How to find 3 button navigation option in Nokia 4.2, am unable to find
That is correct. The setting was not available in Android 9 Pie. From Android 10 you can set it again.
Why individual models can do this is unclear.
Those devices which got the Android 9 pie update through OTA have3 button navigation but those which have Android 9 out of the box doesn't have it. Me also can't find the option of'swipe up on home button' on my dad's mi a3
So that tells why some users are not getting the gesture. I hope it will be standardized while Android 10 is available later in February/March but I'll keep my fingers crossed.
I am just waiting for Android 10 to arrive on mia3 and nokia 5.1 plus
I also don't have the option for swipe up on home button, Australian model of the phone.
Just bought a 4.2 and not only does it still not have 10 (surprising), but it doesn't have the 9 feature that was added in about May 2019 to use three buttons. :(
I think for now we'll have to install Nova Launcher
how do i turn on 3 button navigation on nokia 2.2?
I have the TA-1150 and have updated to Android 10 build number 00WW_2_290. Under settings, system, gestures, system navigation, there is the option to use gesture navigation or 2 button navigation.
However when searching across the whole phone, there is a system "app" called 3 Button Navigation Bar. This suggests to me that that in the phone firmware it is theoretically possible for there to be a 3 button navigation but it's been disabled or something.
Can we please get this option in a future update? If you need more details @HMDLaura @singhnsk
Figured out that one as well. Apparently it's under package com.android.internal.systemui.navbar.threebutton. Same build number as yours. Difference is that the TA-1157 of mine have the 3 button gesture enabled since Pie.
You may want to try your luck to enable the app from adb console. No such luck on me.
Anybody know what the deal is with the fact that 3 button navigation doesn't appear to be available on the 2.2. mine arrived today and an hour after unboxing it I was ready to box it back up and return it because the two button navigation is driving me up the wall and I can't seem to go back to good old 3 button bar. Been a huge fan of Nokia lumia and when the 3.1 came out bought one in December 2019 and loved it everyday till it died in February 2020, so bought this 2.2 and am now contemplating never buying another Nokia and even moving to IOS because of this issue.
I have Nokia 8.1 & 7.1 with 3 buttons in the family.
I had to buy Nokia 4.2 to send my partner's 7.1 to service for relais , I configured Nokia 4.2 which has 2 buttons, my partner usa become familiar with using it, and I also put the 2 buttons on the Nokia 8.1 ...
The newest smartphones are all 2 buttons, and in my opinion if we get used it a few days, it is much more convenient and quick to use as well respect 3 buttons
This is for those Nokia4.2 which even after getting Android 10, didn't receive 3-button navigation:

Okay, so today some weird thing happened with my phone.

When i go to my system settings its shows me 3-button navigation but when i try to open it, it shows me this
Yeahhh it shows me only 2 kinds of navigation....xD 3-button not being an option...
This happened when i installed Google's pixel launcher from apkmirror.
Make sure ur already upgraded to Android 10 and using gesture navigation.
Install pixel launcher and make it default home! Yess it'll stop but it'll change ur navigation from gesture to 3-button. Then uninstall the app. That's it.
It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!
