The motion controls for Android, which Google included with Android 9 Pie, have been criticized by some. Put a little too much umph in your welding up to see the latest apps you've opened and you can find yourself opening the app tray instead. Some gesture purists have looked down on Google's snapshot recording (which only appears when there is one page to move back to) and others complain that the animation while using the gesture controls is not as smooth as it should be.
- More seamless transition animation when you push straight on the pill when changing tasks.
- You can return to the previous task by turning left in the navigation bar.
- Like movements on ceertain iPhone models, it will be taking you home (new animation is included in this gesture).
- You can see your latest apps by turning up on the "pill" and holding.
- In the launcher, only one drawer tray appears in the navigation bar.
- The Notifications panel appears if you turn down the screen.
Google released the first Android Q beta last week
If they don't want to use the current guest controls, Android 9 users can choose to use the older navigation buttons, which are also available on older versions of Android. Currently there is a back button on the left, the home button in the middle and the latest apps button on the right.
