Is there a way to enable immersive mode on the Pixel 7 pro? Is there any root or Xposed option to do so? I want to enable immersive mode on a per app basis through tasker. This functionality seems to have been lost in Android 13.

I use the Xposed module "None Display Cutout". After installing it, go to Settings > Developer Options > Display Cutout and set it to "No Display Cutout".

Then I use XposedEdgePro to creat shortcuts to turn it off and on. You can trigger it by gesture, quicksettings or activity shortcut.

I'm not sure what the best way is to set it on a per-app basis.

I don't understand the utility in Xposed edge pro. Doesn't it make an annoying half moon circle with different buttons pop out? Each having its own customized function? You're making it execute a small script that is to go into settings tho and activate immersive mode after installing the display cutout option. Is that correct?

Well, the None Display Cutout module doesn't actually give you immersive mode by itself. It basically just makes your phone ignore the hole-punch camera. Without it, you will have a black section of unused space above the app and camera if you go into immersive mode. So, it just let's you use the full screen.

I just use Xposed Edge Pro, because it offers a working way to go into immersive mode, but you don't actually need to open it after setting it up. You don't need the pie/halfmooon menu. It has an activity that can be called. I have a different custom menu that I set up with another app that calls the XposedEdge Pro shortcut to put the phone into immersive mode. Xposed Edge also lets you add quick settings buttons to hide the status or nav bars.

You could also just set up gestures through Xposed Edge to trigger immersive mode

And this is while using the gesture navigation or are you using the nav bar?

Is this the Xposed module you're using?


Is it functioning on lsposed 1.8.7, magisk stable 25.2, and android 13? It hasn't had an update since 2021.

This is the None Display Cutout module that I am using:
Sorry, it is a Magisk module, not an Xposed module.

I use the gesture navigation, but I don't use the XposeEdge gestures. I was just saying that there are different ways of triggering it. There might be some other apps that still, work, but the other old apps that put the device in immersive mode just didn't seem to work anymore. So, Xposed Edge was the only way I could get it working. If all you care about is getting rid of of the gesture pill at the bottom, and don't want to hide the status bar, there is a mod you can use with Substratum Lite.

You mentioned using Tasker. Well, I just looked in Tasker and it does give you the option to call an App Shortcut from Xposed Edge Pro. I sort of got per-app immersive working with Tasker.

To test it try this:
1. Press the + button to add new profile and select "Application"
2. Select all apps that you want to be in immersive mode
3. For you task, select App > Shortcut > Xposed Edge Pro > Hide Status Bar > Turn On.
4. Do the same thing as above, but select Hide Navigation Bar.

At this point it should trigger it when you open one of those apps that you specified. The main issue is that it persists if you go to any other app. So then you might need to create an inverse version of the profile and tasks above, to turn it off for every other app, including your launcher. There is about a quarter second delay for the immersive to turn on when you switch to a new app, though.

Thanks. In the app settings reborn thread here on XDA they're saying it's not compatible with A13 tho.
It works on A13. I've been using it since day one on Pixel 7 Pro. Immersive mode, custom dpi and font size work. Only few apps are incompatible (Google Photos, Files, Recorder).

Screenshots:

1. Chrome with immersive mode enabled.
2. ES File Explorer with immersive mode and custom dpi.

I flashed a zip that makes my status bar 1px so the notification pull-down gesture still works but the screen is basically stretched to the top of the phone. Works perfectly
