New navigation system
Way back in 2011, with Google’s iconic Honeycomb OS they debuted the three button navigation system that’s been the standard ever since. The three button system for the Back, Home and Recents is being abandoned for a much more cleaner and subtle design improvement.
How the buyers receive it is up to question.
It’s a gesture-based system.The new navigation system incorporates a single home button. You may swipe the home button up to see predicted apps and up again to see all apps. Sliding to the side for each app lets you open those up.
Here’s how it works in detail:
- You can tap on the home to go the obvious place- Home
- Once you swipe up you can see the recent apps you used
- Swiping up twice takes you to the app drawer
- The back button has been reduced to selective appearance and you can see it only when need arises in apps and menus.
Since it’s the beta version and only a select number of users are using the features all this can appear confusing and will need some time getting used to. However, with all the feedback they’re garnering we will have a better version very soon.
If you don’t like gestures Developer Preview 2 and 3 still allow three button usage but it will be gestures going forward for all iterations.
Device manufacturers like HTC and Samsung with their new pressure sensitive home button phones too are making a leap in the same direction.
The all new Android Dashboard
The all-new android dashboard uses machine learning and probably predictive analytics to understand habits and promotes engagement. It uncovers detailed usage statistics for example the number of times you unlocked the phone, number of notifications, number of apsp you used and app engagement time helping you get a bird’s eye view of your engagement with the phone.
The feature wasn’t seen in Developer Preview 2 or 3 (but was announced) and future versions of Android P will have the dashboard and will offer detailed views on how you use the phone.
