Android Q Will Kill Back Back Button?

By  | 

Despite all the changes that Google has been making to their Android OS, the back button has always remained a staple part of the system but new reports are now suggesting that the Android Q might actually come without a back button.

XDA Developers have been looking though the leak and it looks like they might have come across some code that suggest that the back button will be gone. Instead, users will have to swipe to go back to the previous page.

Google have been trying to introduce that with their Android 9 Pie but it might still take some time before people actually get use to the whole swiping to go back gestures as most of us are used to having a button for that action.

Of course, the features might not even make it to the end product but we should be expecting to see gestures play a bigger role in the future.
