The gesture controls for Android that Google included with Android 9 Pie have been roundly criticized by some. Put a little too much umph in your swipe up to see the recent apps you've opened, and you can find yourself opening the app drawer instead. Some gesture purists have looked down on Google's inclusion of a back button (which only appears when there is a page to move back to) and others complain that the animation while using the gesture controls is not as smooth as it should be.

XDA was able to access the Developer Options menu on the Pixel Launcher using a Pixel 2 XL running the Android Q beta. Opening the menu revealed a number of gesture based options that when enabled, add new capabilities for those using gesture navigation on their Android Q powered Pixel handset. These changes include:

More seamless transition animation when swiping right on the "pill" when changing tasks.
You can return to the previous task by swiping left on the navigation bar.
Similar to gestures on ceertain iPhone models, swiping up on the "pill" will take you home (new animation is included with this gesture).
You can view your Recent Apps by swiping up on the "pill" and holding.
While in the launcher, swiping up on the navigation bar will show the app drawer only.
The notification panel will appear if you swipe down anywhere on the screen.
If all of these changes are implemented in Android Q, using gestures on the upcoming build of Google's open source operating system will be very similar to how gestures work on the iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. Of course, we should know more during Google I/O. The annual developer conference will take place between Tuesday, May 7th and Thursday, May 9th.
