I’ve recently released NetworkEvents v. 1.0.2. In case, you don’t know it, it’s an Android library listening network connection state and change of the Wifi signal strength. This version has small improvements:

  • Updated ping method in NetworkHelper class.
  • Detection of Internet access in WiFi network works faster and is more reliable.
  • Added example of usage of NetworkEvents with Dagger in example-dagger directory in the repository of the project.

Right now, we check Internet connection in a different way. Instead of sending HEAD or GET request to a specific website like www.google.com, we just ping IP address. If you want to know why, read an article about The Story Behind a DNS Legend.
