The gesture navigation on electronic devices, especially smartphones, has raised a lot of excitement from users all over the world. Here’s a brighter future for the technology: Google’s working on a new version of Chrome OS that will enable various touchscreen gestures on devices running this operating system. This will come as an important part of the upcoming Chrome OS 80, which is scheduled to debut on Feb 11, 2020.
In particular, the new Chrome OS package will house a total of four gestures. First, users can swipe from left to right to get back to previous screens. Also, they can make a short upward swipe to have the app menu, while a long upward swipe will be used to clear up all current app windows as well as get the display back to the home screen. On the other hand, users can see an overview screen with all current windows by an upward swipe from the bottom to the middle of the screen.
As reported by Android Police, users will have to open the system settings and switch on the modular shelf flag if they want to enable gesture navigation.
Prior to these updates, Google once introduced a gestural control system for the Pixel 4 lineup just a few months ago. According to the company, these phones will sport an embedded radar chip to read hand gestures, and then automatically respond to users without any touch.
The gesture navigation will lend itself to be compatible with most apps. For those who are using Chrome book, it’s a good time to try out these gestures: Head to Settings menu > Click on “About Chrome OS” > Choose “Change” then select “Beta” to have some very first experiences.
