Android Q Beta 2 landed earlier today, with a significant set of changes to the gesture system originally introduced via Android Pie. New gestures can not release as much space as Apple, as they still need a navigation bar, but they are definitely similar to iOS, allowing you to pull the "pill" in any direction to switch apps (finally .)
Moving to a running application from the Home screen now requires you to enter and select the multitasking menu instead of turning right to the last open application. Similarly, you can no longer navigate the long horizontal list in the multitasking interface.
Overall, the changes seem to coincide with what the XDA has noticed hidden in their recent Pixel Launcher experiments, and the animation aspects reminisce of an error we thought we noticed in Android Q Beta 1
Additionally, the style of the navigation bar can also be changed completely. The XDA detects a setting (changing by ADB), which allows a navigation bar that finally leaves the return button – even if it still loses space with a large black bar. Be careful, however, because the substitution does not have full functionality. With enabled, I can not find a way to get back to the home screen, for example.
Let's hope that all these gesture changes will eventually lead to a more intuitive and really useful system.
