Turning on Advanced mode
activates the squeeze and hold gesture.
In this mode, you'll be able to do the following with Edge Sense
- While you're using HTC Camera, squeeze and hold the lower sides of your phone to switch between the main and front cameras. You can do this only if the squeeze gesture—whether it's the short squeeze or squeeze and hold—is set to Launch Camera app.
- Do two different actions when squeezing, depending on how long you squeeze. By default, short squeeze opens the Camera app. Squeeze and hold launches the default voice assistant which is Google Assistant. You can assign these two squeeze gestures to other actions.
Home screen, swipe up and then tap
- Select the Enable advanced mode check box.
- Follow the onscreen instructions to set the squeeze force levels.
- To change the action the phone takes when you squeeze it, tap Customize short squeeze action, and then choose your preferred option.
- To change the action the phone takes when you squeeze and hold it, tap Customize squeeze & hold
action, and then choose your preferred option.
- Press to save your settings.
