The toggle, which was grayed out in earlier Android O builds, is located in Settings > Network and internet > WiFI > WiFi preferences. Presumably,.

A redesigned Pixel Launcher was spotted on Google Pixel demo units at I/O this week. 9to5Google found the new-look Pixel Launcher in the Android Instant Apps demo area and managed to capture it in a couple of brief.
