The Google Assistant is a central component of Android – Google even enabled the start of the wizard by long pressing the Home button. However, with the new Android 10 gesture controls, the Home button does not have to be pressed long. Therefore, Google has made a new gesture to replace it.
Because there are no navigation buttons for Android 10 (depending on your settings), this is now required Use gestures to invoke actions associated with buttons and long presses. When it comes to Google Assistant, the new method is not as easy as a long press of a button and requires some practice. But once you get the hang of it, you can quickly call up Google Assistant as you did before. If you still have problems, you can always use the special assistant keys or pinch sensors on some phones.
Starting Google Assistant
Swipe up from one corner of the bottom edge and slightly to the center (about 7) °). You do not have to swipe up too far, about an inch. Again, this requires some practice as it is not the simplest gesture you can perform.
If you're struggling with this gesture, there's another one you should try: Swipe in from one of the bottom corners and then quickly swipe back from the screen. So a little scouring with the thumb, which emanates from the corner. A quick back and forth.
If you still have problems, you have a few options. For one thing, phones like the LG G8 have a special Google Assistant button that lets them quickly launch the app. It's then pretty easy for Samsung users to re-program the Bixby button to start Google Assistant with either the Bixby app or a third-party option. For Pixel 3, 3 XL, and HTC U12 + users, you can program Active Edge (called HTC Edge Sense) to launch the wizard as well.
Finally there is the App Button Mapper. With this free third-party app, you can reprogram any physical key on your phone to launch an app, including Google Assistant. For more information, see the following guide.
