The first beta of Android Q is already here and although it brings many improvements, it also introduces some changes that users are not liking. In Android 9 Pie, you can swipe a notification to the left or right quickly to remove it, or do it slowly to show other options.
However, in Android Q the only way to get rid of a notification is by sliding it to the right since when you slide it to the left a button appears that allows users to interrupt a notification or postpone it.
Now, it seems that this change is not going to stay that way. According to a message from Google Issue Tracker, a future version of Android Q will include a new setting that will allow users to choose the direction in which they wish to swipe to reject a notification.
This news has been published using an email address from Google, which means that it is most likely to be someone well informed.
What we do not know is what he refers to with “future versions of Android” since he could be talking about a next beta or a future major version. However, taking into account the criticism it has received, we can expect it to be incorporated in a future beta of Android Q.
