Android 10 offers some super cool gestures that allow you to navigate with intuitive swipes on your device. But did you know that this headlining feature is not enabled by default? To get the most out of Android 10, you need to enable gesture navigation.
If you've seen the Android 10 gestures and received the update, you'll probably be confused as to why there are no instructions and why these navigation gestures are nowhere to be found. In the following I will highlight two things in detail: how to activate them and how to use each new gesture.
Turn on Gesture Navigation
First, open the Settings app. Scroll down and select "System". Then tap Gestures on the following screen. Select "System Navigation" there. The default option for most models is "2-button navigation". Touch "Gesture Navigation" to change your navigation settings.
Clicking the gear icon next to the "Gesture Navigation" button allows you to change the sensitivity of the Back button. Note, however, that higher sensitivity may affect the gestures in some apps.
After enabling Gesture Navigation, you can go home, return to the menu of recently used apps, switch between apps, and open. Wipe the wizard from the edges of your screen inside. Watch the demo videos below to see how they all work! S
