How to Reset Network Settings in Android M

Android M now allows you to reset your network settings with a built-in option. Google launched the new Android M Developer Preview for everyone to try out their next iteration on the Nexus devices. We have already done several tutorials on how to install this Android M on your Nexus device. And with that, we have been exploring and playing around with the preview for any new features.

As per Google, there are many new features and enhancements coming to the final version of Android M — but not everything is available as of yet in the developer preview build. Android Pay, app linking, better battery/power and charging features, app permissions and fingerprint support were just some of the main features announced. There are more little tweaks and features included. This is one of them — “Network settings reset”.
