Why I don't have the gesture navigation system in my Xperia xz2 Whit Android 9?

I update my phone to Android 9 Pie. And I go to put on this new feature, but I don't see it. My model is H8216. That feature must be here, in the system section on settings(check the photos) But it don't be. (Sorry for my english, I'm Spanish)Screenshot_20181209-211715.png

Re: Android Pie Gestures

Hello everyone! Slightly smiling Face

I'm sorry for the late reply in regards to all your questions about gesture navigation.

As some of you have already noticed, we currently have not included gesture navigation in Android Pie, and cannot comment on future plans to add it. However, we will continue to listen to customer feedback and endeavor to evolve Xperia smartphones based on their needs.

I will make sure to forward everyone's feedback regarding gesture navigation! Slightly smiling Face

Re: Android Pie Gestures

Yes, Sony, please add gestures in coming update! it is essential to use the screen efficiently. Normal task bar uses up too much space. 

 

Thanks

Hi @Chris9991, I'll make sure to forward your feedback as well! Slightly smiling Face

@Tre1300, that's a good alternative, thank you so much for posting this! As always, be very careful when using ADB unless you are 100% sure that you know what you are doing. That goes more for the others users and not you though! Slightly smiling Face

Have a great day to the both of you.

Re: Android Pie Gestures

In my opinion its not essential! its a nice to have feature that should be optional. but i understand that many are looking for this new feature.

 

whats more important is that Sony has not completely implemented night mode in ui nor you can use the all white option. dev settings are there but have no effect. it looks like someone got fired during work when he has not finished it. Why the **bleep** should i use night mode in daylight and i'm not allowed to chnage it to complete white ui like in Pixel 3 or AOSP as google intended it?

Re: Android Pie Gestures

Hello everyone!

I'm sorry for the late reply. I have been out of office due to vacation.

@z3c_user, you are correct. Not everyone is interested in gesture navigation but a lot of users seems to have been looking forward to it!

Regarding the night mode, do you mean a totally black theme/skin, that can also be changed to different colours?

@Abdullah112, I will make sure to forward your feedback! Slightly smiling Face

Have a nice day!
