How to fix "swipe to change app" problems on Pixel 3? (Pie)

by Will Sheppard   Last Updated October 09, 2019 20:11 PM - source

When I first got my Pixel 3, the swipe gesture to change to the previous app was very useful. I would swipe the home button to the right, and the app would change to the previous one. I swipe again and it would switch back to the first app.

But lately when I try this many times in a row, after about 4 or 5 swipes a third app appears that I don't want. Why is this?

I am swiping as quickly and shortly as I can, not holding down for a long time (as I would if I wanted to jump two or more apps).

Is there a known problem with the swipe-to-change-app mechanism on Pie? Has anything changed recently? I read about it being "broken" by design in Android Q (10), but I still have Pie.
