Hey Mi Fans!
Google I/O 2018 just kicked off and Google Released the 2nd Preview of ANDROID P.
Gesture Navigation is now official.
A swipeble bar at the bottom of the screen is now used for Navigation.
However Old School Nav. bar can still be used.

What is Gesture Navigations?
  • Generally An Android Device has Navigation Bar consisting of 3 Navigation buttons ; Back ; Home &; Recent Apps Butons.
  • Gesture Navigation is an Approach towards changing and mordernising the old navigation bar ,While overcoming the drawbacks of traditional navigational methods in android.
  • In Gesture navigation Several Gestures are used to navigate the device ,instead of old Nav bar.
  • Learn More How this work below.

One of Android's Core features has been reworked, Lets check it out.

New Swipe Gestures for Navigation

# There’s now a new Gesture in Settings.

  • You’ll now see a new gesture called “Swipe up on Home button.”
  • When enabled, the traditional virtual nav. buttons are replaced with only a back button and pill-shaped gesture bar.
  • The back button only appears when needed.

How New Navigation Gestures Work

#Back button & A Gesture bar Appears.

-When this Gesture is enabled, the traditional virtual nav buttons are replaced with only a back button and pill-shaped gesture bar.
Here's how that works-

  •   Single Tap: Go home
  •   Long press: Launch Google Assistant
  •   Short swipe up: new recent apps screen
  •   Long swipe up: App drawer
  •   Slide to right: scroll through recent apps

  • You can clearly see the difference in the Screenshots down below.
  • Gesture are fairly easy to use & also gives a modern and better a feel while using.
  • Using Gestures will also help in reducing the accidental taps on navigation bar while typing or simply in general use.

As a Techie Geek , I simply love MIUI's Full screen gestures, and i really like this change in Android itself. These Gestures do pose a brighter future for android, Hope we all can see these features in upcoming months.
