Title says it all ... I had already reported this in another thread somewhere ...

However, I was not aware that this is actually a Google issue, explained here:

Many of you probably knew this, I did not ...
Still, I used Nova on OnePlus 8 pro as well and there such issues were NOT present.

Anyway, looks like we'll just have to accept it.

I've not experienced these issues on my P6P. I'm trying it now and Chrome and Pocket Casts seem to open up immediately. Same with the other listed issues: Clear All is there, and the animations look just a fluid.

Nova is working fine on my P6P, i can return to the home screen and open something else instantly.

Gestures have worked fine with Nova for some time, they worked from the off on my Pixel 5 and that was in October 2020.

I know the delay you're referring to, it's certainly a minor annoyance but not enough of a deal breaker for me to no longer use Nova - the benefits outweigh such a con!

I'm intrigued by QuickSwitch but see Nova isn't supported so unsure if this would even be able to help?

Ah sorry I wasn't paying attention. I know I had/have the delay with lawnchair and this always fixes it. Think it's something to do with recents.

Are you using the latest beta build of NOVA Launcher? As of this writing, that would be 7.0.54.
