Navigation Bar Issue

Hi there,

 

I've been having an issue recently where the bottom navigation bar will just not go away at all when it really should. It'll still disappear for photos and videos etc, but in apps like Spotify (shown in photo) it'll still be there and it's really quite distracting. It's been happening since I updated a few days ago, is there any way I can change this? Why is this happening? Screenshot_20181013-225900.png

 Any help is much appreciated!

Re: Navigation Bar Issue

I think they made a mistake with the new Android 9 update. Because it used to go away in certain apps. But with Android 9 you got to have to choose that option to always hide the navigation buttons. Which they would go away after certain amount of time. But so far it doesn't look like they added in the gestures or that option in the subsystem menu. Like it is with other phone such as the one plus six and the essential phone. 

 

I am hoping that they see it and that they put it into the fix in the November security update.

Re: Navigation Bar Issue

Oh yes, this was the first thing that I have noticed after the update. I've noticed that on Sony native apps it goes away or it takes the background colour, but on others, like Spotify, not. And it's really bothering me because Spotify is all black and the  navigation bar pops out on white, it's an eyesore.

 

With an XPERIA smartphone from Sony, freedom is in your hands!

I think Android Pie now defaults to white instead of black when the app doesn't specify what colour the navigation bar should be, since I see that in some apps but it doesn't happen in others. I'll see if I can find out anything more about it.

Several Themes will change color and look on the navigation bar. :smileysmileywink:

Re: White menu bottom line ,how do i get it black

That may be true. However I'm not using a theme and so my navigation bar should not be looked. Which it was not when the phone was on 8.0 and I know that in 9 you should have a choice to lock it or to have it hide when. You want it too
