When swiping up to switch between apps I can't seem to copy text like you're meant to be able to, is anyone else having this issue? In home settings suggestions I have 'Overview selection' on.. any ideas?

Are you running a third party launcher? A lot of those new overview features require the use of the stock launcher.

Have you double checked that Overview Selection is toggled on in your homescreen settings?

And this. Correct order would have been 2nd pic, 3rd pic, then the 1st pic. Sorry.

Yeah it's on in suggestions and I'm using the stock launcher. Google support couldn't fix it so made me send a bug report and are looking into it.

Since the Google app updated yesterday this is now working for me with English UK as the language, didn't take too long for them to sort it!

Thanks for the language tip guys! Mine wasn't working, because it was set to "English (Netherlands)". Setting it to English (UK) solved it!
