Gesture navigation and third party launchers

I actually updated to android 10 solely because of the gesture navigation, but to my dissatisfaction Nokia only made a build that supports only the native launcher, meaning you cannot use gesture navigation with any third party launcher, this is quite unfortunate as I am not a fan of the native launcher.

Please HMD should add support for other third party launchers with the gesture navigation in their next update, and also solve the camera issue it's frustrating.

    Same here. It was actually an issue from Google's side. However, Google fixed it on the Google Pixel using a software update. Now, we'll have to see if that privilege is also passed onto Nokia phones and enabled via a software update. Until then, it is either a no to custom launchers or to gesture based navigation.

    Have been using navigation gestures by xda developers. Need to use adb to grant permission. And the premium features are worth the purchase. This app has enabled me to use the whole screen cos it has helped me to hide my navigation bar completely with nifty gestures enabled. U can actually increase the length of the pill to make it full width of the screen and then divide the pill into three sections jus like normal 3 button navigation but gesture enabled and then you can customise the gestures. Trust me once you use this you won't go back. Every Android phone I have used the first thing I do is to download and enable this. And this allows you to have left and right pills as well!! Give it a try!! You can get the app in the playstore.
