Android 12 makes it harder to turn Wi-Fi on and off

In connection with the release of Android 12 Beta 2 a couple of weeks ago, Google announced a new internet panel in the quick settings, which replaces the buttons for Wi-Fi and mobile data. The Internet panel is now live.

When you press the new Internet button in the quick settings, a small box will appear at the bottom, on top of the home screen. Unfortunately, the Internet panel makes it harder to turn on and off both Wi-Fi and mobile data. Most people probably want to be able to enable and disable Wi-Fi with a single tap.

For example, to be connected at home, with Wi-Fi turned off away from home to reduce energy consumption a bit. As the internet panel works in Android 12 Beta 2.1, three taps are required to turn off Wi-Fi.

First a press of the Internet button in the quick settings, then a gear from the pop-up menu, which leads to a completely separate screen where Wi-Fi can be deactivated with a third press. Another disadvantage of the Internet panel is that it is not immediately possible to make further changes to the quick settings, as the user is thrown out of them.

Hopefully the internet panel will be honed before sharp Android 12, because it’s hard not to see the current implementation as a deterioration.
