Android 8.1: Navigation key of fingerprint disappeared since May patch


On the security patch May 1, 2018 of Android 8.1.0 the "Navigation key of fingerprint"

settings disappeared. It was extremely useful to go back by tapping the fingerprint reader, acces the launcher by keeping it pressed and access recent apps by swiping on it.

Will this feature come back in a future patch? Was this deletion a mistake?

Is there any way that I could enable this feature with the latest security patch made?

Here you can see on the previous security patch the setting:
