Ew... That is the ugliest battery icon I've ever seen. Can I just keep it the way it is now, please?

The changed icons are already present on most 3rd party OEM roms. Outside of AOSP based roms hardly noteworthy. The new chip based charging indicator is a bit difficult to read but the slightly improved animation is ok.

I just want the option to have my quick access icons be circular buttons and not this massive blob BS. I got pretty used to having like 20 (maybe a couple less) things that were all accessible from a single spot. It was nice.

They're finally reverting the separation of battery icon and numeric percentage? Sweet! I never liked the current implementation.

But other than that, it really doesn't look significantly different.

This has been a thing since ages on most OEM devices. AOSP is so much behind. 7 years of updates are really necessary for pixels.

Looks a bit shit

I'd be happy if they brought back the wifi toggle instead of making me go into a settings screen

Get ready for your Bluetooth toggle getting the same treatment...

It's a thing on most android smartphones. But, I searched and apparently you can bring that behaviour back on pixel smartphones too. Here's a YouTube video if you are on android 12/13. It may even work on android 14 https://youtu.be/KnhlC4_LbyU?si=zZPcXiQSlUbSHp8W

Even Motorola thought that was dumb because I have separate toggles on my Android 13 Motorola phone, with the caveat that clicking turning off data gives me an "are you sure" prompt. I just bypass this with the airplane mode button, which is still thankfully 1 click.

SuperSpruce ,

So change for the sake of change. The new icons are fine, and I even slightly like the revamp to the battery icon, but this is still just pointless.

Also, my near stock Android 13 phone already gives me haptic feedback when I long press the quick toggles, so this is not even a change.

Wow. That battery looks truly terrible.

Why? It's pointless but not detrimental imo.

RGB3x3 ,

because it's pointless and annoying on top of all the other annoying bull crap Google has been pulling over the last 5 years.

Those are not material icons, please don't google

hopefully these are just a test or something

It was good while it lasted. Nearly 10 years.

Just let me make my custom ones the default. Let Icon Pack Studio set that.

This is a belated April Fool's joke, right? This looks horrendous. Like the ugly child of iOS and Samsung icons.

blayde ,

These look a lot like iOS status icons, but I'm not familiar enough to say for sure

I wish Google would use the haptics engine more. It's been incredibly capable since the Pixel 6...

Funny, I think it's used a ton and it's so ubiquitous in some situations that I forget it's even there, but immediately notice it's absence.
