How to Enable the Hidden System UI Tuner in Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Google had announced the latest version of Android 6.0 or Marshmallow back in August and the first set of devices running the latest version were released. Android 6.0 Marshmallow comes with quite a lot of new features and improvements over the previous version.

One of the important features of this version apart from the new platform features like fingerprint support and Doze power saving mode, is the new permissions model that streamlines the app install and update process. Android 6.0 also comes with a hidden System UI Tuner which provides additional tools to customize the device.
