Android 5.1 will let you switch WiFi and Bluetooth networks from the Quick Settings menu

Android 5.1 WiFi

Android 5.1 was confirmed to be legitimate today, thanks to a revelation made by Android One devices in Indonesia. A new report is now shedding some light on the features this update would bring.

It is revealed that the update will finally allow users to switch WiFi or Bluetooth networks directly from the swipe down Quick Settings menu, thus saving the trouble of having to open the settings every time you want to connect to a new network.

This is a minor feature, but a significant one nonetheless. This version of Android is only running on a select bunch of budget Android One smartphones in Indonesia, but it goes without saying that Google will also send out the update to its Nexus lineup of devices.

There’s no word on when that might happen, but considering what we’ve seen in the past, users might be in for some waiting. Expect the likes of the Nexus 6, Nexus 9, Nexus 5 and the 2013 Nexus 7 to be the first in line to get the update.

There’s no word on whether Google will issue this update to the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 (2012). But considering that they’re running on Android 5.0 already, we don’t see why they will be left out from the action.
