android 5-1 toggles cropped

While we aren’t expecting a ton of changes in Android 5.1 Lollipop in terms of new features, there is one change that we’ll definitely come to appreciate once Google finally delivers a widespread rollout. It’s the new Bluetooth and WiFi toggles in the notifications bar that will now show you a list of available networks and connections inline instead of kicking you out to the settings app.

Someone who got their hands on one of the Android One phones equipped with the feature put together a quick screen capture of what it’s like to use it. Nothing very exciting or surprising here, but it’s nice to see the feature in action when all we’ve had to this point are screen grabs.

Now, if only Google would get a move on announcing the details about this forthcoming upgrade (which we hear will be arriving at some point next month).
