Samsung launched One UI 2018 to replace the now infamous TouchWiz. Since then, things have looked pretty bright for Galaxy users. Now, the long-awaited arrival of Android 10 in the One UI 2.0 era, including a new set of gesture-based controls, is picking.
Since you are probably upgrading from One UI 1.0 (Android 9 Pie), you probably used the usual three-button navigation that we all know from the past. Or maybe you tried the clumsy gestures on the entire screen that came with the first One UI to no avail? Well, the Android 10 gestures are much more like the iPhone devices, and they combine full-screen navigation across all Android devices.
Settings> Display> Navigation bar> Full Screen Gestures
To activate the new Android 10 gestures on A UI 2.0, you must enter the system settings to the location above. When you click on the "Full Screen Gestures" option, you immediately see the three navigation buttons disappear and more screen will be revealed.
For a more immersive experience, you can disable option "Gesture tips" to hide the white navigation bar at the bottom. You can also enable the "Show Keyboard to Hide Keyboard" option so you can switch keyboards at any time when using these new gestures – the keyboard icon appears at the bottom right of the screen. Otherwise, it will only appear in the message tray when you swipe down.
By pressing the "More" button options "gives you some additional settings that you can adjust to your personal taste.
You can choose from the old "Swipe from bottom" option that came from the first UI, but the Android 10 gestures are the ones marked "Pull from pages and bottom" which should be enabled by default. For the new gesture navigation, you can swipe up from the bottom to jump back to the home screen. Swipe up and hold down to get your latest apps and swipe in from the left or right edge of the screen to bring up the back arrow.
The "Back gesture sensitivity" setting allows you to adjust how easy it is to drag the screen to activate the back arrow. If you have a phone case that goes quite tightly around the edges of the screen, you may want to increase the sensitivity to make it easier to swipe the edges. Play around with the sensitivity levels to find your perfect fit.
If you enable the "Allow Backward Gesture on the Keyboard" option, you can use the back arrow while you have your favorite on-screen keyboard. But note that it is off by default to avoid triggering rear gestures when using swipe typing.
Now you can enjoy your beautiful Samsung screen even more with these new full screen Android 10 gestures! To see how they all work, check out our full tutorial below, complete with demo GIFs.
