Feature Update on Android 5.1: Minor UI Tweaks making it more usable

Google has just decided to make things a little simpler for all those who were really annoyed with the way the toggles were handled in Android Lollipop. From the latest images that have been obtained about the notification shade, the visible change is in the way Bluetooth and Wifi Toggles work.

While earlier, clicking the Wifi or Bluetooth symbol toggled the service on or off, we had to either click the text to get to the list of other networks or devices in order to change. As a welcome upgrade, Google has now put a small arrow indicating a drop down which would allow you to select other networks or other nearby devices. The gear icon can still be used to go into the complete Settings menu.
