Is there a way to clear recently opened pages without having to swipe each one individually?

As of now, no. I've always been one to clear recent almost every time before I lock my phone. But with this device it hasn't slowed it down one bit keeping them open.

I've seen every OEM except Motorola implement this. I guess whenever Google decides to make this part of the OS we will get it at that time. Until then there is no clear all. Just have to swipe away one at a time.

If you have a ton of open tiles to get rid of, just imagine it's Google doing a reboot of "Fruit Ninja" called "Recent App Ninja" and see how fast you can clear them out.

One thing I did to clean that clutter up a bit was to disable the new feature, which I hated, that listed every single browser page as a separate tile in recent apps. Horribly disorganized...

Why do they need to be swiped away at all? Even when the phone gets reset they don't leave and swiping them away doesn't speed up the phone! I've gotten pretty familiar with flipping those cards! I like it how it is! I'm brand new to the Nexus experience and I'm trying to appreciate why Google has made some of the decisions that they've made in lollipop. So far so good! I had an HTC m8 before and I have to say, I'm not missing anything except the extremely excellent television remote and its application! But, IMHO, the Nexus has trumped that phone in many other areas/..Camera(blows the m8 away), front firing speakers (yes I said it) are louder with better midrange and are easier to listen to, Bluetooth connectivity (blows the m8 away), all antennas are Motorola supreme! My m8 got to the point where it was dropping calls regularly! I have been a Motorola fan since the micro TAC elite! Haha! Bet very few of you remember those days! But, even back then, Motorola was known to have the best voice connection with any service! The calls were always crystal clear! If nexus was not married to Motorola, I would not have bitten!

I was just answering the question the OP has. I have a Nexus 6 and love my phone. I like the software as it is, with the exception of a few bugs. Some people just don't like having a lot of apps in the recent apps section and want to get rid of them all at once instead of swiping them away individually. Swiping away apps and pages on this phone does take a while to do especially if you have had your phone on for a while and haven't done it in a while. I can see why a clear all button could be useful.

If you pay attention to this review, DetroitBORG says and shows there's a way to clear all opened pages at once. I've seen people ask this, and I'm not sure why they're unable to do it, when his phone is?

EDIT: Apologies, that feature handles the clearing of multiple notifications, not open pages.

It's not that they need to be swiped away¡ It's that if you want to easily flip back and forth between select apps you may regularly have open, it's easier to occasionally clear the table of the extraneous one-off's¡ Many people will have no desire for that ability, but as is clear by the OP's request and a few other responses, there are those that do¡ That some OEM's provide said functionality only reinforces the point that there is some demand for it, and history has shown that Google occasionally integrates innovations developed by its partners into the baseline OS¡

To the rest of the post re: the Nexus 6, I absolutely agree¡ And I remember when the MicroTAC came out - I was quite jealous. Managed to find my original cellphone (and man, was it compact!), below¡

In the beginning using Lollipop, I would get annoyed about the excess cards in there. But now I just ignore them, and the phone runs fine. So no need to clear them for me.

Do you think clean master would get rid of all those open apps?
