Just in case you needed another reason to upgrade to Android 11, you have the potential to add far more utility to the menu that appears when you hold the power button on your device. To do so, you’ll have to make a small investment into an automation-driven application known as Tasker. For this week’s tip, we’ll walk you through using this application to customize your Android 11 command center.
Unfortunately, the command center customizations will only work on most Android devices that weren’t manufactured by Samsung, as Samsung has eliminated the command center.
To be fully transparent, Tasker can be challenging to navigate—especially at first—so until you’re familiar with using it, we recommend you follow these steps once you’ve successfully downloaded it.
Using Tasker, you can accomplish a great number of things automatically, whether it’s sending a prewritten email, activating Android’s split-screen capabilities, or a quick-text option to send one of your contacts a quick text message. Of course, this list barely scratches the surface of the application’s capabilities, and properly configuring these options may require a few YouTube searches for reference.
Once your Tasker capabilities are built, it’s time to customize your power menu.
Tasker can be purchased on the Google Play Store for $3.50 at the time of writing this. Give it a try and tell us what you think! Leave your impressions in the comment section below!
