Android Q Will Be Adding Support For 3d Touch-like Gesture

Android Q Will Be Adding Support For 3D Touch-Like Gesture

When Apple first launched 3D Touch, it was rumored that Android handset makers could be looking to follow suit with 3D Touch like features of their own. However, it seems that 3D Touch never quite took off the way Apple had hoped and for the most part, pressure-sensitive displays are a rare find on Android handsets, if at all.

Now it seems that according to a report from 9to5Google, it looks like with Android Q, Google could be looking to introduce a similar gesture to the Android operating system. Of course, Google can’t magically create pressure-sensitive displays on Android handsets, but rather this will be support for “deep presses”.

2019 Acura Rdx Infotainment First Impressions | A First Step Into The Touch Pad World

2019 Acura RDX infotainment first impressions | A first step into the touch pad world

One of the greatest design challenges in the modern automotive industry is an infotainment system that provides loads of capabilities, but is also easy-to-use and not overly distracting. Touch screens have been leading the way as the favored option, but Acura is trying a new design that relies on a touch pad with some unique tweaks to separate it from similar systems, such as those seen in competing Lexus models. And we got to try it out in the first production application, the 2019 Acura RDX compact crossover.

The key feature of the touch pad is its one-to-one position functionality. What that means is that, if you have a grid of function buttons on the screen, tapping on, say, the upper left corner of the pad will highlight the button in the same area on the screen. And if you were to take your finger off the pad and tap in the opposite corner, that section of the screen would immediately be highlighted. You don't have to slide your finger across the pad to reach selections if you don't want to, and you don't have to slide back from the last function you highlighted. It basically does away with the need to move a cursor around like you would on a laptop with its mouse pad.
