Wi-Fi is definitely everywhere and helps save mobile data on Android device. For example, Google Play store has this option to automatically update apps when connected to a Wi-Fi network, same as that WhatsApp immediately saves videos (perhaps you can control them). So it happens that you shift between some areas, such as from home to office, cafe, friends home than home. Chances are you have a strong Wi-Fi network at your Home, so you’d probably want your telephone to automatically connect to your Wi-Fi network as soon as you come home.
The new Android Oreo is frankly new, and only some of the Google products are currently officially supported. But we have seen unofficial Android Oreo ports for popular products. In the AOSP supply code in Google android Oreo, there are these lines that enable the option that reads “Turn on Wifi automatically”.
But this isn’t natively enabled on Android Oreo, at least not in Google Nexus gadgets running Oreo. Which means you need some extra time and a notebook to allow this useful feature, stick to these step by step instructions.
Required Step: Install ADB and Fastboot drivers on your computer
Enable USB debugging on your phone:
Now connect your mobile phone to computer via an USB cable. Open the ADB & Fastboot folder, press and hold the Shift key and then right-click and select “open order prompt from here” this will open the command prompt from the folder location. Alternatively, you can open up an Order prompt and use the “cd /” control to set the directory, and it should be the ADB & fastboot driver folder.
Now you can type the following order to determine if your mobile phone is connected to your PC and is recognized.
- Adb devices
If you see a device name, well done go ahead and type the following command. Type the initial command to make the option available in your Oreo than the second one to make it visible in Wifi settings.
- adb shell
- settings put global wifi_wakeup_available 1
- settings place global wifi_wakeup_enabled 1
Now check in Wifi – Wi-Fi preference, you see a brand-new option to turn on WiFi automatically.
To disable the choice again.
- adb shell
- settings put global wifi_wakeup_available 0
- settings place global wifi_wakeup_enabled 0
