This is a feature found on Android 11 beta and current iOS 14.

Essentially tap the back of your phone 2 or 3 times to run an action eg take a screenshot, turn on flashlight etc.

It uses the phone's existing sensors such as the accelerometer to determine when someone taps the back of the phone 2 or 3 times!

There's apps in the play store already, was actually on the pixel devices during the 11 beta, got canned though. Think Apple borrowed that idea for their version of it.
