【谷歌新系统Android P,或采用手势导航】

【谷歌新系统Android P,或采用手势导航】从Android Developers博客截图中,谷歌泄露即将发布的下一代系统Android P的一个主要特性——支持基于手势操作的导航栏。尽管不排除尝试设计的情况,但是很可能Google正在考虑如何布局手势导航,该设计采用全新布局,取消了多任务按钮,用向上滑动手势替代。可以看到(图3)右侧的多任务按钮已经取消,而中间的主按钮变成了奇怪的药丸形状,类似iphone X底部横条。

 

Android P may get iPhone X-like gestures, according to Google’s own leak

 

Google appears to have just leaked a major feature coming to Android P, the next version of its OS. According to an image that appeared briefly on the Android Developers blog for an unrelated feature, Android P will come with support for gestured based navigation – and it’s about time.

 

This is the image Google posted:

oh-look-gestures

 

Notice anything odd? Look at the navigation bar:

Nav

 

Here’s what it normally looks like on a Pixel 2 running Android O (or the current Android P beta, for that matter):

Nav-dfsda-bar

Where did the recents button go? Why is the back button using the old hollow design? And who squished the home button into a pill?

While I’d like to think Google’s Android Team got drunk and experimented with wacky designs, all signs point that gesture navigation is – at the very least – being considered for Android P.

According to Stephan Hall from 9to5Google (h/t ArsTechnica), it’s ‘100%’ gesture navigation. The recents button was removed, and the back button only appears temporarily – explaining the lopsided look. And as pointed out by Ars, Android P has a new sliding animation when navigating within an app, which would jive nicely with swiping gestures. That seems like it would make a disappearing back button redundant, but maybe Google just doesn’t want to confuse long-time Android users.

Google has since removed the evidence, cropping the image to only show off the feature it actually meant to show off. Since we don’t want whomever wrote uploaded the image to feel too guilty, that’s support for DNS over TLS, if that means anything to you.

 

Though a variety of Android manufacturers have implemented navigation gestures over the years, Google might be considering the move in stock Android in response to the iPhone X and ever-shrinking bezels. In theory, gesture-based navigation could  allow you to shrink the navigation bar and save some screen real estate, although that doesn’t appear to be the case in this particular image.

It’s worth reiterating this might not necessarily make it into the final version of Android P; just look at Dark Mode. Nor am I convinced it should replace the traditional navigation bar. But as someone who’s been fond of gesture navigation since the Palm Pre, I’d be happy to see it return as an optional configuration. With Google I/O coming up in a few weeks, it likely won’t be long until this mystery is resolved.
