Nexus 5X now supports Notification access by swiping down on the Fingerprint Scanner

Many Nexus 6P & 5X users were unhappy by that their Nexus phones don’t support Swipe down gesture on the android nougat even though they use same fingerprint scanner as the Google Pixel &Pixel XL.

After some complain google said that they are “evaluating” bringing fingerprint scanner gesture on Nexus 5X & 6P. Well, now your wait is over or at least for the Nexus 5X users.

A Reddit user u/spannerphantom today posted that after updating to 7.1.2 beta on his Nexus 5X there is a new option in moves. (see Image below)



There might be some additional features also included in this 7.1.2 update because update file is 1.2GB.

Although there is no news about the swiping down gesture working on the Nexus 6P but if it’s working on the nexus 5X then it should be arriving on the Nexus 6P too or we sure hope so.
