    If your phone's set to full gesture nav, can you swipe from either side of the screen to look through recent apps? That's not working on my 2XL. And getting back through the history of home screen settings pages is a problem, too.

    I went full gestured. I just wish the single nav bar was a pill like on two button setup.

    Swipe up slow and you will see recent apps emerge from the left.

    Take that back, swipe up slow and left or right at the same time.

    So they are giving us a choice then. Gestures or buttons. That’s cool.

    From either side is back a step not overview. Overview is swipe up from bottom part way.

    I'm kinda liking the full gestures. I had really gotten used to the 2 button set-up on the Pixel, but I can see this next phase working really well.

    The home action is so different .. I'm so used to the button tap.. really interesting.

    Well I probably would pause on the choices. Last year during the Beta the showed choices, but when the new Pixel was released they removed the choice to their implementation.

    I'll go on the limb and speculate that Pixel 4 will be full gestures only.

    OK. Got it. Now that is one weird gesture since the app drawer starts sliding up just as the edge of the first app page peeks into the frame, and the string of apps doesn't actually appear until you release the gesture. That's gonna take some getting used to. Thanks.

    They implemented the full gestures very well , different but makes sense.

    I had to go back to 2 button gestures because the full navigation was very buggy with Lucid Launcher Pro. When I swipe up it often got stuck and would crash. I found it hard to go into overview mode. Back swipe worked perfectly. The issues are with the swipe up gesture

    I spent most of the evening in the beta. i thought I was going to have trouble adjusting, especially with the app switcher where someone like me "lives". But man, I just make a lil "C" with the thumb and the switcher pops right up.

    Took a second for me to adjust from the "flick" I got going on with 9.0. But I can tell, I'm going to get along just fine with the full system. Even the back gesture seems like it will be just fine.

    Totally digging the full gestures. Works flawless on Pixel launcher, However on Nova Launcher it locks up upon a swipe up. It will not open up the app drawer no matter what and only opens the recent apps/search on swipe up before locking up for 15 seconds or so. Q is slowly taking shape and I love it thus far. I will say I am still shocked after the 3rd beta wallpapers are getting stretched after watching YouTube in landscape mode.(This is what triggers the stretching for me).

    Also curious to see how they are going to address the hamburger menu ordeal with the side swipe navigation.

    I do not like the gesture controls on ANY device. My tablet has a capacitive back button, and my phone has a mechanical back button (although I now out of pure laziness use the "Back Button" app for easy multi-tapping). I don't think any of my devices will get Q, so I'm safe (both currently on Oreo)

    Could anyone confirm if https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...pp58us.backkey works on Q? If so, I might not dread Q as much. If not, I will not know how to survive...

    The back gesture is almost impossible to initiate if you have a case on your phone, I therefore have to stay on the 2 button gesture option.

    I hope Google sees that this could be and issue for those who like adding protect to their near $1000 device

    Incipio DualPro for the Pixel 2

    I think this gesture will work better with curved screens rather than flat ones which mine also is

    I looked at that case online, didn't see why it would cause issues.

    The official word is to swipe and hold to get the app switcher, but your "C" thing is way smoother. Thanks for that.

    That's it, ain't it Boss!! ... I think we should officially rename it the C instead of swipe and hold!!

    I have the Incipio Dual Pro on the 3xl and so far the back gesture is not a problem for me. I'm just having the issue of getting used to the gesture it self.

    I guess it depends upon the case but I haven't had a problem with it on mine.
