XDA’s Navigation Gestures brings the iPhone X style gesture controls to Android devices . Navigation gestures are currently causing a sensation. Each of them has their own: Apple, OnePlus, Xiaomi, Huawei, and now Google on Android P. Everyone does it differently, too. In XDA they offer their own gestural navigation developed internally by them.
The application brings customizable gesture control to any Android device for those users who are looking to enter gesture navigation or are looking for an alternative to existing options. However, unlike other similar applications in the Play Store, your application can do something that no other application can do: completely hide the navigation bar of the software, providing a true full screen experience, which is especially good in phones with high screens.
A warning if you try the application and do not like it do not uninstall it directly. You must first deactivate the navigation movements and re-activate the value navigation bar. Unfortunately, if you do not follow these steps, you may not be able to navigate your phone.

In the Play Store you can download Navigation Gestures which is an app that also does not require root .
