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

Does anyone know how I can get my swipe gestures on my S24+, like the previous ones? [from the bottom] The buttons take up space.

People responding to this issue need to make it clear to download good lock and navstar fro the Samsung store. I initially downloaded a good lock app from Google. Play store and couldn't find anyrhing about navstar.

You can go the Goodlock route but the gestures should be available in your general settings

I'm currently using the navbar with slide gestures however this messes up the hold home button for circle to search. Whenever I try to circle to search in Instagram it either thinks im trying to write a comment or enables google assistant which is very annoying. I have to try many times before the circle to search is activated. I also don't like the buttons feature ive been using swipe navbar for many years. 

What I think would be the best navbar is

- swipe gesture for recent apps on the left 

- swipe gesture for return on the right

- home button is in the middle at all times 

 

would that be possible at all? and if someone could code an app for it i'd def buy it from the play store

Galaxy store>install goodlock>open goodlock>install navstar module>open navstar> tap "enable extra gesture settings" which will restore the old navigation gestures in the settings menu. Once you've done this, settings>display>navigation bar>swipe gestures>more options

Goodlock is an official first party samsung customization app, so you aren't using some unknown 3rd party. It's a lot of steps, but Google has completely removed alternate gesture options from Android and Samsung is the only oem that offers an alternative even if it has a bunch of steps.

I just want to voice my dissapoint on the removal of the Samsung OneUI navigation bars removal in 6.1 with my S24 Ultra. The Android single bar sucks with having to swipe from the side for the back button. Apps and the keyboard always get in the way and depending on what app your on its really annoying. Holding the middle button up instead of a quick swipe up for the active apps isn't as smooth either, although less annoying then the swiping from the left or right side to go back. Why get rid of something that worked so well and was a unique feature of Samsung to set it apart from other Android phones??

Please bring it back with the next OneUI update!!!

I don't have an S24, but I've heard that the NavStar plug-in for Good Lock now fixes this.
