Are multi-finger gestures/swipes still a thing?

I apologize in advance if this question is either frequently asked or the answer is blatantly obvious but I really haven’t had much luck getting a straight answer by looking this up. ​ I used to have a Galaxy S6 that I had multi-finger gestures on. For example, one of the most useful shortcuts I had set was for my phone to lock and go to sleep when I spread three fingers out on the screen and it would do this regardless of what app was active on the screen. ​ I currently have a Pixel 2XL which I’ve been quite happy with for the past year or so but recently, I’ve been missing that functionality of just being able to swipe my phone to sleep. If I’m honest, it’s because I check my phone from time to time at work and I don’t like my co-workers being able to see that my phone is unlocked or is open to any apps/texts. Ideally, I would be able to just lock my phone by swiping it with three fingers as trying to press/fumble for the power button feels much less conspicuous. ​ I don’t remember what launcher I used to use to enable multi-finger gestures and upon looking up what apps add this functionality, most seem to just be weird iPhone X UI copies or seem incredibly clunky. Some really promising options I’ve found online have also been taken off the Play Store so I’m stuck at a bit of a dead end here. ​ I know this is a VERY low-stakes problem but nonetheless, I would really appreciate it if anyone could point me in the right direction here. submitted by /u/Imlakaflocka [link] [comments]
