Smartphones are part of our daily lives. We use the for almost everything: entertainment, work, business. But, one really annoying thing is when you are using an app and close it by mistake. It happens to all of us, and it is frustrating, especially if it is work-related. However, thank the Android 11 OS, this issue is now solved. This operating system has a feature that allows you to reopen the app you have closed by mistake.
This article will help you make the most of this feature. Is your smartphone running on the Android 11 OS? Did you know about this feature? Read below to find out more. But, before we go into details, please note that the Android 11 is not available on all mobile phones. This operating system is still under development in the beta phase. However, the beta version can be tested for now, so why not explore it?
How to Reopen Closed Apps in Android 11
The process is very simple yet practical. Let’s say we accidentally close an app by swiping it upwards. What should we do in this case? Time it right! How to do it:
- First, make sure the recent app’s highlight is active.
- Pretend to close the app by mistake by swiping it upwards.
- To reopen it, simply swipe down from the top.
- The app that got closed will show up again in the recent apps.
This is how the new feature introduced in the Android 11 OS works. You need to be quick to bring back the closed app; otherwise, it will close down for good. This feature is available only on the latest operating system.
Undoing the app removal is a very cool feature that Android 11 will sport. It looks like Google just stepped up the game in terms of the gesture navigation. The upcoming Android OS will have a more complex gesture system, and we can’t wait to try it out for real.
