Google Considering Customizable Quick Settings for Android L

Google Considering Customizable Quick Settings for Android L

Quick–without thinking too much, come up with a short list of your five to ten favorite features found in custom ROMs. Chances are, one of these is the ability to customize your Quick Settings toggles. I’d even be willing to argue that for most people this is near or at the top of the list–aside from root access, of course.

Just two days ago, we talked about how Google was considering the possibility of changing the way external SD cards are handled in the final Android L release this Fall. Now, we have learned that Google is also contemplating adding a customizable Quick Settings interface in the final Android L release this Fall.

Just like the news on SD card handling, news of this possible feature addition comes courtesy of the Android L developer preview issue tracker. The initial request was made nine days ago, and it was then “Acknowledged” on the 4th and “Accepted” as “feature-16186589” yesterday.

While no concrete information is available just yet regarding how this will be accomplished–or even if it will be added–it’s certainly encouraging to see a feature number attached to this user request. Would you like to see a customizable Quick Settings interface in the final Android L release, or does this feature not matter much to you? Let us know in the comments below.
