OreoGoogle has started rolling out the Android Oreo officially from December 2017. The company is working on various new features on the latest Android operating system. In addition to that, a new feature for Wi-Fi was added in the latest update. Google has confirmed the new feature in a tweet. According to Google, the new feature will display the network speed of Wi-Fi networks before connecting to them.

Google has differentiated the Wi-Fi Network Speed under the below four categories.

  • Slow – If you can use Wi-Fi calling, you can make phone calls and send texts.
  • OK – You can read web pages, use social media and stream music.
  • Fast – You can stream most videos.
  • Very Fast – You can stream very high-quality videos.

If you don’t want to see network speed, it can be disabled under Wi-Fi preferences settings. Android Oreo users, do wait for the official OTA update on your device to have the latest feature.
