But how many times have you forgotten to enable it again, ultimately eating up some of your limited mobile data when you could’ve been on Wi-Fi? With Android Oreo, these can be a part of the past. After all, Oreo brought a long list of improvements to Android and some of you might have missed that the ability to intelligently enable WI-Fi according to location is one of them.

I am sure that you are aware of the fact that Android Oreo includes the ability to automatically turn Wi-Fi back on when you’re near a saved network, so don’t avoid taking care of things.

After that, it can automatically enable a connection only when your device reaches a location where you have previously connected, such as your home, the office, your boyfriend’s house and so on.
