    Doesn't pertain to me, but I know many of you guys prefer them.

    "It seems that Google has decided to just prevent users from enabling gesture navigation when the default launcher is changed to a third-party app."

    I am using Nova and Android Q gestures. I do call the app drawer by double-tapping the home screen.

    From what I read from that piece it looks like it's set for Beta 5, which should be launching in the coming days.

    "We examined the SystemUI APK from Q beta 5 and confirmed that the NavigationModeController class has added a method to disable gesture controls when the default launcher is switched to a non-system app."

    As I said in another thread, gestures default to 3 button navigation when using Action Launcher.

    Now I'm running beta 5 and my Nova Launcher is working just like it did before. The gestures work and I've set Nova for a double-tap to call the App Drawer.

    You can still change it back to full gestures. But it will be locked down in Beta 6.

    It is pretty unusable now. Can't keep changing it back every 5 minutes. And it is that bad on my phone.

    They need to allow icon packs with native pixel launcher. Then people might not want to change to another launcher.

    Hmm...since last night's OTA, I've only had to change it back once for AL. Does it revert back to three buttons on a restart?

    Just checked. No it doesn't...

    I see what you mean now. It keep reverting back to Pixel Launcher within a few minutes of selecting Action Launcher. Pretty irritating..

    It didn't start happening till after I did a restart this morning.

    I think they are completely blocking gestures in beta 6 so this halfway turning the buttons back on thing is probably designed to irritate us enough to stay with PL.

    Here is where Chris Lacey of Action Launcher talks about he believes that the incombatibilty will only be temporary.

    I know it's not the stock gestures but Vivid N.G. works really well with beta 5. Very much like OnePlus gestures and it's working great with Nova.
