One of the most well-liked tweaks supplied by many third-party Android launchers/residence display screen replacements seems prefer it could be coming to Google’s Pixels. According to a report by the oldsters at XDA Developers, the Pixel Launcher in Android Q Beta 5 could embrace a gesture that enables swiping down to develop the notification shade from wherever on the homescreen.
If you’ve got used the immensely common Nova Launcher, you then’re most likely aware of the idea. If not, simply think about having the ability to swipe down from wherever in your homescreen to pull down the notification shade as a substitute of getting to begin on the high of your display screen, as traditional. There’s actually not way more to it than that, however given the recognition of the characteristic in third-party launchers, it is doubtless to be a welcome addition.
Unlike most third-party launchers, it does not wait till the gesture is full to start the pull-down animation, both. This easily tracks your finger whereas it strikes (although the video does not do the very best job of exhibiting that off).
It’s potential that Beta 5 might land tomorrow (Google is understood for pushing out these updates on Wednesdays), so we’d all have extra particulars about this and different options hiding in Beta 5 quickly.
