    I updated to Android 9 last night on my Galaxy S9+. After updating, I noticed the hide navigation bar button is now missing. It wouldn't be such a big deal if the navigation bar was see-through like it was in Android 8, but now it is now solid in most apps, which is annoyingly reducing the viewable screen size. I am aware of the Gestures setting that has been added to the Navigation Bar settings in Android 9. This option still leaves visible lines at the bottom of the screen. The hide button was a much more viable option for full screen visibility. Is there any way to hide the navigation bar in Android 9?

    1. Settings > Display > Navigation bar
    2. Select Full screen gestures
    3. Turn off Gesture hints
    This removes the navigation bar to allow full screen view. Then you can use the swipe gestures to navigate.
