Check How to Bring Back Wi-Fi Toggle in Quick Settings on your Android 12 Device

In this article, we will show you the steps to restore Wi-Fi toggle in quick settings on Android 12 devices. The twelfth iteration of Android has bought a lot of new and intriguing features. Among them, the new Material You theming style has become the talk of the town. The complete redesign of the user interface was received very positively. However, there are some changes that may not be appreciated in the same way. One of them is the changes in the Wi-Fi quick settings. Until now (up to Android 11), you could easily enable/disable WiFi just by tapping the icon in quick settings.

And when you want to access the WiFi settings menu, all you have to do is press and hold it. However, with Android 12, Google removed the ability to turn Wi-Fi on and off directly from quick settings. Instead you now get a new minimized WiFi menu where you can disable/enable WiFi or switch networks. What’s wrong with it? Well, two things. First of all, now you need to take an extra step to enable or disable WiFi on Android 12.

How to get Wi-Fi toggle back in quick settings on Android 12

Use ADB to toggle Wi-Fi back on Android 12

  • Open the command prompt at the root of your ADB installation. To do this, type cmd in the File Explorer address bar. If you configured ADB in your system’s PATH variable to work anywhere, you can skip this step and directly open a command prompt window.
  • Connect your phone to your PC and allow USB debugging permission from the message that appears. If you haven’t enabled USB debugging yet, go to Settings -> Developer options -> USB debugging on your phone to turn it on. To make sure your device has connected successfully, run the adb devices command.
  • Now, paste the following command into the command prompt and hit the Enter key:
    • adb shell config set secure sysui_qs_tiles “$(configuration becomes secure sysui_qs_tiles), wifi, cellular”
  • You will now see dedicated Wi-Fi and mobile data switches on the last page of the Quick Settings panel. To bring them to the front, hit the pencil icon at the bottom of the Quick Settings panel.
  • Touch and drag Wi-Fi and mobile data to switch to the top. To avoid redundancy, you can choose to move the “Internet” switch to the inactive tiles area.
  • And there you have it. You can now enjoy dedicated switches for Wi-Fi and mobile data on your Android 12 phone.

Use the Tasker project to get Wi-Fi back on Android 12

Before we proceed to the step-by-step process, here are all the apps and files you need to download before proceeding.

Tasker and other download requirements

  • Tasker: If you’re an advanced user, you’ve probably already purchased Tasker. In case you are hearing it for the first time, Tasker is a powerful automation app that you can use to set rules and automate tasks on your Android phone. Tasker has been around for over 10 years, and in fact, we’ve written several guides on using Tasker and AutoTools with Tasker in the past. Although the original developer quit in 2018, developer João Dias took over the project and actively maintains the app. You can purchase Tasker from the Play Store or opt for the 7-day free trial before making your purchase decision.
  • AutoNotification: Once you’ve downloaded Tasker, it’s time to download AutoNotification. We will use AutoNotification for the new Wi-Fi switch that is set to replace the Internet switch. Unlike Tasker, you can download AutoNotification for free from the Play Store.
  • Tasker Configuration – Another application required to run this setup is Tasker Configuration. So what exactly is Tasker settings? Starting with Android 10, Google stopped allowing apps to change Wi-Fi state. This applies to apps targeting API level 29 (Android 10) and higher. That’s where Tasker’s settings come into play. It points to API level 21 (Android 5.0 Lollipop) as a solution. In a nutshell, install the Tasker Settings app from GitHub to allow Tasker to change Wi-Fi status. This is an important step and the switch won’t work unless you install the Tasker setup.
