In this step-by-step guide, we will show you how to customize back tap gestures on your Google Pixel smartphone.
Step 1: Open the Settings application on your new Google Pixel smartphone.
Step 2: After that, go to the “System” option and select “Gestures.”
Step 3: When you are on the Gestures settings page, click on the “Quick Tap” option.
Step 4: Once you are in there, toggle the switch ON for the “Use Quick Tap” option.
Step 5: Now, select the custom action of your choice from the list.
That’s it. Now whenever you tap on the phone’s back panel, the action that you selected in step 5 will be triggered. In the Quick Tap settings, there’s also an option to require stronger taps, which can be quite useful to stop accidental triggers.
Apple had introduced a feature called Back Tap on iOS 14 which lets the user activate certain functions just by tapping the back of your iPhone. Now a similar functionality has been made available for Android users as well.
