They heard you, Samsung has brought back the ability to hide your Navigation Bar and Swipe Gestures.

 
You will have to download Goodlock and specially NavStar once installed toggled on NavStar, Enable extra gesture settings.
 
Go to settings. Display, navigation, show more, have fun again. 
 
Ps. If you already have both apps and you are not seeing those options, Open Goodlick again scroll to NavStar, tap on the more, go to store, there will be an update waiting. For some reason it isn't showing up in updates

Same here! I can't stand this new side swift option, the only version of the icon-free never bar! Where did all the settings go!? I can't even reach the left edge with my thumb to swipe! Swiping up from the bottom right and left was so much more manageable, now I have to have the stupid icons or else I can't navigate, and can't stand the bottom center swip up and hold function that's so slow!

I think this is what you are all talking about and hopefully, this is the fix you're looking for. I don't have my S24 yet, so I'm not positive this solution works. Good luck!

Goodlock, NavStar.
I haven't gotten the NavStar update yet, only got my phone today.
That will fix it, I want to hide the Nav bar, that's been fixed too!

You need gesture hints to be able to use circle to search

No you don't, just long press on bottom of the screen. I just removed my Navigation bar hint. It works just fine.

Good lock, NavStar, download, turn on, enable extra gesture settings.

Go to settings, display, navigation, more settings.1706595476513.jpg1706595613650.jpg

Reaching all the way to the left edge and right edge is difficult, when we used to set the bottom right and bottom left swip_up setting to get the Back and recent buttons to work. Where'd the setting go? I can't stand having the buttons show the icons, and much prefer the swipe, but not the edge swipe function. Just came from s22 ultra to s24 ultra

Samsung removed it to accommodate Google Circle Search.

But you can get the swipe from bottom gestures back by downloading the Good Lock (NavStar) app from the Samsung Store.
