Google is rolling out a new feature for Android 8.1, which shows users the speed of a Wi-Fi network before they connect to it.
In the past, the signal strength of Wi-Fi networks was visible to users, but they did not know what speeds the networks offered.
The latest Android update shows the connection speed under the names of the networks.
- Slow (0-1Mbps): Wi-Fi calling, send texts.
- OK (1-5Mbps): Read webpages, use social media, stream music.
- Fast (5-20Mbps): Stream video.
- Very Fast (Over 20Mbps): Stream high-quality videos.
There is an option to disable the service in Android if you do not wish to see the speeds.
