Google released Android Q Beta 6 version with tweaked gesture


Android Q beta 6

Google released the Android Q Beta 6 version and stated that it is just a few weeks away from releasing the official Android Q version. That means this the final beta of Android Q for testing. Google once again tweaked the gesture in this beta version.

Google described the new back gesture below:

We’ve made further refinements to Gesture Navigation in Beta 6 based on user feedback. First, to ensure reliable and consistent operation, there’s a 200dp vertical app exclusion limit for the Back gesture. Second, we’ve added a sensitivity preference setting for the Back gesture.

The concept is that some apps let you swipe through things like slides in a gallery. So that there will be no unintentional triggering of the back button, another such example is a slider on a video.

As per 9to5Google, the back sensitivity can be changed in Settings > System > Gestures > System navigation. If you the back sensitivity, then android will give a warning message that “Higher sensitivity may conflict with any app gestures along the edges of the screen.”

For reliable and consistent operation, the app developers can take advantage of the vertical app exclusion limit, which is up to 200dp. Many users will play with this back gesture; however, there is still confusion to handle the left side of the screen.

Users can inform bugs via the Reddit Community, Android Beta Feedback app, or the issue tracker. Android Q beta 6 images are available for the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 3a, and Pixel 3a XL. It can also be installed as the Android Beta Program or OTA by manual download.
