The forthcoming Android Q Collection, which I received in mid-January, revealed a lot of serious changes in the next version of Android. The system-wide dark mode, the reconfiguration of privacy and permission, as well as the new desktop mode were the most important, but then I learned that Google prototype updated navigation gesture controls that get rid of the buttons back. The new Android beta for all three generations of smartphones Pixel still has experimental Google changes for gesture navigation, and you can enable them right now with several hidden settings.
If you want to see how the new Android Q gestures are compared to Android Gestures of the Pie, here's the video I made last month. Please note, however, that since then I have found many more Android Q gestures, including that they are (partially) customizable!
Google probably will not allow you to actually set up navigation gestures in the latest issue of Android Q. What I have found is just their prototype feature, which they probably use to test different gesture settings to see which ones are the best. However, since this feature is available, we could also use it to improve Android Pie Tweets.
How to get rid of the "Back" button for a full gesture on Android Q
Special thanks to the developer XDA Zacharee1
Before showing you some commands, let me explain how it works. There is a hidden Settings.Global setting called "quickstepcontroller_gesture_match_map" that takes a 6-digit or more integer value. The advantage of taking numbers from 1-7 (0, 1, and 8 is ignored), and the order in which you place the numbers determines what actions will make the gestures of the victimization of the pills.
Here are the possible actions:
- QuickStep (enter the review of the latest programs)
- QuickScrub (scroll through the latest programs by moving your finger to the left and the right on the tablet by holding it down)
- Back (back)
- QuickSwitch (quickly switches to the previous app)
- Null [nothing to do]
- Current (launch of the default assistant program)
- NotificationPanel (down the notifications panel)
Here's the order in which the gestures are displayed:
- Swipe Down
- Spell Left
- Spell Right
I e did not understand what the 5th and 6th gestures. Regardless of what I tried, I could not change any home button presses and long press the home button. I will update this article if I learn how to reassign these actions.
Here are some examples of ADB teams that can be sent to change the Android Q tweaks for the better. (For the following ADB commands, if you are using PowerShell on Windows, follow the command with. "(Without quotes). If you are using macOS or Linux, follow the command" ./ "(no quotation).
Example 1: New Gesture back scroll down for notifications, old QuickSwitch animation
This is my preferred install right now, since the new transition animation for switching between the latest applications, as shown in the video earlier, is a bit blinking. This ADB command will do so that you can hold the tablet to the left to go back (make a backup back button), swipe down to lower the notification bar (very useful!), And finally save Android Pie to the last scroll.
- Open the command line or terminal window in the directory where the binary ADB file is stored.
- Connect your Pixel phone to your computer.
- To get rid of the button, enter this command:
adb shell layout setting global quickstepcontroller_hideback 1
- Run the following command to change the behavior of the tablet:
adb shell layout global global quickstepcontroller_gesture_match_map 173255
Example 2: New gesture back, swipe down for notifications, new QuickSwitch animation
If you want to try the new Android Q transition animation for the last action of the program, you can do this, putting 2 in the fourth position by 1. Warn that the transition is a bit interesting as it still continues to work and that you can not move your finger to the right on the tablet while on the main screen. At least it looks nice.
- Follow steps 1-3 from the previous section.
- Run this command:
adb shell layout settings put global quickstepcontroller_gesture_match_map 173155
Help! My phone crashes! I want to return the old gestures!
Remember when I said that the benefits take a value of 6 or more digits? Well, I meant that. If you set any integer that consists of 5 or fewer digits, the method can not work with it, and SystemUI will collapse again. Fortunately, it's trivial. You can either re-enter one of the above commands, this time using the 6-digit value, or you can reset the gestures by executing the following commands:
adb shell parameters set global quickstepcontroller_hideback 0 adb shell settings remove global quickstepcontroller_gesture_match_map
Have fun playing with new gestures on Android Q! This article gives you only a small piece of work that Google carries out in order to improve gesture management in Q. In this section, at least 6 other hidden values of settings. can not be enabled using ADB. I am again confused with the Android Q beta on Google Pixel 3 XL to see if there is anything more I can share. Other Tips and Tricks for Android Q:
