Remove features - less coding - fewer coding experts - less payroll - more revenue

Don't think it's quite that simple... they've removed some stuff and added other stuff... although some of the choices of what they've removed are a little odd, I don't think these gestures being removed are amongst them. They were always a weird stopgap solution.

Coming from BlackBerry10 to Android, the three swipe up gestures at bottom left, centre, right (for recent apps, home screen, back) while also being able to minimize the three virtual buttons to basically just three small horizontal lines at bottom, for me that is almost priceless on my phone. For me, it works extremely well and is deep baked in muscle/mind memory. If they do away with that, for me I think it would be a significant impact to adapt to something else, almost as comparably bad as if they decided to install a physical home button.

Obviously you won't agree, but the fact it was copied from BB10 kinda proves my point.

There's no "if" though, it is done.

You should be able to accomplish the same thing without a PC by using Shizuku.
