Android Q nerfs gesture navigation if you use a third-party launcher

Here's how to join Google Messages' Beta program

This fifth beta is also the first "release candidate" build of Android Q. Developers can test their apps against Beta 5 and feel confident they'll work the same way on the final version launching later this summer.

Google is gearing up to release the 10th version of its OS, still codenamed Android Q. The successor to Android 9.0 Pie is now at Beta 5 with developers and fans now testing it on their devices. In case the dark mode is not enabled, the regular bright white boot animation will be shown when you reboot your Pixel phone.

Basically, if you use a third party launcher in beta 5, you can not use gesture navigation. Instead, Android will move to an iOS-style gesture bar. Previously, you'd long-press the home button to access Assistant. Google hasn't given a detailed description of exactly how this will work but likely users will be swiping inward on the screen from the bottom left or bottom right corners since dragging down from the top section of the display opens the notification panel.

Oil prices drop as trade tensions stoke economy worries
Lower economic growth typically means reduced demand for commodities such as oil. "There has been no progress in the U.S". EDT (2030 GMT) from the American Petroleum Institute, an industry group, followed by the EIA on Wednesday morning.

It seems that Android Q will bring pull-down anywhere to bring the notification bar and quick-action buttons.

Adding to that, gesture-based navigation was not ideal with third-party launchers either. That is to say; when Android Q rolls out, third party launcher users will see Androids former 3-button layout.

Google will be launching Android Q later this summer, and kicked off its beta program for the new OS on Google Pixel phones in March. It wouldn't be Google if a few things didn't get renamed in an update, but all joking aside, I think the new phrases get the point across much better.
