We’ve covered the ways to customize your phone with developer options before, but now I’d like to take the time and explain how to change your quick settings on your Android device’s notification bar. I’m going to use the Nexus 6P and stock Android as an example, and while some manufacturer ROMs might be the same they will generally differ on the process.
How to customize quick settings in Android
First, swipe down to reveal your notification bar, then swipe down again to expand it. You’ll see a small gear icon on the top right side – tap on that and hold it for a couple of seconds. The wheel will start to turn and you’ll be prompted with a message saying that the System UI Tuner has been activated on your phone.
Just like in the screenshot you can see above on the right, the System UI Tuner will appear as a separate section in your Settings menu. Tap on it and you’ll be greeted by a message saying:
“System UI Tuner gives you extra ways to tweak and customize the Android user interface. These experimental features may change, break, or disappear in future releases. Proceed with caution.”
So while the functions might change or break, they won’t do so to your phone. Once you click “Got it” you’ll be able to access the entire set settings the System UI Tuner allows you to mess around with. The first one, at the top, is where you can edit the Quick Settings, so tap on it.
You can move the individual settings around and arrange them however you want, and you can remove any one of the settings by tapping on it and dragging it away from the quick settings area.
And that’s it! There’s no need to save your progress, the changes should automatically appear on your phone.
