Same here. I switched to a Nexus when they took my Note 7 away (I'm still salty about that; it was literally the perfect phone) and I enjoyed the Nexus, but decided that I couldn't live without the gestures I was accustomed to using. I ended up going back to the Note line instead of moving to the Pixel. Swiping from the messages app was the one I used most often.
I'm also not a fan of the very Apple looking design of this release, especially the horizontal tile for the open apps rather than the vertical. I primarily use my phone one handed, so I like things to be as compact as possible.
I don't know why samsung always discontinues the great features and adds ***** that nobody cares about! I hate that they removed the ability to take videos with the front and rear camera simultaneously!
No, that doesn't help because it's not the function everyone is referring to! And that involves 3 steps. Why was the swipe right to call function removed from the messages app?
I've got the same issue when my s8 updated to the latest version of Android and it is the one thing I miss most. I'm actually considering rolling back to the previous version of Android and blocking the update just to get it back.
If Samsung is watching, please bring this function back. It was perfect just how it was.
Yes I agree.
How can we get both vertical apps and swipe to call back in messages?????
Why would they take out good features.
Do these ***** engineers ever ask users what they like?
What is wrong with these people.
Hi! Open msg app and go to setting. Turn the swipe to call or msg function back on and it starts working. I think with update this fuction get turned off, but u can change it. Enjoy!
