Enable New Swipe Gestures on Galaxy Note 9 in Android Pie
There is no reason to deny it: Samsung has never been known for timely rollouts of major Android updates and things are no different when it comes to the latest Android 9.0 Pie one. We know how things normally happened with the Oreo update timeline, so we can only expect Android Pie to officially touch down for the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus sometime this month, with the final version rolling out the around the first quarter of 2019.
Anyway, a leaked version of the beta can already be found on the internet. As for those of you who are already enjoying a Galaxy Note 9 running on Android Pie, I have good news for you. As with all developer previews, Android P continues to surprise us with a set of quite useful changes and that’s just another example.
With the Android Pie update, you have the possibility of ditching the navigation buttons and trying out the new gestures. While the setting is not that easy to find, I am here to guide you on how to enable it in no time and something already tells me that you are about to love it. After all, as compared to the traditional navigation bar that we all know so well, the new gesture-based navigation tabs found here are significantly less intrusive, while the controls themselves are so much fluid than they once used to be. Who doesn’t want such changes?
This basically saves you precious time as you navigate around your handset. You may now swipe up from the area where the buttons used to be — swipe from the bottom-left to open the multitasking UI, swipe from the middle to go home, as well as swipe from the bottom-right to go back.
Enable New Swipe Gestures on Galaxy Note 9 in Android Pie:
- At first, you have to go to Display;
- While there, you must choose Navigation bar;
- From there, simply tap on Full screen gestures in order to enable the feature.
Have you completed the procedure? I told you that it isn’t at all a hard one!
