Google has finally planned to introduce what iPhone users were enjoying for years. According to Android Q documentation, Android Q to natively support the 3D Touch-like feature called “deep press.” Although they both mean pretty much the same, the name “deep press” makes more sense as compared to the 3D-Touch.
The feature will allow you to perform various actions such as bring up the context menu without having to tap here and there multiple times. Just tell your fingers to put some extra pressure and it’ll do the trick for you.
It’s early days and the feature is yet to make its way to the Android Q Build, therefore, we haven’t been able to see the feature in action. Assuming the feature works more or less the same as the iOS, there is one major concern and that is compatibility. It’s not clear whether the existing smartphones running Android Q will be able to cash in on the new feature or they will be left out.
It’s been four years(almost) since Apple launched 3D-Touch feature in iPhone 6s and with every new iPhone, the 3D-Touch got more feature-rich. That said, I think this year’s Google I/O will see Google talking extensively about the feature and you might see the company taking a dig at iPhone but for that to happen it has to deliver.
