Android Pie Gestures

Hi, 

Just updated to Android Pie but I'm missing the gestures control. 

Anyone knows if this will be added in a future update? 

Regards

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

Or, maybe Google made it exclusive to their Pixel lineup. No one knows, yet.

Hi @DreamerDJ @TheSireLeroy

 

According to some interviews at Xperia XZ3 launch, Sony won't adopt gesture navigation.

Re: Android Pie Gestures

Can we make them implement it? Or at least give us the option to enable the feature. I was really hoping to get the new gesture navigation on my xz2 compact.

I hope they are going to implement it, although I also read that it is optional for manufacturers with custom rom.

So it'll be a wait-and-see. 

Thanx anyway.

No my friend, you are wrong hhhhh.

it's already available on ( Essential phone ) + ( OnePlus 6 ) + ( Nokia 7 Plus )  with Android Pie -  9.0

which means, it's not Exclusive for Google Pixel phones !
