Here's a temporary fix for the missing quick toggles on your Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge
Have you had any of your Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge quick toggles disappear? Though the phone came with these toggles available for the notification menu, many users are reporting the mobile data, hotspot and private mode toggles have been disappearing.
Sadly, there is no official fix just yet, but some Samsung customer service representatives and social networking accounts have been acknowledging the problem, so we can say it’s a widespread problem and hope Sammy is working hard to make things right. The Korean manufacturer has been telling users they can get the quick toggles back by performing a factory data reset, but that is hardly a solution – after all, chances are the toggles will just disappear again later on.
Thankfully, the Android operating system allows users to tinker their way around many issues and the guys at XDA Developers have managed to find a much less drastic solution. Some users figured downloading MultiWindow Toggle for Samsung from the Google Play Store. This app allows you to add and remove the MultiWindow function to the quick toggles. This is not a solution to the underlying problem, though, as it doesn’t help those who want the data, hotspot and private mode toggles.
Here is the fix!
Developers are resourceful, and proof of this is offered by senior member NimeniAltu, who managed to alter the application and add this functionality to said app. All you need to do is download the APK from the XDA Developers thread, install it and tell it to work its sweet magic.
Now all we have to do is wait for Samsung to come up with a permanent solution to this issue. I mean, those happen to be pretty important functions that went missing. There’s no excuse, nor is there reason for Samsung to purposely remove them, so hopefully the fix comes sooner than later.
How many of you guys suffered from this discrepancy? I have a Samsung Galaxy S6 review unit right now and I did notice the toggles are no longer there. Sound off in the comments! We would love to see how many of our readers were affected by this.
