Although most of Android 8.0 Oreo’s upgrades are behind-the-scenes, there are several new user facing tools and features. One of which is the ability to have a phone or tablet automatically turn the Wi-Fi connection back on when the device is near a high-quality saved network…

How to turn on Wi-Fi automatically

  1. Go to your device’s Settings menu
  2. Locate and select Network & Internet
  3. Tap into Wi-Fi
  4. Scroll down and enter into Wi-Fi preferences
  5. Toggle on Turn on Wi-Fi automatically

Unfortunately, this won’t automatically turn off your Wi-Fi when you step away from a high-quality network.
