Android 11 - Can't access multi task from home screen 0 Recommended Answers 24 Replies 35 Upvotes

Just updated to the new Android 11. Seems like they have removed the ability to go to multi tasking (switch apps) from the home screen. Can anyone confirm this?

I used to be able to swipe up from the home button and see what apps were open but now I need to open up an app then swipe up.

I am using KLWP and Nova Launcher but I don't know if that would affect this.

Hi Nicholas,
 
The swipe up and hold gesture to get to recent apps screen works on the home screen as well. Nova Launcher might affect this gesture (a lot of people are having problems with Nova Launcher after upgrading to Android 11), so please try using this gesture with Pixel Launcher once.

Had this same issue with Nova Launcher after upgrade to Android 11.
* settings (pixel, not nova)
* default applications
* Home
* select Pixel Home
* touch home button
* swipe up
* back to settings (already open)
* switch to Nova Launcher
* :)

Stock android 11 on a Pixel 3a and it does *not* work from the home screen, only in apps. I contacted support and they denied this and said it works.

It still works but you have to swipe up from the bottom and hold for 1-2 seconds. It's way longer than it used to be.

Hmm so are we supposed to be okay with this 1~2 sec delay and live with it?

Same. Using default Pixel Launcher and can't launch from home screen takes 2+ sec each time to switch between apps. Seriously shit regression in UX

Hi all, if you want to revert navigation on the Pixel launcher to previous settings please see below.

Open your settings and search navigation, then system navigation should be an option. You'll then see the below screen.

Yes when on home screen, I liked the swipe up and hold from the middle of the screen to activate multitask. It made one handed use a breeze.. so much more cumbersome now, similar to iPhone
