Google is trying to add IPhone X style navigation to Android P



Google News!

Android P is just about to launch and we are expecting to hear next operating system update at the Google I/O developer conference in May. For the time we are having some leaks from Google itself. I know its funny Google only leaks all their data sometimes…Google!

Recently a screenshot was posted to the Android Developers blog (and since adjusted to hide part of the user interface), the navigation bar has a  whole new look, with a back button, a wider button, and no Overview (multitasking) button which is a very good news for all d pixel lovers.



Ars Technica spotted the image before it got deleted and pointed out the similarities between this and what Apple has done with the iPhone X. It’s almost the same. Apple’s phone has no Home button, which means users have to rely on swipes and gestures to get around. Thinking that will Android have gestures and swipes option? The biggest mystery.

The Google Pixel phone launched already have many gestures that aren’t supported in stock Android as a whole – like swiping up to get to the app drawer – and it would look very nice. With more and more Android phones ditching physical buttons, it makes sense to follow Apple’s lead. Even pixel is trying to follow apple lead.

Android P is still very much in development, and this change doesn’t appear in the early preview version that’s been distributed to developers. It’s possible that this is only a temporary test that won’t make it into the final version of the OS.

Something else we’re not sure about is the full Android P name, but Google might have given us a hint by showing off some spring-themed pictures on its Instagram Stories yesterday, as grabbed by Android Police. Looks like a lot of popsicles there… a sweet treat starting with P. Popsicle is trademarked, but that hasn’t stopped Google before.
