About this app

Automatically switch to a better WiFi network when current signal is weak

Ensure you stay connected to the most powerful Wi-Fi network available. The best WiFi roaming app available.

By default, Android devices will not switch to a different Wi-Fi network as long as the current network connection is available, although the signal level is very weak and makes the network unusable.

The app constantly monitors Wi-Fi network levels and intelligently switches to a better network whenever the current signal becomes too weak.

Wi-Fi Switcher comes packed with the most comprehensive set of options, not available with any other free app:
* define a list of preferred networks and choose whether to switch only between networks in the list or not
* automatically attempt to connect to open networks, if available
* prefer 5GHz networks over 2.4GHz networks, when available
* for advanced users, fine tuning of the signal thresholds and scanning frequency provides total control on the switching behavior and power usage
* automate app via external control apps such as Tasker. In Tasker, use the Launch App command, look up the Wi-Fi Switcher application, long tap to see the available activities. You will see one activity to enable Wi-Fi Switcher and one to disable it

The Wi-Fi Switcher Team

The app has been tested in real environments for a long time, to ensure the most predictable and sensible switching behavior for everyone. If you experience unexpected or suboptimal behavior, just let us know and we'll tune it to match your needs.

Unfortunately, it doesn't work with Android 10. It scans and find the networks just fine, and displays that its changing to the correct network. However, it doesn't actually change. My guess is that Android is blocking the app from making the switch. Maybe needs a permissions update?

My home wifi is 3 ubiquity APs. Android won't switch APs until the signal is awful (-85 dB). This has an "experimental" option to switch to the strongest AP, but it doesn't work for me---no different than regular Android. I'm on Android 11. A different app was able to automatically switch to the strongest AP on Android 10. Maybe I need to downgrade...

Doesn't work. As other users have reported, this app only seems to switch wireless networks of you open the app manually. It doesn't appear to scan for and detect wireless networks while the app runs in the background. As soon as you open the app, wireless networks are refreshed and only then does it switch to the strongest network. So you may as well just switch manually within Android.
