    Perhaps with Root and some customizations, but otherwise, no.

    If you are willing to do without it entirely (even when Wi-Fi is on), go to Settings -> System -> System UI Tuner -> Status bar and turn off the Wi-Fi icon. If you don't have "System UI Tuner" listed as an option, drag down the notification bar then press and hold the Settings gear icon for several seconds to enable it (it may be on by default in Pixels; this was how to enable it in previous OS versions).

    You might be able to automate this process with something like Tasker, but I doubt it.

    What carrier do you have? On my Verizon XL, the icon only comes on when I'm connected to WiFi.

    Are you saying that you do not see the grayed-out Wi-Fi icon with the slash through it when Wi-Fi is enabled but not connected to a network?

    Weird. I thought the Pixel's were not "skinned" by carriers...

    That is correct, in this screenshot the WiFi is on but not connected. My LTE symbol is located in a different position than yours as well. When it is connected to WiFi the LTE goes away, WiFi symbol appears and the signal bars remain. This is stock software.

    I may have to do some testing on this. I am surrounded by Wi-Fi both at home and at work and often in the car (Comcast customer in an area with pretty good Xfinity coverage...) , so it is not easy for me to test Wi-Fi enabled but not connected unless I "forget" all my networks first.

    If I disable Wi-Fi, I see the icon with the slash through it. When Wi-Fi is enabled and sees one or more networks but is not connected to any (secured networks that I have not entered credentials for, for example) I see a Wi-Fi icon with a small question mark. I will make it a point to monitor the situation during my drive home tonight.

    At any rate, I think the original poster is referring to Wi-Fi disabled. What do *you* see if you disable Wi-Fi altogether?


    PS: My phone is a Pixel XL, purchased directly from Google and on Google's Project Fi network.

    If I disable WiFi there is no icon in the status bar.

    The Android o beta has the grayed out wifi, stable nougat does not. That's where the discrepancy is coming in

    Ah, that could explain it. Yes, I am running the Android O beta (it's very stable for me; perhaps that is why I keep forgetting I have it).
