Hi all,

Let's talk about Flyme OS's SmartBar insteed of the stock buttons

IMO it's a great feature that Android stock must have for 2 reasons:

-> It's a major evolution for Android since a loooong time
-> Fixed buttons are quite big and uggly: The SmartBar is soooo smart, for example in the music player, all the buttons for playing II, RWD <<, FWD >> are in the SmartBar, so you have more space in the screen for a lot of stuff insteed of these 3 biiiiiiig buttons plus the control for music

I know that some port are available, but Flyme OS is crappy globally and it's not the latest version of Android

So what do you think?
Do you think it's possible to port this feature as a module for Xposed for example?

Yeah its good but as i see meizu has a home button so they didnt need to have home and back key on screen for you to be able to go to launcher or back....but yeah it will be great for google to make the navbar more interactive..

That's the point: the SmartBar has to keep a back button or a home button, and yes I want the navbar to be more interactive and smart (the back button is still there in the SmartBar as you see)

No only the home button or the back button in the app plus buttons from the app, and then when you go back to the launcher: the search button and recent apps for example
Or with a long press on back button you go back to home (or recent app panel) when using an app, so you need the home or the back button only

well yeah, the idea itself is cool, but I don't really see any possible senario for it to be brought to life
