    yes but turning on devloper option is little dangerous if you forgot your phone anywhere.

    I turned it on, but it doesn't work. Maybe I have to restart or root. But I'm too lazy😅.

    This won't work if you just toggle this setting in developer options. You have to manually set per app "enableOnBackInvokedCallback" to true in the manifest file.

    Only works in some apps everyone!! Settings, calculator and some select other apps.

    Only seems to work in system apps only while back button takes to home screen

    Didn't work on s23, says that needs another option enabled to work but it's not available.

    Some devices don't seem to respond properly to this toggle, so it may not work on every device. It all depends on the OEM. 🙂 Crossing my fingers that it works for you 🤞

    Pixel 6 pro. I enabled it but it made my system crash all the time so I had to disable it and now no more system UI crashes. For anyone who is using it and notices UI crashes

    That is one of the most useless features Google implemented on Android. And we devs have to code it just to use it in the app. Not worth it 😛

    Glad to see they are finally bringing some of the Developer Options into Android itself. Some of those Options have been in there for Years. I always change the Animation Scale whenever I get a New Phone I set it to the lowest so it makes your Phone feel faster.

    Meanwhile me who is running Android 11: confused unga bunga

    (I actually got the update to Android 13 but due to extreme bugs and performance issues I rolled back to Android 11)

  14. I'd rather have an option to disable the back gestures on the left side, so that they don't interfere with app side menus to be honest.

    I absolutely hate gestures. Still sticking with 3 button navigation…
