In Lollipop, when I open the notification area (down-swipe from the top), and press the top right "user" icon, I get a set of toggles for some features: Wifi, Bluetooth, Airplane mode, Auto-rotate, Flashlight, Location, Cast screen, Hotspot.

Is there any way I can customize those toggles?

Specifically, I'm looking to add a toggle for my account syncing, so I can disable it over slow networks, and re-enable when I'm back on a fast wifi.

    AFAIK, the stock ROM doesn't allow customization for that area. – Andrew T. Nov 23 '14 at 8:34
  • @AndrewT. yes, it seems you are correct. – Dun Peal Nov 23 '14 at 23:14

I wasn't able to find any way of doing it via the stock ROM, and it seems like there is none. The second best solution I found was an application, Power Toggles, that adds toggles to the notification screen itself.

  • Good find - thanks! This also works well as a fill in for the media player buttons (play/pause, next, and previous) that sadly disappeared from the lock screen with the upgrade to Lollipop. – kevinmicke Dec 8 '14 at 19:14
  • Additional note on the media player buttons: the one difference I see from the Kit Kat default media player buttons is that this only works with one app at a time, allowing you to select which app you want it to control. – kevinmicke Dec 8 '14 at 19:39
  • @DunPeal Power Toggles is not in the app store anymore, can you please share the apk ? – SebMa May 20 at 15:45
