Results: Android P's gesture interface — potential hit with the fans?
Google's Android P is going to have a new gesture-based interface, as demonstrated at Google I/O and also visible in the beta build, currently available to the public. Said interface gets rid of the Recents button and turns the Home one into a nub — scroll up for task-switching, scroll sideways to swap between apps. Yeah, those gestures and setup sound a little bit iPhone-ish.

So, we wondered if the new system would attract the anger of fans, and we asked. But it looks like many are willing to give the new controls a chance, and some even loved it at first look. Only about 18% voted that they will just switch back to the classic navbar and stay away from all that swiping ordeal.

Well, here's hoping that Google leaves the option in!

How do you feel about the new gesture-based interface in Android P?

Naw! I am sticking to classic mode like my life depends on it!
I'll give it a chance
Love it!
