Better WiFi and Bluetooth toggles

A tipster for Android Police has pointed out that the update includes much-improved WiFi and Bluetooth toggles. While the quick toggles menu in the notification shade previously only allowed you to toggle WiFi and Bluetooth on and off, Android 5.1 allows users a little more functionality. Tapping the “Wi-Fi” label or the “Bluetooth” labels will take you to the respective settings menus as before, and there’s also little arrow next to those labels that let you pick the WiFi network or Bluetooth device that you’d like to connect to.
