Today, Google announced that new Android Oreo 8.1 update will now display the speed of nearby open Wi-Fi networks. Instead of showing exact bandwidth, Wi-Fi Settings Menu will display signal strength. However, it should help you decide between networks that are worth connecting to.

Google has divided the Network Speed into four categories:

  • Slow
  • OK
  • Fast
  • Very Fast

According to Google, each signal strength varies in speed, Fast would be fine for most of the videos and with Very Fast you can stream very high-quality videos. That means you might want to avoid “Slow” and “OK” for streaming videos. Further with OK signal strength you can open basic webpages, use social media, and stream music.


The feature is expected to roll out to 8.1 users this week.

Google says, Just in case if users don’t want to see network speed, they can easily disable it by choosing Network rating provider as None in the Advanced tab under Wi-Fi Preferences.
