Android Q will finally enable pull-down gesture for notification bar

Android Q will kill its default gesture navigation if you install a launcher like Nova Pixel Launcher set to pick up new notification pull-down gesture in Android Q Beta 5

Android Q is the latest major iteration of Android that first Google and then manufacturers will start releasing to eligible devices later this year.

Android Q brings a score of visual and functional improvements over Android Pie and out of these, the new iPhone-style navigation gestures arguably the most contentious.

The formal announcement of the new open beta testing program comes via a post by a Google employee to the Messages help community, together with a formal request that participants not "publicize or share the features you're testing until they're publicly available" - like anyone is going to adhere to that. It should also allow for a more visually pleasing design.

The new navigation joins the improved gesture navigation that will feature a customizable back sensitivity setting. There's really not much more to it than that, but given the popularity of the feature in third-party launchers, it's likely to be a welcome addition. Google also introduced a new feature in the third beta of Android Q. As reported by Android Police, the beta version included a Battery Saver feature which is similar to the Low Power Mode of iOS.

It seems that Android Q will bring pull-down anywhere to bring the notification bar and quick-action buttons. One issue Google highlights is navigation problems that users have been having when they have a custom launcher installed. But, besides the navigation drawer, Google is taking other elements like sliders or those which have swipe gestures (like the Archive or Snooze gesture in Google Messages or Gmail) into account. Beta 5 removes this, with the OS notifying you that it has updated the system navigation style if you switch to a third-party launcher.
