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.

requires following permissions on your android device.

approximate location (network-based)
Allows the app to get your approximate location. This location is derived by location services using network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine approximately where you are.

precise location (GPS and network-based)
Allows the app to get your precise location using the Global Positioning System (GPS) or network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine where you are, and may consume additional battery power.

view network connections
Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.

view Wi-Fi connections
Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and name of connected Wi-Fi devices.

change network connectivity
Allows the app to change the state of network connectivity.

connect and disconnect from Wi-Fi
Allows the app to connect to and disconnect from Wi-Fi access points and to make changes to device configuration for Wi-Fi networks.

Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.

full network access
Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.

read phone state
Allows read only access to phone state, including the phone number of the device, current cellular network information, the status of any ongoing calls, and a list of any PhoneAccounts registered on the device.

run at startup
Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.

    I have used several apps that claim to do the same job but they don't, this app does the job and have pretty nice configuration settings. I only wish the notification icon were not the same than wifi one because it is confusing (hence my 4 stars)

  2. Steve Barker-avatar

    Steve Barker


    It. Just. Works. Installed on my SGS20 ultra, authorised location and did not change any of the default settings. I have a range extender only 6m from my hub (old cottage, thick stone walls) and WiFi Switcher switches seamlessly back & forth. No disruption when streaming, but haven't checked VOIP or video messaging yet. Works the same on my S5 tab as well 👍

    Once you take the time to research and learn how wifi works this becomes an invaluable tool. My ISP recently installed a "smart" router which kept switching from 2G to 5G and back to 2G, even when I was stationary and 5G had the stronger sigbal. Spectrum locks the user out of the new routers so no way to turn off the "smart" feature. The result? Dropped wifi calls, video conference freezes and stutter. Solution - buy my own router, configure it without auto switching and use this app.

    There is still room for improvement. Sometimes it goes crazy switching between preferred networks, which is the same ssid with a router and a few repeaters, even with refined settings for signal strength.

    It changes only when I open the app, although it is already running in the background. I don't know why yet.. Can be scanning interval issue. It is set to 10 seconds tho.

    Have used for over a year with great success. Had stopped working for about a week recently but reinstalling has fixed functioning. Works very well in large home with multiple WiFi networks. Recommended

    Amazing app! It solved an issue with my device which occurred everytime i was in my room, i couldn't see my 5ghz wifi eventhough it is well within the coverage range. It just wouldn't appear with the available wifi's But this app can detect it and is able to switch to it! Thanks a lot!

  9. Forrest Falk-avatar

    Forrest Falk


    Great app! Does exactly what you need it to do. The only issue is that location just be on to change wifi networks. This causes my battery to drain quicker. If there is a way to make it work without location that would be great.

    I was working perfectly for more than a month. Lately, however, it does work at all. I didn't change any settings on the app. Uninstalling.

    Original Review: Stopped working after recent Android/Samsung up update of my galaxy A40. Fixed it my turning off the battery optimisation feature for this app in the settings. It has been activated for all apps at three update. Back to the awesomeness of before. Tried a few other switcher apps on my time and money are as sleek and straightforward as this one. Installed on my phone and both my tablets. Update 18 May 2020: It worked OK for 24 hours after disabling the battery optimisation and now it gets stuck. It notifies me that it is switching but the switch never happens, and it just keeps repeating that it is switching and doesn't. I guess something has changed in the latest Android update that prevents the app from executing the switch. This is a shame because I love this app, but if it doesn't do the job it can't have more 1 star :(

    This is very exceptional for a free product! Much better than the wifi switcher (which was trash even after unlocking premium features) wish there was a way to support these guys!

  13. Eric B-avatar

    So far this app has been perfect for me. It switches automatically between my garage wifi and my house.

    Yeaaahhh! Finally a wifi switcher that actually works on my phone. After trying all the rest and finding that they did nothing I found Wi-Fi Switcher and it works great!

  15. Dániel Lévai-avatar

    Dániel Lévai


    Pretty good so far. I'm using it with different APs with the same SSID and it seems the app can cope with it after tuning the thresholds a bit. Weird is that the whole thing only works if I give it Location permissions to use in the background.

  16. Thomas Waechter-avatar

    Thomas Waechter


    Only works when starting the app. Doesn't even change the WiFi when running in background and in task bar.

  17. Michael Long-avatar

    This app does the job with ease. I previously used a paid-for app but it did NOT work... no matter what settings I used. This one is fabulous with a very comprehensive list of settings. Highly recommended.

    Worked well for a few days then stopped working. And no way ro reset to defaults after experimenting with settings.

    Doesn't keep me on 2.4 ghz like I wanted it too. My phone doesn't allow me to select what frequency I want so I thought it would stop it from automatically changing between frequencies but it doesn't do anything.

    Was working perfectly switching between two APs at home, but sadly no longer works for my phone that recently updated to Android 10.

  21. Jay McGoon-avatar

    Jay McGoon


    Just installed a couple of hours ago but so far this works great for switching between ap's on the same network. Hint, go into settings and turn off 5G priority. If you don't, your phone or tablet will try to stick to your router running in 5G even if it's weaker than your access point. Many access points run at 2.4 gigahertz. As soon as I turned this off, my phone automatically switches to the strongest signal as I walk through the house.

  22. Nikola Petrov-avatar

    Nikola Petrov


    The app does exactly what you would expect. It even works for my setup which is using two ap with the same ssid

  23. Chris Gibbs-avatar

    Chris Gibbs


    Tried this app because I get randomly disconnected from my WiFi. Set up preferred networks, started connected to one. After i got disconnected I watched for a half-hour. It never reconnected me even though a preferred network with good signal was in range. I know this isn't exactly what the app is for but i was hoping. I guess it must work in a really specific way. :(

  24. JG-avatar



    This was the only app able to select among different ap with the same SSID.

    I like the app, works very well I have been using it for two weeks and it solved my android drop outs...note for developers. Just noticed a bug, I have a lgv30+ and just noticed Google movies and tv wouldn't work . Turned off switcher and it started working again. Not complaining just letting you know. Keep up the good work . 😉

  26. Winston Yao-avatar

    Winston Yao


    Great app does what it says. Just one request, could you add a function to stop scanning x mins if no preferred wifi present considering Android wifi will auto connect when it detects a saved wifi hotspot? I noticed the app scans continuously even when preferred networks aren't available and my phone warns me of such event. Thanks!

  27. Eric Schucard-avatar

    Eric Schucard


    Finally an app like this that does what it says! The best I've tried so far, and I've tried many... Quickly switches between my primary 5Ghz AP/extenders, and then totally unnoticeable when it slips me onto the 2.4Ghz at longer distances. Customizable settings are an excellent perk. I am truly happy with this app. :)

  28. Michael Chatfield-avatar

    Michael Chatfield


    I like this app in principle, and it send to have a good level of control. Yet, I can't currently rate this app correctly, as it doesn't seem to work properly. It is stuck at scanning wifi networks, despite being placed right next to two APs.

  29. Succ Ducc-avatar

    Succ Ducc


    Good, but there's room for improvement! Please make the transition seamless when switching, for Eg: Don't disconnect from the old one and reconnect to the new one...rather make it seamless as you walk then it automatically adjusts the signal. Thank you

    Used to more or less work, although seemed a bit random. Now just doesn't unless I open the app (and even then is slow to react ie switch). Not on battery optimisation, background run allowed, location turned on... don't know what else to try. I found another app that does the job perfectly so it is possible....

  32. BJ Strange-avatar

    Worked great before the latest update. Now it just shows Scanning... under Preferred Wi-Fi Networks and never does anything else. Tried rebooting and reinstalling. Shame, was the best app of its type I had found. Back to searching.

    It keeps rotating to reconnect two 5g and 2.4g preferred networks at every single second, though both intervals settings are 10s and 1m, and 5g is preferred. Thus the toast notifications keeps prompting. I wish it works but... this is obviously malfunctioned.
