    Hi just installed new software upgrade on my s9 today- Jan 30 2019 - and there no longer is an option to hide the navigation bar. Anyone know a way round this or is it a case of waiting for the next upgrade?

    On the left side of the navigation bar, is there no toggle switch to tap?

    That was removed on Pie.

    The main reason was, there's the gestures option: Settings>Display>Navigation Bar>Full Screen Gestures.
    Basically instead of having to swipe up and have the buttons show then pressing, a single swipe will trigger home, back, or recents depending on where you swipe.
    There is also a toggle placed on the pull down shade for turning the navigation bar on and off.
    There are reports at the end of beta that due to popular feedback from beta, they will bring back the button to the bar on a future update.
    ManiacJoe and Tim1954 like this.
