With android 10 we now have the facility to interact with the UI more based out of gestures. But this still needs to be integrated more into everywhere.
While in the recent apps screen, we nw have 2 portions, one where the last open apps are displayed and the other where we have some app suggestions at the bottom. What we do not have here is a "DRAG AND DROP" amongst these 2 sections which allows us to open apps in split screen just by dragging one to the top half and another one to the bottom half.
This way taps are reduced and gestures are more intensified, thus making interactions smoother and likeable. Hope this makes it to the final version release during January 2020. 😊
