Google will force OEMs to hide their own gesture navigation systems in Android
Although Google hopes that new gesture navigation will become a common standard for Android 10 devices, OEMs are not willing to hide their own gesture navigation systems in Android, and will not even give this native option in the setup wizard. A copy of the new version of the Google Mobile Services (GMS) agreement that OEMs provided by 9to5Google, the company lists some interesting information that Android device manufacturers must follow, including the discussion of gesture navigation.
At this year’s Developer Conference (I/O 2019), Google confirmed that device makers can continue to build their own custom systems, but will also be forced to incorporate Android 10 new gestures and the traditional three-button setup.
In other words, to enable Google Mobile Services (GMS) on Android 10 custom-based devices, you must have a classic three-button out-of-box or Android 10 new navigation gesture.
