Google's 3D Touch update won't be ready for Android N
posted by Michael H. / May 12, 2016, 8:03 PM
The general expectation has been that Google would be updating pressure sensitivity support and making it more like 3D Touch in the next version of Android. Documentation for the on the second Android N preview that Google released even included mention of the feature. But, now the word is that it won't be ready in time for the official launch of Android N, expected later this year. Google has not officially commented on the matter.
Maybe we'll hear a bit more about the plans at Google I/O next week, but even that is unclear right now. There is expected to be a new version of the Android N preview released at Google I/O, so even if Google doesn't specifically comment, we're sure the code monkeys out there will find clues in the software itself.

As though every user wants it. It's just a crappy feature according to me.

why it's implemented correctly, it could actually save a lot of "taps", more pressure could be used something like the right click button for windows, making the user interaction with apps more user friendly.

Never heard of any one got sued because of the number of buttons on the mouse. Apple refusal is due to Steve Job pride. Unofficially a lot of software had the second mouse button support on Macintosh you just need to plug in a non-Apple mouse.

The main reason is because Steve Jobs accused Bill Gates of stealing his idea (which we clearly stole from Xerox). But Bill added the second mouse button (and third) to Windows and Jobs couldn't because then he would look like the copy.

When Apple popularizes something or makes it standard, then the other party follows suit.

I don't want that useless crap on my smartphone, keep that useless gimmick on your overrated poor excuse for an app launcher called an iPhone!
