    I often change Bluetooth devices and it’s a pain to have to manually disconnect the current device each time on my Pixel. And even more of a pain now with Oreo, which buries it a level deeper. I want to be able to tap a macro on my home screen that disconnects the current device. Anyone know how this can be done? I’ve tried both Automate and Tasker and haven’t been able to figure out how to do it. Should be simple.

    Personally I use Nova launcher and I have a home screen shortcut to jump right into my Bluetooth settings.

    Pixel stock launcher also allows you to to long press on the home screen and add a shortcut to your Bluetooth settings.

    Just curious, do any of you use the Google Assistant to turn on and/or turn off Bluetooth?

    Thanks, but when I long press on the home screen (Pixel launcher) I’m not seeing an option to create a menu item shortcut. It shows three options: Wallpapers, Widgets and Settings (not device settings). I don’t see a widget for Bluetooth settings.

    I see I can drag down to get the quick menu, then tap the down arrow, and then the current Bluetooth device to disconnect it (three steps). Just looking to do this in as few steps as possible. A single-tap shortcut would be ideal.

    Look at bluetooth auto connect app in the play store. It should have a widget that you can configure.

    Sorry for not being clearer. Long press on your home screen and tap widgets. From there you should find a widget for your Bluetooth settings.
