How to Enable and Disable System UI Tuner on Android

System UI Tuner, a feature that got introduced in Android MarshMallow, has a lot of experimental features to customize Android device.

If you want to give a try to those experimental features, then you need to enable System UI Tuner first because it is a hidden feature.

Without any delay, let's see how to enable it.

Here is an important thing to note:

Even though the feature got introduced in MarshMallow, not all the MarshMallow devices have this feature.

If you have a MarshMallow device, then I suggest you to try it out the following steps to find out your device has this feature or not.


  • angle-right
    Swipe down twice on your Android device.
  • angle-right
    Long press the "Gear" icon at the top until you feel the vibration.

    Now, you will be in the "Settings" app, and you can see a toast message stating "Congrats! System UI Tuner has been added to Settings."
