As you can see, there is a simple way to get Android N’s double tap Recents gesture on Android Lollipop and Marshmallow. How can this be possible? Let me tell you more about the “Android N-ify” Xposed module developed by the XDA developer MrWasdennnoch which can bring some Android N features to Lollipop and Marshmallow.
At the moment, it’s true that this module only supports two features of Android N: I am talking about “Double-tap recents to switch last used app” and “Settings dashboard subtitles”, but the app developer also intends to add more such features at a later time (I am talking about features such as Doze mode, Night Mode, Emergency info on lockscreen, a new notification layout and not only).
So, if you have an older, yet rooted device and you want to experiment double-tapping the Recents button to quickly switch apps, this guide if for you. With this gesture, you can switch between the last used app and current app quickly. However, to get this feature, your device must be rooted and have Xposed Framework installed.
And don’t forget that Android N-ify is a beta version and at the moment only supports Android Lollipop and Marshmallow.

- Don’t hesitate to install it like any APK file;
