Android Q Similarities with iOS
Apparently, Android Q will look quite like iOS. Google expected to deliver Android Q at the end of this summer. Android Q beta shows us the similarities between iOS and Android Q.
Android Q is planned to release at the end of this summer and it is continuously under development. The new Gesture-based navigation of Q is more like the navigation of iPhone X and later devices.
It is known that Google is trying to remove Android’s classical back button but while trying to innovate a new back button, the solution looks similar to iPhone iOS solution. So, the new Android Q will use an inward swipe gesture. In other words, it will use an action similar to the upwards scrolling feature on iPhone with notch screens to close apps running in the background.
Chris Banes who works as Android developer relations at google tweeted about Gesture Navigation in Berlin.
One of the beta testers using the beta version of Android Q told a new setting called “Back Sensitivity”. According, to the source this setting will adjust your scrolling sensitivity.
At last, the taskbar line with Android Q also expected to become more like the iPhone X. Therefore, you will use finger gestures more than pushing buttons. Moreover, it is being expected that Android Q will translate Android to iOS like structure.
As a conclusion, there is a discussion about gesture-based UI’s lately. Most of the tech experts suggest that it is not a good solution and end-user might not like it like the traditional menu. However, we believe that gesture-based UI’s will be the future. So, as we get used to them, they are faster to use.
