    I'm on beta 3 of Android Q and so far I'm liking the new gestures system for navigating. It took me a few hours to get used to. At first it was a little confusing but like anything else with practice it gets easier. Now that I sort of got used to it I'm enjoying it. It does feel very similar to iOS when it comes to gestures which is a good thing because apples gesture system is good.

    I have to completely agree. when I flashed and installed beta 3 last night like I said, it took a little over an hour which was shockingly long but the new navigation gestures I need you for it is they making iOS a lot but it feels natural and into it. Voice typing seems so much faster, smoother, more intuitive as well. I'm not sure if everyone is aware of this yet, but I was really on Android police.com that in developer settings Google is allowing users to now force a dark mode for every element of the UI. If you going to developer settings and search override, there's an override for dark mode which looks pretty cool. The article states that on some applications it looks broken but for the most part it's pretty good. Also, applications seemed to run a lot smoother.

    Oh snap I had the regular dark mode enabled which was awesome didn't realize there was one that would force it on every app including third party apps. Thanks for the heads up.

    Yes I didn't realize that either until I read Android police.com like I said. Especially pretty sweet forces dark mode on everything!

    Asked this in a different thread, but I'm an engineer so pardon for wanting more data points...lol

    What's your guys' assessment of the new gestures in conjunction with accessing the hamburger button? How does the UI handle it when you're trying to do one or the other?
    Really looking forward to see a complete gestures solution from Google.

    Okay, one other area of beta 3 Android Q that finally got fixed, are visual voicemail notifications. Now, I don't get many visual voicemails at all, however, when you get a voicemail Android Q beta 3 will now alert and notify you that you have a voicemail finally!

    Quick aside, what VVM are you using? I've used Google Voice strictly as a VM app and have never missed a VM.

    I dont see VVM in Google Dialer. I think that might be carrier dependent(Im on ATT). I have been using Google Voice for years because of this oem absence.

    BlackBerry 10 had a great flow to its gesture-based OS. Google should look to that so-called 'inferior' OS for inspiration to fix their own haphazard gesture-based approach in Android Q. Here's to hoping that BlackBerry will introduce a BB10 style launcher for Android Q - that is if they can actually continue to offer devices through their partners in the future.

    I really like what I'm seeing with Q. Finally, a gesture system that makes sense. And more importantly, the options for users to pick their own preference. This is what Android is about: choice.

    Also appreciate them finally bringing a native dark theme. The rest of Q looks pretty good, too.

    Hopefully the hardware matches up when the Pixel 4 lands. Besides the necessary specs (RAM, dual cameras on the back), I'm really hoping for a new and better design language overall.

    see now, I couldn't agree more! Thank you sir, not only is Google in beta 3 giving us choices, but the gesture is a complete sense,! Even going into the app draw for application is fast!

    Are you using the beta's dark mode? If so, your battery savings could probably be attributed to that.

    Yeah I'm using dark mode, plus in developer settings I enable the override option for dark mode forcing in all third party applications.

    So it's been a couple of days now that I've been using Android Q's beta 3 new gestures system the one that gets ride if the back button etc and I've already gotten used to it and find navigating so much easier. I love being able to swipe from either side to go back instead of having to press the back button. This gives me the freedom to swipe anywhere I want I stead of having to bring my finger to the bottom left and press the back button.

    completely completely agree. I love the freedom to swipe all over the screen and the UI to navigate all around the interface.
