Android 4.4 KitKat to Pack Revamped Location Settings




Android 4.4 KitKat, the next version of Google’s mobile operating system, will arrive on devices with revamped location settings, the latest reports on the matter suggest.

Following the update to the newer OS version, users will see the “Location access” screen being called “Location” and packing a series of UI changes, Android Police notes. For example, the Location on/off toggle can be seen on the top right corner now, and there is also a new screen called Location mode, which includes 3 options: High accuracy (GPS, Wi-Fi, and mobile network), Battery saving (Wi-Fi and mobile networks), and Device sensors only (GPS).

This should make it easier for users to toggle between different location modes, and offers them the possibility to turn off location in only one way. For the time being, there’s no telling on whether all these will make it inside Android 4.4 KitKat, but it appears that they might actually be included, so stay tuned for more on the matter.
