New Android Pie beta adds quick toggle for full-screen navigation gestures

It’s not just major features that Samsung is still adding to the Android Pie beta for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9. Minor additions and changes are being made as well, and the latest Galaxy S9 beta (software version XXU2ZRLF) brings a new quick toggle for the status bar that lets you switch between the software navigation buttons and the new full-screen navigation gestures that Pie introduces to Galaxy devices.

Quicker switching between navigation keys and gestures

The navigation gestures in Android Pie are a great alternative for those who dislike the software navigation keys taking up part of the screen. They’re easy to get used to as well, but until now, Samsung required users to take a trip into the phone’s display settings in order to switch back to standard navigation keys. The new quick toggle will make things much faster when you want to switch between navigation keys and full-screen gestures.

If you’re running the Android Pie beta on the Galaxy S9, you can find the navigation bar toggle on the second page of the quick toggles panel in the status bar. And don’t forget to check out more of what Android Pie and Samsung’s new One UI interface will bring to Galaxy smartphones.

I don’t wanna small blob on the bottom of display when full screen gestures mode. It can be disable or transparent like Goodlock 2018 one hand operation+. Can somebody report it via beta?

You can always change your CSC to beta region.I
I have S9+ and we have in Poland beta, but slots are full. And I don’t want to use beta software on my daily driver.

Root is bad because It enable Knox. With tripped Knox some services don’t work.
I still remember old times of the Galaxy S2. No Knox. No problem with root and then return to stock. There was only flash counter. But it could be erased.
You are right. Things are tougher now.
