Android 11 Supports Deep Presses to Expand Notifications

Android 11 to Integrate Password Autofill with Keyboards
Right after Google launched Android 11 for Pixel telephones, the software program big launched Android 11’s supply code to the Android Open Source Project(AOSP) web site. Going by way of the supply code, XDA’s Editor-in-Chief Mishaal Rahman has noticed the presence of ‘Deep Press’ for notifications.

In case you didn’t know already, Google added ‘Deep Press’ performance with the second Pixel characteristic drop earlier in March. The characteristic makes use of software program to evaluate the person’s agency presses. It permits you to open the context menu in Pixel Launcher, Google Photos, and Google Drive. Google is now increasing the scope of this characteristic to notifications.

With this variation, bundled notifications develop while you deep/agency press them. If you press it lengthy sufficient, it’ll take you to the app notification controls. Here, you’ll be able to mute sure channels or set the precedence of the incoming notification.

According to Android Police, the characteristic is working as supposed on Pixel 4 and Pixel 4a. Some customers on Twitter report the presence of the characteristic in Pixel 3a XL working Android 11 as effectively. The characteristic could come to different telephones with Android 11 as effectively.

While it’s good that Google is offering extra choices, I’m not fairly certain why the corporate is making a redundant characteristic addition. Expanding bundled notifications is at present fairly easy and requires only a easy swipe down gesture.

In my opinion, this complete long-press develop characteristic could also be a hit and miss except the ML algorithm working behind the scenes will get actually good at it with superior precision. I hope the corporate doesn’t discontinue the power to swipe all the way down to develop notifications in favor of this fancy deep press implementation in future iterations of Android.
