If you want to personalize more of the swiping features, you can do this.

  • Access ‘Settings’
  • Go with ‘Display’ and then choose ‘Navigation Bar’
  • Within the ‘Navigation Type’, go with the option ‘Swipe Gestures’
  • If you want to customize  the gestures, you can also choose ‘More Options’  and then choose ‘Swipe from buttons’ as well as ‘Swipe from bottom and sides’.
  • If you want to change the sensitivity of the gestures, feel free to do it, especially if you have a back case (or cover) for the phone. Increase its sensitivity so you are able to properly use the feature.

Let’s say that you choose ‘Swipe from bottom and sides’ and this is how the new control should work:

To open recent apps, you should wipe up and then hold on from the screen bottom

To go back, you can swipe inwards. You are able to do it from the screen’s either side

To launch Google Assistant, you should swipe diagonally from the screen bottom corner (either side)

To go to the home screen, you should be able to swipe up from the screen bottom

Be advised that it may take a while to get used to this kind of thing. Make time to ‘play around’ and don’t get frustrated when you don’t make it the first time.
