Google will return to Android 12 a convenient feature that for some reason removed from Android 11

Published

According to the source, Google will return to the next version of its Android operating system a feature that was actively tested and should have appeared in Android 11. This feature is called Columbus.

This designation hides the ability to perform a series of actions by double tapping on the lid of a smartphone – in much the same way as the screen is awakened by tapping on the display. By default, double tapping on the lid was supposed to launch Google Assistant, but this action could be replaced with almost any other action: turn off the alarm, start the camera, stop video playback, mute the sound on an incoming call, etc. In Android 12, Columbus will be trimmed, using this feature, you can, again, call Google Assistant, take a screenshot, pause and resume video playback, open notifications or background applications menu.

To prevent accidental pushes on the lid or other actions from being interpreted as a double tap, the user will first need to register this “gesture”. Also, in the Android settings, Columbus can be completely turned off.
