wallpapers News 2021-11-25
If you are a long-term user of Android, you are used to long pressing the power button (to turn the phone on or off. For a while, long-pressing the button while the phone is turned on can also allow you to restart, lock or signal an emergency. (During Android 10 You can also use it to take screenshots within a short time.)
Therefore, if you upgrade your phone to Android 12 and find that long pressing the power button does not bring up the shutdown menu but activates the Google Assistant, then you may feel a little uneasy. This is the content formulated by the new version of the operating system and should be a good thing.
Long press the power button to bring up this menu, or it can bring up the Google Assistant.
You can still get the power and emergency menu by pressing the power and volume up buttons at the same time. If you rarely (if any) need to turn off your phone, this might work for you. If you want to be less awkward when using the emergency button, or want to press and hold the power button again to shut down or restart the phone, don't worry you can change it back.
Open the "Settings" menu (swipe down from the top of the phone twice and tap the gear button).Choose System> Gestures.Go to the bottom of the menu and click "Press and hold the power button."Turn off "Waiting Assistant"."Press and hold the power button" is at the bottom of the gesture menu."Press and hold the power button" is at the bottom of the gesture menu.
 Turn it on to use the Google Assistant's power button, off to bring up the power menu.That's it!
By the way, there are many different options on the gesture menu that you might want to take advantage of for using taps and other gestures. For example, you can set up Quick Tap (double-tap on the back of the phone) to enable many features. For example, you can use it to take screenshots, open specific applications, and even access Google Assistant (this is how I set it up so that I can Long press the power button to display the emergency menu).
You can also arrange to press the power button twice to start the camera, return to the old-fashioned three-button navigation at the bottom of the screen, or turn on "Do Not Disturb" with the phone face down, etc.
