here’s how you restore the Wi-Fi toggle in Android 12 without using the ADB command.
If you’re someone who doesn’t want this change and want to get separate toggles for the Wi-Fi and mobile data, here’s an easy way to bring them back on your device. But before we go there let’s know what the new “Internet” button is in Android 12?
The new Internet button in the Quick Settings menu of Android 12 replaces the original Wi-Fi and mobile data toggles and puts both of them in one place. Now, users need to do one swipe and three taps to turn off the Wi-Fi on their devices, which may be frustrating for users who toggle their Wi-Fi frequently. So here we bring you a simple way to restore the Wi-Fi toggle that has existed for years.
How to Restore the Wi-Fi Toggle in Android 12
There are multiple ways to do this, which include the ADB command and the Tasker application. But here is an alternate method to restore the Wi-Fi toggle in Android 12. First of all, you need to download an APK called “Wi-Fi QS” on your device from GitHub. Once installed, open the Quick Settings panel and tap edit to find inactive/hidden tiles. Find the one titled “Wi-Fi QS” and drag it to the top, as shown in the attached image. That’s it. Now you can turn on/off the Wi-Fi with a single tap.
It’s worth noting that you will not see what Wi-Fi hotspot your device is connected to. If you want to see the connected network, you need to provide location access to the Wi-Fi QS app from the app settings. You can do this by going to your device’s settings and finding Wi-Fi QS in Apps. Tap the permissions option and provide the location access. It’ll now start showing the connected network when you swipe down from the top.
It’s a simple and easy workaround to restore the Wi-Fi toggle in Android 12, especially for users who are not tech-savvy.
