I am using Nougat / Oreo Quick Settings: [link]
There is another paid app called tiles that does it as well but I haven't used this one: [link]
Both do require an ADB command to use Immersive Mode and some other settings if you're not rooted.
Quick Settings in the play store adds tiles. There is a tile for screen timeout that allows you to change screen timeout to a host of options very quickly, inclusive of 10 and 30 minutes. Works on my 6t.
no root for this app, lets you add a quick setting tile so its easy to toggle. just be aware that active edge doesnt work when the navbar is hidden
Nougat / Oreo Quick Settings
No issues with mine, absolutely love it. I'm glad I didn't cancel my order. The colors don't look bad to me... But then again I'm used to using color calibrated displays.
I did enable system-wide immersive mode until 8.1 is pushed though... Just to be on the safe side.
EDIT: for anyone who wants to enable immersive mode (no root), just do this through adb
>adb shell settings put global policy_control immersive.full=*
or, grant Nougat/Oreo Quick Settings permission to edit secure settings which allows you to add a notification toggle for immersive mode
>adb shell pm grant it.simonesestito.ntiles android.permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS
Some apps have an annoying black bar on the bottom even though the nav bar is gone... but it should help until the 8.1 update.
It's a secure setting. In order to change secure settings you need to follow the instructions in Tasker to grant the write secure settings permission via ADB on a computer.
Once you have granted Tasker the necessary permission create a profile that triggers when your app of choice is opened (+/application/select your app of choice).
For the corresponding task you'll need +/Setting/Custom setting, set type to "Secure", name to "accessibility_display_inversion_enabled", and value to 1. Note that this exact name may vary from device to device so you may need to do a search for a similar name. I'm on a Galaxy S8.
Finally you'll want to create an exit task that sets the value of the above setting to zero.
Here's an example that triggers when Reddit is in the foreground. Import this as a profile into Tasker:
Otherwise this app allows you to put a quick-setting toggle that toggles that setting when clicked:
I use this and use immersive mode. I used cnb on my of pixel XL and it caused weird issues for me. It also gives you tons of extra quick settings. Some pics
Quick Settings is an app that has an option called "caffeine" for a quick settings tile. Just enable it in the app then pull down the quick settings panel and turn it on.
Install this app: [link]
Enable the cast tile in the multimedia section of the app.
You should then be able to add it to your quick settings panel.
Samsung hides the stock cast menu for some stupid reason but this allows you to access it
Does anyone know how to use ADB Commands to enable system wide immersion, but customise it for each user?
Consider this, there are three users on one device, namely, user 0, user 1 and user 2. How do I:
Give user 0 full immersive settings via adb shell settings put global policy_control immersive.full=apps,-com.google.android.googlequicksearchbox and not have this impact the other users;
Remove the satus bar, system wide, for user 1 via adb shell settings put global policy_control immersive.status=apps,-com.google.android.googlequicksearchbox and not undo (1) above;
Leave user 2 unchanged?
Does something similar to adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 <PACKAGE> exist, but for the immersive policy?
Prior to Oreo, you could install Third-Party Apps — Oreo/Nougat Quick Settings and Immersive Settings— for each user and customize to your heart's content. In Oreo, Immersive Mode breaks something, causing sooooooopa sloooooooow unlocking.
TL;DR: Thanx for reading
This solution would probably be the easiest.
I think the tile you are gonna look for is called 'Immersive mode', where you can either hide statusbar, navbar or both :)
Nougat / Oreo Quick Settings
What makes it even better is if you have root you can use this app to add a mono toggle to quick settings in the notification panel [link]
That GMD immersive app is pretty bad.
It's doesn't require root, just one simple ADB command to enable immersive mode and gives you a Quick Settings toggle for it as well.
There's more, but these are the one's I have. There's tonnes of useful one's in apps such as, Quick Settings.
So I've figured out a (hopefully temporary) solution for this by adding a battery level Quick Setting tile set to display in text.
(This however creates a persistent notification which I then block with AutoNotification.)
Ridiculous I have to use two apps to recreate the most basic functionality ever but oh well.
Apps that have Chromecast functionality built-in like YouTube and Netflix will only mirror themselves. You can control what's being mirrored on your TV through the app.
You can also mirror your whole tablet through the Google Home app or the quick settings toggle in notifications. If Samsung didn't provide a Cast button in quick settings, you can grab Quick Settings and add it.
Hope you managed to find a way to sort this - there is a way of doing this via the quick tiles if you find the right app.
FYI the PWR and VOL DOWN is the standard Android way of taking screenshots, but granted the buttons are close together on these devices.
Edit: This app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=it.simonesestito.ntiles
It's called 'Caffeine' and it temporarily changes your screen timeout time to unlimited (no time out). You can use it if you download Quick Settings:
It's really useful when reading or looking back and forth at your phone and don't want to tap every few seconds to keep your screen awake
Nougat/Oreo Quick Settings works for me. It adds a quick setting tile to the quick setting menu which when turned on, prevents display from turning off. Open the app, Menu > Utilities > Caffeinate > Enable toggle
you can add a toggle in your notification shade - but if you use it to lock the phone you need to use your PIN to unlock it - fingerprint will NOT work
Sorry for necroposting, but this might help others reading through this thread. This app can add new toggles to the Quick Settings, it has Heads Up toggle to disable peeking.
Edit: You need to be rooted.
This one leaves a red bar at the bottom unless you pay, Quick settings leaves a QS tile where you can toggle immersive mode without any annoying bars. [link]
Install Nougat / Oreo Quick Settings, open it, then scroll down your statusbar twice, press the pencil icon in the top right and find a panel that says "power menu" or such.
I used Nougat / Oreo Quick Settings, you need to ADB to the phone to enable immersive mode button
The only issue you might have is that immersive mode disables the squeeze for Assistant feature
I did find this app last night that would work for you since you're rooted.
Let's you add a quick toggle for "Mono Audio" in the notification bar/area thing.
Yes, there is a "heads up" toggle in your settings somewhere. Look through your quick settings, you may have to add it to be able to toggle it off. If you cant find it, your rom may have hid it somewhere. The setting does exist, and you will be able to access it somehow, even if something third party is needed.
edit: something like Nougat Quick Settings can toggle heads up notifications off
As a temporary fix download one of the apps which gives a toggle to keep the screen awake. (Nougat quick settings has a caffeinate quick settings toggle you could use)
Hahahahahaha I was afraid you were going to say samsung phone. Cause that requires some additional steps as samsung replaces cast with smart display which removed cast support in One UI 3.1 (which I'm sure you are running cause you have A71)
Alternatively you could mirror from Google home app too once you are connected to hotspot on chromecast.
(I did all those steps too cause I'm on A70 with One UI 3.1)
Quick settings has such option. You'll need to pin the earpiece quick tile and you can start hearing sound from the earpiece
If you're okay with a toggle in the notification shade, you could try an app called quick settings.
you can use it to change the screen timeout time without having to go to the main settings app.
Quick Settings can add a tile to invert colors, though I forget if it needed ADB commands inputted first.
If that doesn't work, see if you can do it with the Direct Access shortcut in accessibility settings.
For my S10, I remapped the Bixby button with BxActions, and set it to invert colors using a Tasker task every time I long press the button.
Here is a potential workaround. Download Quick Settings and give it Device Admin permission, click "System (no root)" and tap "Cellular data type". This should add a toggle to the quick settings panel (pulldown the notifcation bar twice, you may have to swipe left once or twice to see it). I don't have a ATT phone to test, but that is how I added a 5G/2G shortcut on my unlocked S20+ on T-Mobile.
I use /r/nextdns when I'm out of the house for whole system ad blocking. I set up a Tasker task with a toggle to bring up the Private DNS menu so I can enable and disable it as needed.
> immersive mode
Get Quick Settings, enable all the features via the in-app purchase, then give it the necessary permissions via the ADB command (it's in the Google Play app description.)
Then enable the Immersive Mode Quick Settings tile. I run my phone in immersive mode 24/7/52 but can toggle back and forth via the tile as some apps - e.g. Twitter, Termux, etc. - don't support it properly.
quick setting tiles
Open the App after installing > allow permission requested as you wish > tap the menu on bottom left > go to shortcuts tab > find power dialogue > then it will ask for accessibility permission > allow permission > add quick settings tiles to notification bar > tap > your phone's power dialogue may appear > re-start .
Try Quick Settings it will let you add an icon for that to the quick settings menu.
There are many other options available and you don't need to root! You can do it with ADB.
That's definitely unexpected behavior and while I don't know a fix, I have a work around
Download "Quick Settings" and add the Caffeine quick settings tile to force the screen to be on without having to touch it, I know it's a pretty bad solution it's best I have on short notice
Screenshot functionality is not provided by the launcher. But you can add a shortcut to screenshot to the quicksettings menu using apps like
You can also add gesture to take screenshot on nova but it will only work on homescren
You'll have to run a command line prompt to give permission but Quick Settings ([link]) has a toggle for Immersive Mode that will hide the Navigation Bar.
Also I'm not sure but doesn't turning on Gesture Control remove the Nav Bar?
Yay! Found a way! I already had an app that can stop all media audio but still let you get notification sounds. It's called "Quick Settings" it lets you manage tiles the Android slide down panel. It has a "music volume" tile that you can add.
My solution is: [link]
After install add "kofeina" to quick settings toogle and all you need to do is push the button. Screen will be on until you turn it off.
You could use Quick Settings for 1, 2 and 4, while for your third request you could make Quick Settings open this app, then enable/disable keys.
Otherwise, Tasker shouldbe able to handle all those activities, it's extremely powerful and you can do really anything you could think of, but you need time to understand how it works and how to create the tasks you need.
> is this something native in the software?
You can set the status bar to disappear on a per app basis via the fullscreen setting, but that's annoying. I do it systemwide all the time. Here's how:
That makes the navigation bar basically disappear forever. Now to take care of the status bar:
Enjoy systemwide immersive mode toggling at the tap of a button :)
In the app Quick Settings you can create a tile called "Smart Reminder" which will add a notification you can use to take notes. It sounds like exactly what you are after.
It's the same process as bxactions, just manually. You gotta give permission for this app and add the quick toggle to the quick toggles(duh) and you get this
It's not like that OnePlus should have implemented this already, I mean, they try to keep the OxygenOS close to stock and stock Android doesn't have that feature either. Tbh I've only one manufacturer having this slider and it's LG ofc.
There is a pretty handy app though https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=it.simonesestito.ntiles You can add plenty of quick settings to your panel with it, one of them shows the system volume slider, so you can change it without using the buttons.
I think it's a bug in Chrome, since it used to work just fine. However, I use Quick Settings with ADB access which allows me to toggle immersive mode with the tap of a Quick Setting tile.
Quick Settings has a Smart Reminder quick setting tile that acheives exactly what you mentioned.
Tiles also has a Reminder quick setting tile and acheives something similar, but you don't type directly on to the notification itself.
I prefer Tile's implementation since it let's me have multiple reminders, whereas Quick Setting's implementation only let's you have one reminder at any give time.
NOTE: Both of these require ADB.
Not on a per-app-basis, but quick settings works great because it can create a tile "caffeinate" that can keep your screen on forever until you shut I told yourself.
Here is another little apps that can make quick settings more useful. my phone's power button has some issues so I cannot take screen shots easily. With this app I can make screen shots just a single tap. It has more than 53 cool quick settings to meet your style.
Great, glad it helped. Another one I've been using is Quick Settings it's allowed me to add more easy access things to my quick tiles like smart reminders, calculator, and Alexa voice button. It keeps me from needing to add more icons to my home screen but also not have to search my whole app drawer.
Here's what I did. Download one of those Custom Quick Tiles apps like:
Then enable the Lock tile. It will ask you to activate admin rights so go ahead and do that. Then add the tile to your Quick settings pulldown somewhere. Then when you hit "Lock" it will turn the screen off and if you attempt to use the fingerprint reader it will force a PIN since it was locked by an admin app.
Edit: I know this wasn't exactly what you were looking for, but I think its a nice go between since there isn't a native version of this feature
One of the Canadian Big Three... Apparently, some quick settings haven't been made available on past Samsung phones for Canadian users.
I'll try one of these apps:
I remember using one of those Quick Settings apps that made appearance in Nougat, there's a tile option unlockable somewhere that switch to mono audio there and worked pretty well. I think it requested root access for that but am not sure.
Unfortuntely my phone was stolen two weeks ago but I think this was the app. [link]
LineageOS (and ROMs based on their sources) have a feature called Expanded Desktop which does this. You can decide which app should hide the status bar, navigation bar, or both. LineageOS 14.1 has it; I'm not sure if this has been merged into the LineageOS 15.1 sources.
Another non root solution is to use the Nougat / Oreo quick settings app:
You don't need root, but you have to connect your phone to your PC via abd and provide a permission for the app. The hiding cannot be done on per-app basis, but you can add a quick toggle tile and enable/disable as per your needs.
My quick tile screenshot:
It works fine. One thing to keep in mind is that autotools is not a free app. It features a 30 day trial though.
Other than that this is a good approach. Although you could do almost the same thing (for free) with Quick settings
Open Google Assistant, then find the option for "Share screenshot."
You could also use Oreo Quick Settings to make a screenshot toggle.
So update: I still have the issue. It may be related to "quick settings" I keep my phone on a tilted dock thing at work and when the ambient screen is not on, its just black, I know I will have your issue, and I do every time. I am going to uninstall quick settings and report back.
Additionally the ONLY thing I use QS for is Immursive mode, so I can remove the navigation bar.
Have you used this app? [link]
It's a similar thing as Tiles, but it doesn't seem to toggle the ambient stuff. Curious how it compares to your "Tiles" suggestion. Maybe I should switch.
Much as I hated all the cruft that Samsung added to my previous phone, there are a few things that I wanted back: NFC and a few other items on the quick settings. For that, Quick Settings Nougat/Oreo (link here, no benefit to me) [link] does the trick.
I'd still like to have the weather on my wake screen without a persistent notification icon, but at least I've got it in the quick settings tiles.
You can fix that by installing Quick Settings and replacing the stock rotation lock toggle with the app's, which has landscape lock
Nougat/Oreo Quick Settings or Tiles have ringer mode tiles you can add to your quick settings.
Although I have a night screen filter by default, I have been Nougat/Oreo Quick Settings for other features, give it a try. One of the best.
By default it will filter the color Black but if you want to change it to Yellow or Red, the steps are:
Utilities > Night screen filter > customize > chose the filter color
Very lightweight and battery efficient.
Having a look at this thread, I saw a link to an app called Nougat / Oreo Quick Settings. This adds tiles to the quick setting drop down, and while I haven't tested the actual tile, it does have a live display tile.
You are incorrect. You can use this: [link]
This doesn't even need root, just adb & you will get an immersive mode tile in quicksettigns on stock.
I've looked into it a bit, it looks like whatever you do you'll have to use ADB. With the tasker method you'll also have to install the AutoTools plugin even if you don't install tasker itself, which needs WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS to enable immersive mode.
I did find an app that should be able to add an immersive mode quick settings toggle without the need for tasker or AutoTools. It still needs WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS though, so you'll still need to grant it that via ADB to get it started. Should be a one time thing though, and seems a little less messy than tasker. Give it a shot. I'll probably still work on the tasker method just because I want to do it anyway, so if the app doesn't work out let me know and I'll send you what I come up with.
Are you sure it doesn't require root? I tried these and they needed root:
I used this app to add a quick tile that makes the music come out of just the earpiece on my S8. Might be better than the bottom facing one on the G6?
If you download the Nougat Quick Settings app you can add a tile in the notification shade pulldown for the built in night screen filter.
Nougat Quick Settings
So I switched to OOS 7.x because I wanted the security patches. They haven't fixed the slider but I use Nougat Quick Settings which lets me add a "ringer" tile. I use this to set it to vibrate. It sucks but it works.
To be honest I prefer OOS 7.x to the previous versions, it feels a lot more stable. I love the dark theme on everything.
You could try this app. It adds the tiles to the QS that are currently missing. I love the calculator and reboot shortcut and they work flawlessly.
The caffeine tile is there as well, but I haven't tried it out though. Hope it helps!
dude I've stumble upon this at play store which helps me to add some of CM13's classic toggles such as caffeine and such without that much of popup hassle as in rascarlo's Tiles. It's pretty good, try it. Best of all, it's free
There's an app that I use called Quick Settings that exposes a lot of Android settings to the Quick Settings
Here's the app
You can download (Nougat / Oreo Quick Settings) and it will allow for Immersive mode, as well as a list of other settings.
edit: link correction
I'm not sure there is an NFC quicktile natively. This app called Quick Settings allows you to add one.
It looks like you can add it to your tiles with the Quick Settings app.
I think Nougat Quick Settings can do that.
I just used this to get the battery tile. [link]
This app [link] , it needs root.
This exactly. It's also available in this app, for non rooted devices as well:
You can also configure it as a quick settings tile. Install this app and choose Reading mode tile
Just use a application like this, and add a mobile data tile.
I use Quick Settings ([link]) to accomplish real time speed this but it is a notification rather than being in the status bar
That's one reason why your battery goes fast, c'mon 90%. I don't know, but give this app a try and see: [link]
Do any Huawei phones support eye tracking? All I can find is an article from 2016 about 'Honor Magic' phones - https://www.tobii.com/group/news-media/press-releases/2016/12/huawei-integrates-tobii-eye-tracking-features-in-honor-magic-smartphone/
For me I configure a Tasker job that sets a 10 minute display timeout for some apps, shopping lists, games, etc. It had been working pretty good (with my Nexus 6P) but I seem to be running into issues on my Mate SE where the exit task isn't always being called to reset it to my preferred 2 minute timeout. Happened a few times now. Could just be a fluke, closed the app too quickly.
I also use a Caffeine quick tile from the Nougat / Oreo Quick Settings app - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=it.simonesestito.ntiles&hl=en_US - that keeps the display on until you turn off the phone or toggle the tile. Useful for a one time deal like uploading a bunch of photos in an app that you don't want to be interrupted by a sleep.
I think you need root, but this worksn with the "Reading Mode" toggle [link]
I believe its this one:
If your phone is on 7.0 or newer your could install [link] and enable the screenshot toggle
Check this app.
Apps I'm using:
Note that all of those above will require granting permissions over ADB, which you can install from here
Additionally I'm using:
Additional apps that may be of interest
The battery percent in the icon on the notification bar or in the quick settings tile? You should try Nougat Quick Settings.
Nougat Quick Settings is awesome, solved some of the issues you mentioned for me.
Just use the volume buttons however if you want an actual tile for it you will have to use something like this
check this [link] and I want a partial screenshot tile
This works for me on Nougat.
Gives You Cast Button/Option Similar To "Smartview"
This app has that feature along w/ many others that are super useful. Been using it since my S8.
What about something like this to add it to quick settings ?
Check you this app [link] if you can manage to do it or search for nfc toggles in play store.
Also, a rotation function is included with some quick settings apps, where you can add it to your qs panel.
ive seen these all recommended [link] [link] [link]
any idea which one is best for creating custom quick setting tiles?
Personally I use Quick Settings and I add the Caffeine button to my toolbar, which prevents device sleep
Works a bit shitly but here you go.
I use this but it doesn't toggle on my 4XL, only gives a shortcut to Connection Preferences.
Worked fine on my old HTC U11+
[link] i don't know but you can use this if you want a shortcut in quick settings.
There's also Quick Settings which is a similar app.
Does anyone know how this differs from Quick Settings?
Could try this if it supports your device
Install Quick Settings and enable the Screenshot Tile.
I use Quick Settings for Caffeine. Works better than other ones I tried and works fine on A10.
It's a toggle called Caffeine within the app Quick Settings that keeps your screen awake.
Not a stock setting on the S8.
You could use a tile for that, Quick Settings can help you create this tile and many others.
Same for me until I installed Pie (I think), try this app and add the Caffeine tile: [link]
If Dolby Atmos is an app or shortcut, Quick Settings has worked really well for me.
Check this app.. It should have the sync tile option.
Use "Immersive Mode" tile from this
Also, you can change settings to always be full immersive mode / notif only, etc
There are apps that do it. I used to use [link] and use the caffeine tile. You just tap that tile and it keeps the screen on
Yes but you need to install third party app like this one : [link]
you can try this
I use a free app called Quick Settings. It allows you to add a quick settings toggle for alot of things, one being a screenshot.
Install this app and add the ringer tile to the notification drawer.
Easy to get the calculator back :) [link]
Enable immersive mode tile and enable it ��
Enable immersive mode and use 100% of the time right out of the box. You'll never get burn in.
Hey thanks! I went with this one: [link] because it's free but this is awesome!
Nougat / Oreo Quick Settings:
Why not download this app? Immersive mode tile (requires root) is built in and it works flawlessly.
Nougat Quick Settings has the coin flip
That's really strange.
Here's a fix though [link]
Just enable it.
Alternatively you could enable through adb.
Try this app:[link]
Actually looks like this can also do it, and this one is free.
Nougat Quick Settings
dude, forget Tiles, here's the one I'm using, it's like Tiles but with more tiles and no annoying popup
A few new ones mentioned in the Android Police article today:
It's extremely important that more people need to test this. Ideally you do the same 50 Minute run BEFORE you do anything with ADB. First do a 50 Minute run with max Brightness (Disable the Lockscreen so the display is always on) and note how much battery was used. Then proceed and do the ADB + Quick Settings trick and note how much was used after you installed the app and enabled immersive mode.
Quick Settings : [link]
USB ADB Driver (Automated install and detection) : [link]
Minimal ADB and Fastboot :
My Battery App said 23% was used in the last 3 Hours with max Brightness and Eco Mode OFF but Immersive Mode ON. I retested and got the same results.
