Switch to Strongest WiFi on Android
Don’t worry; this option doesn’t involve complicated instructions or having to bother your tech-savvy friend. All you have to do is install one easy to use app that will get the job and give you on less thing to worry about. Thanks to this app you’re in control of everything and you can also change your settings at any time.
How to Make Your Android Device Switch to a Stronger WiFi Singal
To get things started, you need first to install the WiFi Switcher app by Cloudie Development. Make sure to check that it’s from this developer since there could be other apps with the exact same name. If you’re running on Android 6.0, don’t be surprised if it asks for your location.
The reason the app asks for your location is that there is a bug in Android 6.0 that won’t let the app scan for WiFi unless you grant it access to your location. Once the app is up and running, it will automatically show you all of the nearest WiFi signals near you.
If you want the app to switch to the WiFi signal in your home automatically, this part is going to require that you do some walking so that those signal can show up in the app. As the WiFi signals come up, don’t forget to tap on the preferred box beside the signal icon.
When you’re done choosing the WiFi signals you want, you’ll need to set up how low the signal has to be for the app to switch WiFi signals. To do this tap on the three vertical dots on the upper right-hand corner and tap on Settings.
How to See the Strength Threshold
In Settings, you’ll see a slider in the Switch Range option. Set the signal threshold you want. After this, the app will know how low the signal has to be to switch to another preferred WiFi signal. I would set it to one or two bars, but the choice is obviously up to you.
Below the slider there’s the Ask Before Switching option. Make sure that you don’t have that checked on. Having it checked defeats the whole automatically switching idea. Don’t you think? An option you should have checked on is the Show Full SSID. This is helpful when there are routers that have long names.
We recommend you to go through the following handpicked Android tutorials.
Thanks to this app you’ll never be stuck with a weak WiFi network when you can easily enjoy a stronger one. You just choose the signals you want to connect to when you’re near. When you are near a signal the app will do all the work for you. All you have to do is be within a certain distance.
This is definitely a must-have app if you have multiple routers in your home. Now, you won’t have to wait until a WiFi signal is completely out of reach to switch to another one. Do you think that you’ll give the app a try? Let me know in the comments.
