Google yesterday introduced the newest version of Android, Android P, at its Google I/O developer conference held in Mountain View, California. Android P includes a few enticing features like a new Dashboard for monitoring usage and an adaptive battery feature for improving battery life, but what was of interest to iPhone users was the new gesture system.

Android P adopts a new gesture-based system interface that’s reminiscent of the interface of the iPhone X, so we decided to download the Android P beta to check it out for ourselves.



  1. I think it's good that Android is adopting the ability to switch between more than one app. It's more like improving the software and features of the device. Android's only trying to simplify the use of their devices to their users.

  2. This is MacRumors. I'm interested in Mac- and iOS-related stuff. I've never used an Android phone. I don't know what an app drawer is and I don't want to know. I'd prefer you play to your audience, assuming MacRumors is still interested in being a Mac/Apple-related site.

  3. android has and always will be a scuffed version of ios. they will never hold the patents they need for the optimal experience because they were not the first to the market. the fact that android will never have a simple back function by swiping left on the screen is one of the many reasons why a lot of people will never use android.

  4. If google is copying Apple with the gestures then that is a sign letting the customers know that google is running out of ideas and their solution is to copy other companies that are successful.
