Android 8.1 will now tell you the speed of a Wi-Fi network before you connect to it

Android Oreo brings new features like picture-in-picture and notification dots, and now Google has confirmed another new feature for Oreo.



Google tells that it’s now rolling out a new feature to Android 8.1 users that’ll show the speed of public Wi-Fi networks before you connect to them. There are four different speeds that can be displayed and a description of what you can expect to do with each:
  • Slow: If you can use Wi-Fi calling, you can make phone calls and send texts.
  • OK: You can read webpages, use social media, and stream music.
  • Fast: You can stream most videos.
  • Very Fast: You can stream very high-quality videos.
It can be pretty frustrating when you jump onto a Wi-Fi network to get faster speeds and save some cellular data, only to try to load a web page and find that your connection is crawling. Now Android 8.1 users can immediately identify the speediest Wi-Fi connection or decide to stick to cellular if all of the available Wi-Fi networks are slow.
