From the above screenshot the blue colour icons means active while the gray icons means not active. i.e you can see the Google Play Store, Facebook, Gmail and others have the blue icon displaying which means I allow them to connect to the internet. The Chrome app have gray icons which means have stopped it from connecting to the internet.
Did your device have the feature or not? How helpful is disabling apps to connect to internet? Expecting your feedback in the comment section.
