  1. As someone said here earlier, they should remove the back button and just let the pill be on the bottom, then you swipe it to left to go back and to the right to get to the recent apps view. Also the appdrawer should be accessable again via swipe anywhere on the homescreen.

  2. As always, you can bet on Google to make a mess out of something. One of the largest tech corporations in the world and this is what we get. It's just mind boggling.
    1. Remove the back button from system-wide UI. It has always been incoherent and unpredictable. It belongs in apps. Apps developed or updated to work with Android P should use their own back button functionality.
    2. Sliding through the home button to switch apps is cool, but without the back button, it becomes much more intuitive and can fill the whole left and right spaces of the UI.
    3. And for the love of god, let users have some control over that hideous Google search bar, do you really have to put it everywhere? On the app-switching screen? Really?
    You control 80% of the mobile OS market. You have literally zero competition, apart from a closed source OS that only ships on tailor-made, overpriced hardware. Have the courage to implement some drastic changes, instead of making users suffer through this mess.

  3. Okay so it's been almost a day of me running this on my daily Google pixel 2 XL and the only thing I find annoying is the relocation of the multi-window button. I use that feature a lot and it's really really inconvenient now. Otherwise is extremely snappy, responsive and stable so I would recommend it for daily use.

  4. 7.0 Nougat: Split-screen multitasking and quick apps switcher.
    8.0 Oreo: Floating apps window and picture-in-picture ( YouTube & Chrome video ).
    9.0 P_____: Apps switcher gestures and live app cards.

  5. Nice video. I remember the days when Google would introduce it's new OS and I couldn't wait until my carrier pushed that OTA update to my phone. With Android P I definitely wouldn't mind having it, (now these features are cool in all) but not one is a "must have" or a "can't wait for" feature, to me.

  6. The gesture based system looks fine as is but seems like a somewhat convoluted alternative to the already standard navbar buttons.

    Also, I maaaay be spoiled by my Z2 Play's one button nav gestures which makes the fingerprint scanner at the bottom the home, back, and recents button via swipe gestures and long press for Google Assistant, basically the iOS take on things before the iPhone X ditched the home button.

  7. I don't mind the new swipe up to access multitasking, but when I just want to get to my appdrawer I have to see that ugly quick flash of the multitasking screen. Even if I do it in one big swipe up, it's no longer silky smooth like it was before. It's such an eyesore I thought it was a bug at first. I hope they do something about that before it's fully released.
