How To Activate The New Gestures In The Android Q Beta?


Android Q’s 3rd developer preview came with various fresh features, and one of those features are the amazing iPhone-like gestures. Immediately they are enabled, the home button will no longer be visible. Instead, you will scroll up to head home. And for navigation via applications, simply swipe left or right on your display to do whatever you want.

After using it for sometime, you will surely fancy how seamless switching between iOS 12 and Android Q is. Some do not still like the gestures though, agreed, but we all know that is way things are initially with fresh features.
