    Do Google engineers realise that even smallest change in usability eg. "Close all apps" results into total of 5.7 person years of learning time (unproductive expense) ? Please be mindful of user frustration, while making changes to a perfectly functional feature, else users and enterprises will start looking for alternatives.

    With every update, I have seen the shortcut and navigation changes. Do Google engineers realise that every changes results into, an unproductive time loss to humanity ? Eg. How to close app ? With latest change, it takes 2-3 mins to figure it out. So total loss is 3*1,000,000,00 min, or close to 6 person year of loss to humanity. Please be aware that users have better things to do in life, rather than researching "how to" on Android.

    Go into Settings, search for feedback, and send them a suggestion. (But don't expect them to act on that one. They work on important issues - like seamless updates, which some of us were asking for since 2009 and didn't get until almost 10 years later [not that it's very difficult, we were using the technology at least as far back as 1989, in a project I was writing updates for] - so we're now seeing 30 year old technology).

    We all see the same changes, we just get used to them. 5 minutes out of your life to get used to a change (that may be implemented to make a future addition easier to use) isn't much. (For instance, split screen used to be an added app, now it's part of the recents display. But they turned the display horizontal to make that easier to do. Minor change - seamless updates means that you can still use your phone while it's updating, and if the update blows in the middle, you still have a working, if not yet updated, phone. Much more important.)

    Maybe I'm unusually flexible, but I've never found any of these changes to be grossly taxing. If I was required to do a backflip every time I wanted to unlock my phone, then maybe I'd start complaining. But this kind of stuff? Nah.
