Google will introduce a new feature on Android 8.1 Oreo which shows how fast a network is before you connect.

The function will save you time to connect to a wireless network that may have a strong signal but may be slower than the cellular network.

The speed information boxes appear next to the Wi-Fi signal strength symbol with the sliders: Slow, OK, Fast and Very Fast.

Slow tag means that the network is enough to make calls and send messages. "OK" is acceptable for visiting sites, social media and listening to music.

"Fast" indicates that speed is enough for viewing most of the video while "Very Fast" means you can watch high quality video.

Slow = 0 - 1Mbps
OK = 1Mbps - 5Mbps
Fast = 5Mbps - 20Mbps
Very Fast = 20Mbps +
Users can turn off the feature if they do not want this type of information. The feature was introduced in December and is only now being offered on the first phones.
