Android Q: Google will probably replace the back button with a gesture - so it can be activated

By  Linky Johnson 2019-04-25 1053 0

With Android Pie, Google has introduced the new gesture control in Android, which will be revised again with the upcoming Android Q version and many weaknesses of the first implementation ermerzt. As has been known for some time, the developers want to separate from the back button for complete development. This can already be seen in Beta 2 of the operating system and can already be used by a detour.




The gesture control of Android Pie or Android Q does not appeal to everyone, but it is the future or already present the main navigation in the operating system. Google's developers are also busy eradicating the vulnerabilities, and especially the many beta versions of Android Q for trying different things. Now it stands out that it will go to the back button on the collar.


The back button has survived despite the change to the gesture navigation in Android Pie, but with Android Q is likely to change. XDA Developers have now discovered that the beta 2 of Android Q already contains a corresponding implementation and extends the back button practically across the entire display and triggers this on a swipe from the left or right edge of the smartphone. This can be seen in the following video.


This is how it can be activated

If you want, you can already activate this feature and even try it out, according to XDA Developers (I have not tested it). To do this you need to execute some ADB commands (read the article in the source to the end) and the back function can already be triggered by the swipe.


Incidentally, this is shown by a short-back button. It is quite possible that the action can be canceled by a slow swipe.
