What do you think of Android P's new gesture controls?

Google has just demonstrated Android P and a new beta has hit Pixel phones worldwide, showing us some of the newest features we are going to get to enjoy with the new Android build later this year. One of said new features is a new home button and recent apps gesture. Well, it's actually a home bar now, not a button, and you access the app carousel by swiping up or sideways on it.



Yeah, that does sound a bit iPhone-ish. The good news is that there is a toggle in settings, which allows you to choose between the classic navbar that features a recents button and this new gesture nub. We assume a ton of people out there are hoping that Google would keep the classic option in the final version.

That said, how do you feel about the new gesture-based interface?
