M All Android users love to hate iPhones. Yet, despite this, Android manufacturers of course seem to ctinue to borrow iPhone features for the operating system.
First, it was notch. After a wave of copiers the iPhone X, Google announced that it was doing nick support in Android P. But now, the upcoming mobile OS seems to have stolen another Key feature of the iPhone: gesture-based navigati. Google announced the new user interface ctrols at the I / O developer cference.
"As part of Android P, we introduce a new system navigati which we have been working for more than a year. A year, "said Dave Burke. , vice president of Android Engineering. "And the new design makes Android multitasking more accessible and easier to understand."

It is impossible to deny how much the Android P navigati ctrols are similar to those of the iPhone X. While Burke said that the cabinet has worked gestures for "more than a year", it is a rather vague timetable. The iPhone X was announced in September 2017 – about nine mths ago now.
Since Android was launched, it has always had a three butt system at the bottom of its platform: a multitasking butt, a home butt and a back butt. The upcoming Android P supports it.
In place of these butts is a small oblg bar. Android still calls it a "home butt", but it echoes the iPhone X's gesture navigati bar (otherwise known as the "home indicator" or "bar of the home"). Home. ")
