Android Like Gesture Navigation & Touch Friendly Tab Strip Coming to Chromebook Tablet Mode. With Chrome 81, Google is introducing Android 10-like gesture navigation for the Chrome OS tablet mode. It’s also introducing other tweaks to optimize the touch experience, starting on the Lenovo Chromebook Duet.

Available for Chromebook tablets and the more common 2-in-1 convertibles, navigation starts with a thin line on the shelf. Swiping up from the bottom of the screen when in an app will take you home. A longer swipe takes you to the Overview screen that shows all open windows.

Speaking of the shelf, it’s been redesigned — given the new gesture pill placement — in tablet mode so that a small swipe will bring up a tray of your pinned and open apps. In laptop mode, the shelf is now more compact to increase browsing real estate.

Android’s back gesture is also available, but only on the left edge. It can be used to go back when browsing, as well as return you to the app grid.
