How To

Add a Screen Off Timeout Toggle in Quick Settings on Nougat

In this guide, you will be able to learn how to Add a Screen Off Timeout Toggle in Quick Settings on Nougat. Android Nougat has introduced the concept of quick tiles, and they now contain more features and versatility than ever. We’ve seen the same feature first get introduced in Android Lollipop, and then be developed in Android Marshmallow. But in Nougat, it is like a whole little app up there.

However, it isn’t perfect. Regardless of all the new updates, and in spite of all the iterations of Android Nougat itself, the feature still isn’t the most ideal one to toggle all modes on your device. Sure, with a custom ROM like Resurrection Remix or Lineage OS you will be able to add a custom toggle up there, but pure and stock Android doesn’t allow for such customizations out of the box.

One such toggle which isn’t’ present in stock versions of Android is the screen-timeout toggle, which is funny because it used to be present before. Many users have found the omission of that feature a really irritating move, and I do too, since the convenience to change the screen timeout from your notifications panel was truly simple, fast and unique.

What you can do however, is to add a custom toggle, which Nougat supports. An xda-developer moraleja39, has patched his own little APK which will allow you to Add a Screen Off Timeout Toggle in Quick Settings on Nougat. Without any further delay, let’s look into how you can do so!
