Android 10 offers comprehensive functions for navigation with gestures. Unlike Android 9, all three buttons on the navigation bar are replaced by gestures, with the largest change being the Back button. The problem is that the same gesture is already being used in apps to access the page menu. This has been changed in Android Q.
You can still access the page menu (also known as the hamburger menu) in Apps, but with a slight change in the gesture. Google is really pushing for all app developers to support this new form of navigation gestures. Maybe you want to get used to it now. There are two ways to access the page menu in Android Q. This depends on whether the developer supports the new navigation gestures or not. While we're waiting for apps to update, let's first explain how this works if support is not included.
Opening the page menu without app support
To access the page menu in most apps, instead of swiping Swipe now in a slight diagonal from the left edge to the center in a straight line.
In other words, wipe in at an angle of about 1
Opening the page menu with app support
Google knows that this is many of its users calls. Many are forgetting to use a diagonal, or the screen does not register the slight change in the finger path, so you go back much more than you want. This is where Google's ideal solution comes into play.
Apps that support navigation gestures in Android 10 do not change the original gesture to open the page menu. Instead, it's a bit tweaked. If you swipe right in an app with a page menu, the menu will be displayed – no angled approach is required. If the page menu is open and you re-run the gesture, the back gesture will be activated. Slightly clunky, but much more useful than the first method.
This is not a perfect solution. We assume that many users will again have difficulties, which means that Google will return to the drawing board for Android 11. Currently this is what it is. If you hate it, you can be glad that the traditional navigation bar with three buttons is still available.
