May I know why this is removed from the Fold5 and Flip5? I used this feature every single day and now it's gone. It's detrimental to keep this feature so can it be added back with a software update??

So it appears that there were a good number of complaints about the feature, I'm guessing unwanted Notification panel activation.  From the OEM perspective it must have tripped the threshold and they did away with it.  Had they left it with the rationale that it can be toggled off, they would have still received the same number of complaints and would have had to tell the user to turn it off. 

If it were me, I would have done the same thing or hidden it in Developer options where most people wouldn't find it.

Hello,

On the Z Flip5, I no longer see the finger sensor gesture shortcut options (Settings > Advanced features > Motion and gesture > finger sensor gesture). 

Please bring back the ability to access the notification menu by using the finger sensor gesture. This was a HUGE benefit that I used countless times per day.

I really miss the ability to swipe down on the fingerprint sensor to bring down the notification panel. It was amazing on the Z Flip 3 & 4. Very handy from us folk with smaller hands. I don't know why Samsung would remove it from the Z Flip 5. Can we please bring it back.

I'm still waiting for my upgrade but did they remove the option from the gestures menu? I'm on a Fold4 and it's still there for me

I also second the motion to re-implement this feature, a feature that both my SO and I used all the time with our Fold3 and Flip4. A pretty big blow to the usability of devices with displays this excessively long (cover screen of the Fold5, main screen of the Flip5).
