Samsung has hidden a handy Wi-Fi function
The home WLAN is the connection to the outside world. If your own WLAN causes problems, then the trouble is big. Until now, you have had to access external apps to fix problems. But that doesn’t have to be the case, because from Android 13 and One UI 5.0 onwards There is a WLAN analysis tool in every Samsung cell phone (Source: AndroidPolice). You can then use this to read out where your home WLAN has weaknesses and, if necessary, improve them with a repeater.
To access the new feature on Samsung phones, you must have at least Android 13 and One UI 5.0 installed. This is currently only available on the Samsung Galaxy S22 via the beta test. You can reach the function via a small detour:
- Open settings
- open connections
- Open WiFi
- Go to the three dots at the top right
- Press 10× on “Intelligent Wi-Fi”.
This enables you to activate the developer options for the WLAN and you can there access a lot of information about your wireless network. For example, you get a graphical display of where the connection is good while you move around with your Samsung cell phone. In this way, you can identify WLAN weak points and improve them by moving the router or using repeaters. It is extremely practical to have such a function integrated directly into the mobile phone.
What else awaits you with Android 13:
When will Android 13 be released for Samsung phones?
Samsung has started beta testing with Android 13 and One UI 5.0 for the first phones. It usually takes a few more weeks before the final version is published. Now that Google has completed Android 13, it shouldn’t be long before Samsung follows suit and distributes the final version for Samsung devices. We will then check again whether this WLAN function is still as hidden or easier to reach.
