Many have seen in some of Google’s choices of recent times a sort of attempt to bring Android to iOS or, at least, to try to make the differences between these two operating systems smaller and with Android Q this approach should continue.
We refer to a feature of the next version of the Mountain View giant operating system that was identified by the staff of 9to5Google and which should be called ” deep press “.
It should be a solution designed to allow the user to interact in a new way with the device: following a stronger pressure than usual, in fact, the operating system should respond with a specific action.

Well, if this feature sounds familiar to you, it’s basically because it reproduces the Force Touch, also known as 3D Touch, a system used by Apple for several years now.
Probably “deep press” will make its debut with Google Pixel 4 but it is likely that many manufacturers decide to exploit this new feature of Android Q with their next smartphone. We’ll see.
Android should not be a clone of iPhone! Enough stealing gimmicks which users don’t want. Personally, I don’t want something different to happen just because I clicked too hard on the screen and the OS just couldn’t accept this shame.
The fact is this kind of functionality was available via various launchers long before Apple introduced 3D Touch. I remember using it on my Xperia Z1 in 2012. It’s nice to see Google making it a native feature though.
