Android May Let Carriers Hide Signal Strength: Report

Tech News

Android P may be set to give telecom carriers the ability to hide the signal strength in Settings. Signs of the new development have already surfaced through a piece of code designed for Google’s Android Open Source Project (AOSP). The new Android platform is expected to debut with the new carrier-centric feature sometime next year.

The commits appeared on Android Open Source Project site, as spotted by folks at XDA Developers. They reveal that carriers will get the option to hide signal strength in the “SIM Status” settings. It appears that unlike taking users into consideration, Google is fulfilling the request made by some carriers by opening the ability to change the visibility status of signals on the future Android version.
