Android is the operating system most used in the world, and all indications are that it will continue to remain the leader in the market for a long time, however, there is an old saying that says “renew or die”, and Google knows that if Android is not renewed could die, which is why they have made a major announcement about the future of their operating system.
Gestures are the future of Android
With Android 9.0 Distance came the gestures to Android, this navigation was initiated with the phones from Palm and Apple decided to include in iOS 11 with the release of the iPhone X.
A lot of people didn’t like this change, and Google allowed in the Pixel and Pixel 2 to change the navigation gesture by the classic navigation buttons, but in the Pixel 3 things are different, then only it is possible to use the gesture navigation.
Hi! Pixel 3 you introduce a new pattern that will represent navigation on all Android phones going forward. While change & adapting to new patterns is hard, we believe it’s a better navigation pattern & makes app switching faster experience.

This has been confirmed by Google, which also makes it clear that the future of Android is the navigation via gestures, so do not expect more navigation buttons, such as those seen in the past versions of Android.
Android 5.0 Lollipop to Android 9.0 Foot
Android Lollipop was an aesthetic revolution in Android, there was born the classic design of the navigation buttons that we know today thanks to Material Design, and has been on Android 9.0 Foot where it reaches this evolution in design, not only with Material Design 2.0, which is known as Theming Design, but the buttons disappear to give way to gestures.
Android Q will be the first operating system from Google, which do not include navigation buttons, so the only thing we can do is accept the gestures and get used to them, because despite the fact that at the beginning it is strange, this navigation, it will take a few minutes to get used to using them.
