Google has added motion settings on Android Q


The transfer of Android Q to the motion control system has caused some users to be unhappy. Although swiping turns out to be more practical than keyboard controls, its implementation in the initial version of the updated operating system left a lot to be desired. Users experience many problems, especially with the "backspace" gesture, where the system takes almost every touch on the left side of the screen, even if the user does not plan to go back one step. Therefore, Google decided to add the ability to adjust the sensitivity of this movement to Android Q.

According to a Google Pixel 3 XL user, he received a new version of Android Q, which should be the fifth beta of the update. The update includes additional parameters to restore motion sensitivity, which was previously unavailable in the operating system. This is a slider that allows you to adjust the style you need to drag your finger from the left edge of the screen to go back one step.

Thanks to him, he managed to eradicate returns almost randomly, which can often reduce all progress in an app or game. Now, to return, you need to drag your finger clearly from the left side of the screen towards the center, before touching it.
