On the other hand, the predictive back gesture will be available officially starting with the Android 14 operating system, as confirmed by tech giant Google. The company also says that predictive back gestures can be used inside apps and show a preview of the previous home screen.
Google talked about “falsing” at the official Developer Summit event of 2022. Falling is when a user accidentally closes an app using the back gesture, affecting app usage metrics. The company also showed a user’s comment, “I can’t see that I’m on the last screen before the home screen.”
All of these problems can be fixed with a predictive back gesture. When you use the back gestures to close an app quickly, the home screen looks at what you were doing. The developer settings are all you need to turn on the feature, and a few apps have already started testing it. it will have predictive back turned on by default, and the next OS is expected to give users “a similar experience when they swipe within the app” by using pre-made or custom animations to show where going back will take them.
With Android 14, the back gesture feature expected to be added will be available. Official plans say that the developer preview for Android 14 will start in the middle of 2023. The operating system’s official release will happen in the fourth quarter of 2023. Android 14 is expected to make some big changes to the operating system and fix more privacy and security issues.
