    It's only available when full screen Gestures is used since you lose the pill to activate GA. When using the other navigation options the corner swipes are disabled.
    Is it still 'swipe up from bottom corners' to activate GA same as Beta 4 or have they changed them to Swipe in horizontally from the bottom corners?

    Yeah I think it still makes sense to keep it on the pill when using that mode. For full screen the corners makes sense.
    See what I mean in full gestures
    If it shows in the corner then give me option to eliminate in the pill , plus squeeze it hasBeta 5?-20190710_150315.jpeg

    If you that works just fine. I don't really get the Google Assistant just sure because if you had the little Google assistant I called on the search bar widget it does the same thing unless you already in an application.

    And another update, for some reason my RCS is still trying to verifying my phone number I don't get it...

    Yeah when I'm in apps that's when it was a challenge to activate GA. I disabled the squeeze feature because it got annoying with my car mount.

    I see, gotcha gotcha. I usually just activate Google Assistant by saying that key phrase or in the home screen so that new icons aren't that big of a deal to me.like I said, RCS still is still trying to verify my number which is still very frustrating cuz I don't know what the heck is going on.

    Hmm, weird but when I'm in my frequently used apps they seem to be in full screen mode. Kind of strange. Only happens when I access it when I'm in a another app. seems to be a bug because they are bleeding over into the notification bar. I don't think it's supposed to do that. Pixel 2

    Definitely feels a lot snappier as mentioned. Hating the Google Search bar on the Home screen being dark grey even when light mode is selected

    Honestly, I I've gotten so used to the Google search my widget as the mainstay the gray color blends in with the black background of any wallpaper actually. Furthermore, I never activate Google Assistant from within another application so for me, the new gestures activate Google Assistant on home screen or from within another application don't really matter to me too too much. I had to remove my photos of full times to get the gestures from within an application going back to home screen to work smoothly. Everything does feel snappier. Like I said, the cellular data connection is now outlined in white like the Wi-Fi symbol is.

    Snappy update or not, Google can cram it for limiting the dark theme boot animation to the Pixel 3s. Jerks!

    Already, just installed successfully beta 5. Optimizing applications always takes an hour and a half and 2 hours I don't understand why I barely have any applications in my phone but whatever. LTE symbol on the top is now outlined and white just the Wi-Fi symbol is. And of course the UI smoother. I'm trying to get my RCS to work even though I still can't.
    OK. RCS. If you are using Android Messages and can't get it to show status connected, uninstall carrier services. Then reinstall them from the play store. Go to settings- apps- messages and clear storage both data and cache. When you open messages it may say you can't use chat on your device. Restart the phone. Go back into messages and it should get you to enable chat. Then allow it to set up chat and it should work. The main issue is the carrier services. Had issues on husbands pixel 2 XL and my Samsung S7 edge and it was carrier services that was the key. Although you have to clear storage in messages as well.

    One issue I have had is that gestures keep reverting to 3 button navigation without me going to settings. I am using Action Launcher and the gestures have been working for me with it but then they crash and default back to 3 button navigation and my custom coloured theme and icon shape go back to default as well.

    Didn't have these issues with beta 4

    Seems more polished to me too. Is it me or does the OS especially the gestures feel smoother. I'm using the new features system and for beta 4 I ended up going back to the middle gestures setting not the full blown gestures bc it was buggy but right now after using it for about 2 hrs seems way smoother and responsive.

    I believe they removed support for full gestural nav with 3rd party launchers in this beta

    Okay, I just finished. My phone is a Pixel 3, my WiFi downloaded at 9Mbps, and I have a total of 73 apps including the ones I don't know why they're there.

    I timed the "optimizing apps" activity. It took 41 minutes. I went along at a good clip till about 80% then it slowed down to 95% and then went ahead and finished. Sure, I'd be happier if it downloaded the update and optimized the apps all in 5 seconds but it is what it is.

    No. I'm using Nova launcher and my gestures work fine. I do have a double-tap on the home screen to call up the App Drawer set in Nova. All the other gestures are Android Q5.

    It's working fine.

    actually, I thought that's exactly what happened with beta 5. Google stop full screen navigation gestures with third party launchers
