Wifi Icon Issue

Before some days, when I click on wifi icon, it is getting started from below to top and then wi-fi is on. But. now when I just touch the icon of wi-fi, it is getting started. How I can make my phone behave like previous? If you are not clear with my saying you can take example of bluetooth icon. Like bluetooth icon, I want my wi-fi icon to behave. How I can achieve that, plz help me?

Hi and welcome to the community! Since you're new please be sure that you have checked out our Discussion guidelines.

 

Do you mean the animation of the icon itself while it's turning on? There's no setting for this, the bluetooth icon has a animation while the WiFi icon doesn't.

Re: Wifi Icon Issue

I'm afraid i can't see if this was changed in the latest software update but there's no setting that enables animation for the WiFi icon. If i check on other models we have with Android 4.4 like Z2 it's not animated there either.

Re: Wifi Icon Issue

The Wi-Fi icon will only be animated if you disable "Scanning always available".

 

Go to Settings | Wi-Fi | Menu (three dots at the bottom right | Advanced.

 

Then untick "Scanning always available".

 

This will not only animate the Wi-Fi icon but will also do some good for your battery life.

 

P.S.: At least it works like that for my Z1 compact. I didn't notice at first that I was posting in another board.

Re: Wifi Icon Issue

Yes you can animate WiFi symbol like how the above person said he is correct you need to just go to your Settings>WiFi>Advanced and untick "Scanning always available" option this should definitely work for you

 

but i still dont understand what difference it is going to make with just a minor animation right?
