Google has apparently decided to make these gestures smarter in the Android operating system in order to compensate for the many problems of navigation gestures on smartphones.
Since the phones became full-screen, companies have incorporated navigation gestures into the display instead of embedding them. As long as these options were visible, the user could simply click on them to go back, go to the Home menu, or open a list of recent apps. But in order to achieve the goal of making the screen full screen, the companies decided to give the user the right to choose to do these three things with gestures during an update. For example, instead of tapping the back key, swipe up on the same side.
Since that happened, many Android users who loved working with a full-screen phone have decided to use it. To use. But there are many reports that the back navigation gesture (Back key) does not work properly. Sometimes the user just wants to go back but goes back to the main menu, goes to the apps menu, and that's not very interesting. Google has been working on this feature for a long time to improve the situation. But it seems that it has finally found a way to improve this problem.
Google wants to be the second It is also the last day of the I/O ceremony, to talk about a feature called predictive back navigation, which translates to "predictive back navigation" in Persian. It seems that Google once again wants to use its high ability in the field of artificial intelligence and machine learning to enable Android to learn over time, based on the use of previous gestures, the desired gesture that the user wants to do. Simply put, when you go back a few times, Android predicts the next time you want to go back, depending on the movement pattern of your hand, so that it will no longer be in error.
Users can increase the sensitivity of the back gesture
Users since the full screen navigation gesture Added to Android 10, they were not satisfied with the function of the back key. Google also apparently knew that some users might not welcome this feature, so it did not rule out the possibility of using three touch options. If you are so tired of these mistakes that you can not wait for the release of the new Google update, just go to the settings and in the section related to navigation gestures, activate the same three touch options. Of course, in the same menu, you can also increase the sensitivity of touch gestures. It is recommended that you try this option first before returning to the previous situation, and if you do not get an answer, activate the above three options. These settings may be available in different ways on different Android phones. So you may have to go more than two ways to reach it.
This update may not seem important at first glance, but note that if this problem occurs to you, you will definitely be upset. . Personally, I have tried to record audio in WhatsApp many times, but I went back one step (Samsung phone with Android 12). This problem still persists and was the same a few years ago with Android 10. There is another problem when you reduce the sensitivity.
The next point is that in some phones, these gestures work properly and do not have a particular problem. So if an update has not been released for your well-performing phone, do not worry. Maybe this update is considered as one of the features of Android 13 and will be released with it for all Android phones. We are unaware of this, so we will have to wait and see what information is released about the new navigation gestures at the Google I/O event (May 11).
