Why Is There A ‘6’ Next To The Wi-Fi Symbol On My Phone?
I recently upgraded my cell phone to a newer model of Android, and suddenly when I go visit my family, or when I am in my apartment the Wi-Fi symbol has a little 6 next to it. I couldn't figure out what it was for. But I finally relented and looked it up online and it's supposedly a good thing to have.
The first time I saw the little number was at my in-laws and I couldn't figure it out. At first, I thought the little number 6 next to the Wi-Fi symbol was letting me know how many users were attached or connected to the Wi-Fi at my in-laws. But the little number 6 followed me back to my apartment, and by then I knew I didn't have 6 devices hooked up to the Wi-Fi. So I finally searched it and this is what I found.
The video below goes through the WHOLE answer as to why I see a 6 next to the Wi-Fi symbol, but for those that don't want to watch the whole video, it means that it's the next level in Wi-Fi technology and is supposedly the fastest type of Wi-Fi for Androids.
According to the website Android Authority: "the biggest focus for Wi-Fi 6 was reducing congestion and allowing more devices to connect to a network...Think of it like a fuel station that only has one pump versus a station that has several pumps available."
Knowing that having the 'best' possibly Wi-Fi is cool, and it's also 5G friendly as it isn't supposed to bog down as much when you are in crowded areas like a stadium for a game or concert.
