Time to explain:

Media and Connectivity Controller:

This part of the Control Panel will let you use media playback control such as prev, play/pause, and next. You can also switch selected media output devices. The music-related features will ease the access of such actions without opening the music app itself.

There are connectivity options that let you choose active/inactive WiFi and Bluetooth connections right from the Control Panel. You can also jump into settings by tapping and holding the features for details.

Quick Settings:

This control panel has rebranded the quick settings and fed into a simple place to reach out your finger for the right place. You just need to tap on a selected quick settings icon and tap again to disable it. Simple! isn’t it? Sure it is.

Interestingly, you can always rearrange these icons or add new ones from the available shortcut settings.


It’s a feature that comprises all of your connected smart devices such as tablets, earbuds, and others. You can connect the know devices with one tap and disable them with the same interactions.
