How to customize quick settings tiles in Android 12?

One of the things we like about the best Android phones is the quick settings. Android 12 really emphasized those tiles, making them significantly larger and easier to manage on your phone. They are also easy to edit and customize in terms of layout and order.

Quick settings can give you access to system functions, such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, or they can access phone functions such as a flashlight or screen recording. From toggling do not disturb to airplane mode and focus mode (and other digital wellness modes), the quick settings make it quick and easy to adjust to your pace or change your phone settings for the moment. Whatever the case, the layout will be important, so we'll show you how to set it up.

How to customize quick settings tiles in Android 12?

  • It's easy to organize the Quick Settings tiles.

  • Swipe the notification panel down twice so that it is fully open. Tap the pencil icon in the lower-left corner

  • Touch and hold any quick setting tile you want to move and drag it where you want it to appear.

Notes on moving mosaics

When you're setting up your tiles, it's important to note that the first four tiles (two in each column) will be visible when you first drag the notification shade down. A second dropdown will give you the first eight. After that, the quick settings tiles will be on a separate page (or pages, depending on how many you have) that you'll access with a swipe to the left.

When you edit your tiles, the top section will be for tiles you want in quick settings, while tiles you don't want will need to be dragged to the bottom of the edit menu. The separation is designated by a border with the text. Hold and drag to add tiles. That text changes to Drag here to delete when you are actively holding a token. Tiles above that line of text will appear in your quick settings, while tiles below that line of text will not.

When you have everything set up the way you want it, tap the back arrow in the upper left corner and your settings will be saved. From there, they are just one swipe away.
