The latest version of Android, Marshmallow allows you to edit the shortcuts that are available in your Quick Settings Panel along with the options that are available on the Status Bar. This task can be done with the help of System UI Tuner. But the question is where you can find this option? This option is hidden in Android v6.0 like certain other options such as Developer Options Screen and Android’s Easter Egg. It is quite impossible to locate this option without an external help. Well I am ready to help. Just follow the below instructions to customize your quick settings and status bar with the help of System UI Tuner.
Enable Hidden UI Tuner
The primary task to customize quick settings is to access the hidden System UI Tuner. This can be enabled by dragging the notification panel from the top of your Android device’s display. Then you have press on the Gear Icon, which is placed in the middle of battery indicator and profile picture for some time, say 10 seconds. Just tap and hold it till starts to rotate. Release it when the notification pops-up saying, Congrats System UI Tuner has been added to Settings.
Open System UI Tuner
After enabling the System UI Tuner, you can find it by tapping on Settings App. There you can find System UI Tuner option just below About Phone or About Tablet. Select this option to access those options which were earlier invisible. When you tap on the option and open it, Google will warn you with certain messages which may say that these features may alter, break or disappear in future releases. Proceed with caution. This is so because certain options are meant to be available only to developers. Likewise System UI Tuner is meant to be used by Android pioneers and gurus.
Edit Quick Settings and Status Bar
Since it is the first release of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, there are only limited options available in Quick Settings Panel. You are allowed to edit the options like notifications that appear when you drag it from the top of the display, edit the items on Status Bar, Battery power that appears on battery icon and allowing Demo Mode. The Quick Settings also permit you to order the tiles that already appear, move away certain tiles that you don’t want any more and also insert certain new ones. Whenever you want to set these as appeared default, all you have to do is to select Reset, from MenuOption.The Status Bar screen gives you an option to conceal certain options also. You are allowed to conceal certain options like Hotspot, Cast, Do Not Disturb, Bluetooth, Work Profile, Alarm, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Airplane Mode and Cellular Data, so that they don’t get crowded in your Status Bar.The option of Show Embedded Battery Percentage, enhances battery option by showing it on Status Bar. It now helps the user to know the exact charge left in the battery without dragging the notification panel or selecting the battery option. By enabling the Demo Mode, the Status Bar will get automatically washed up, and displays no notification, full WiFi, maximum battery power, full cellular tower strength and the time is always displayed as 6.00. Don’t get panic. This is just a gimmick like a visual magic. Everything gets back to normal when you Disable Demo Mode.It is expected that Google may bring out more changes in its future updations. They may add or remove certain options. But users don’t have to worry about it, since, Google has always tried to embed more options with the help of which users can enjoy flawless functioning of their device rather than getting troubled.
