Toggle Wi-Fi, Bluetooth from Quick Settings on Android 4.2.2

Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean came with a small tweak to the Quick Settings menu. You can now toggle Bluetooth and Wi-Fi with a simple long-press on the appropriate Quick Settings tile.

A relatively minor update for the Nexus line of devices, Android 4.2.2, was released last week by Google. The update, which included various performance improvements, also included a change to the behavior of the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi tiles in Quick Settings.

To access Quick Settings, you simply swipe down from the top of your screen with two fingers. You'll see various tiles, all allowing you to quickly access their respective settings screen. New in the 4.2.2 update is the ability to long-press on the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth icons, toggling the state of the service.

It's a simple feature, but one that's not obvious unless you've accidentally stumbled upon it. Have you found any small features included in the latest update? If so, let us know in the comments below.
