I'm constantly taken back to the previous page when I try to swipe through carousel photos/content. It's a pain. Put the back gesture back on the lower left-hand part of the screen and open app drawer on the lower right. I do not like having to swipe and hold the bottom middle to get to the app drawer, it's not as fluid. It should go back to home only being in the lower middle, "back" in the lower left, and app drawer in the lower left. I don't want to sacrifice screen real estate for the static buttons on the bottom but these new gestures are awful and it looks like you're trying to apple. PLEASE FIX!!

THANK YOU! Not sure why they don't give the option in native settings. Now it's going to take me a while to get used to going back 🤣

Those settings have been removed for sometime now people are saying Google forced the change and this is the work around that Samsung came up with to still provide the 3 gestures 

Can you please like and click the 3 dot menu in the comment and Mark the post as solved

Same issue and I completely dislike having to install a 3rd-party (Yeah! 3rd-party, don't try and give me the "Samsung helped" story) to bring back a functionality that shouldn't have been removed in the first place.

I'm sure that if a sketchy app can do it, Samsung would have no issues keeping the functionality despite alleged Google coercion!!

You are aware navStar is not 3rd party, right? Is a Samsung made and designed app.
