How to toggle data from home screen

2020-01-21, 1:09 AM

We have Moto 2e with Marshmallow. Have a pay as you go sim with voice and data.


To keep calling costs low, we like to use Hangouts. If we are on wifi, no problem. But when away from wifi, we need to turn data roaming on. THis is my wife's phone, and she forgets how to get there - it does take about 3 steps. Then after call, she needs to do it again.


I would like to have a roaming data toggle on the home screen right next to Hangouts. Preferable one that shows if roaming data is on or off.


I tried some off Google Play and they switched the other mobile data switch. Hangouts doesn't work with just that switch on.


Anyone have a good solution for this?

Hi FreeAgent,


There is no stock way to add this to the home screen. You might have to rely on 3rd party apps available on Play Store, but we can't guarantee if it would work. Thanks.


Best regards,
