Quick settings available

There are a ton of quick settings to choose from. You can select quick settings from three categories: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and mobile data is one category. The other two are Location & Account and Device, Display & Sound. Here is the full list of options:

Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and mobile data

Location and account

Device, display and sound

Now that you know all the options available, here are nine of our favorites.

1. Molded screen

Casting your Android screen lets you mirror your Android device to the TV so you can enjoy your content exactly as you see it on your mobile device, only bigger.

2. Nearby Sharing

It’s kind of like the Android version of an Apple AirDrop. You can share files, images and links wirelessly with any other nearby Android device.

3. Live Caption

Live Caption automatically captions speech on your device. You can use it on media like videos, podcasts, phone calls, video calls, and audio messages.

4. Data saver

To help use less mobile data with a limited data plan, you can enable data saver. This mode allows most apps and services to get background data only over Wi-Fi. Currently active apps and services can use mobile data.

5. Screen recording

Screen recording allows you to take a photo (screenshot) or record a video of your phone screen. After capturing your screen, you can view, edit, and share the image or video.

6. Focus mode

Focus mode lets you select apps to temporarily pause. Use it to disable a distracting app to do something important. You can also set a schedule to automatically activate focus mode.

7. Bedtime Mode

When it’s time for bed, Bedtime Mode helps you tune out. Schedule it for your bedtime, so it runs automatically. Or when you charge your phone.

8. Battery Sharing

Battery Share turns your Android device into a reverse wireless charging solution. Use it to charge other smartphones from all major gaming manufacturers or even devices like headphones.

REMARK: This is extremely taxing on your phone’s battery power. But, if you only have access to one charger, it can be used to share love effectively.

9. Alarm

Finally an all time classic. The Alarm tile was introduced with Android 12 and gives you another way to check all current alarms. Easy access, all without the cluttered and hard to discern display of yesteryear.
