Android Q brings 'deep press' similar to 3D Touch on iOS

As reported by 9to5Google, the company will be introducing the feature of deep press and as per the documentation it is related to "Motion Event". For example, hard pressing on Instagram's app icon using a 3D Touch-equipped iPhone will invoke a menu to create a new post or make a search.

One of the defining features of 2016's iPhone 6s was 3D Touch, which allowed users to press harder on the display in order to change the way they interacted with an app or a menu option.

Documentation for the MotionEvent object in Android Q that reports movements from mouse, pen, finger, and trackball reveals a new input type called "deep press".

And Barca could still win the treble this term with a Copa del Rey final against Valencia and a Champions League campaign still to play.

As Kottmann states in the tweet, the exact details around how Deep Press will work are unclear.

That sounds an terrible lot like the pressure sensitivity screen tech Apple has been using in the Apple Watch, MacBook trackpads and its iPhone range for years, and we've seen some Android manufacturers play with the tech in the past. Will Android manufacturers need to add press-sensing hardware to up-coming devices, or will the tech instead use machine learning to calculate the force being applied to a screen? If that's the case, that will be clever. The company working on bringing 3D touch like feature with Android Q. The feature will be similar to that of iPhones 3D Touch functionality. Even legendary usability experts Donald Normal and Jakob Nielsen pointed out that these techniques are "hard to learn and remember with the general mobile user" on a December 2017 study. If such a feature is planned for the public rollout of the software update, there's a good chance we'll hear about it when Google takes the stage next month.
