Re: XZ1 Fingerprint gestures API missing? Half baked Android Oreo?

Hi @androlool, thanks a lot for your question regarding fingerprint gestures! Slightly smiling Face

At present there is no plan to introduce fingerprint gestures for Xperia XZ1, Xperia XZ1 Compact and Xperia XZ Premium (December, 2017).

I can see how this can be a very useful feature to have, so I will make sure to forward this internally as user feedback! Slightly smiling Face

I hope that answers your question!

That would be nice. My wife’s S8+ has fingerprint gestures and are quite useful.

 

Is better to have a function and disable it if unnecessary than not having at all.

Hi @Bhonder, I totally agree with you!

The more options/settings available, the better it is (if you can disable them so you aren't forced to use them unless you want to). Slightly smiling Face

I will make sure to forward your feedback about fingerprint gestures as well! Slightly smiling Face

Have a great day!

Android 8.1 is about to come. I hope Fingerprint Gestures are finally there (still have the phone eventough it is still not possible to unlock the bootloader and restore the Drm keys.

Hi again @androlool,

Have a great day!
