Home Assistant Tiles in Shade Pulldown

I was just messing around with Android 12 settings on my Pixel 3XL and found something very odd. When accessing the tiles when you pull down I guess what you call the “shade” then go into edit mode I have like 12 tiles at the very bottom that all say:

Tile Not Setup
Home Assistant

Now if I add one of them to the main screen it shows:

Tile Not Setup (scrolling to the left)
Unavailable

Any idea what these tiles are supposed to be for? Maybe some future project?

you need to set them up in App Configuration > Tiles first and then you can use them to execute a script or whatnot

Hmm, that is pretty cool. Thanks a lot.

I found this feature today by accident … pull down then click “Devices”.

I particularly like the way you can toggle a light with a press but also change the brightness by sliding left or right.

It’s a very good implementation.

oh device controls is actually separate from quick settings tiles :slight_smile:

Thanks for putting me straight.

My Quick Settings are pretty used up so Devices will probably work better for me. It’s great to have so many options.

yea device controls is much better but only available on android 11+, quick settings tiles have been around since Android 7 so has more compatibility there
