Well, if you are thinking about this cool feature on your own Android Phone (which is neither Pixel or HTC) then keep you are on the right post.
Squeeze Your Android Phone
SideSqueeze analyzes data from the barometric pressure sensor in your Waterproof phone to detect squeeze gestures and then performs an action of your choosing. Its efficient detection algorithm is designed to be as lightweight and low-power as possible with no noticeable impact on battery life.
It can perform many common actions, however certain ones (immersive status/nav toggles, rotation toggle) require a command to be run via Android Developer Bridge (adb). Instructions can be found from within the app on the [Help / FAQ] tab. This step only needs to be performed once.
– Adjustable pressure threshold
– Pressure gauge to help you find the best trigger threshold
– Action while screen-on
– Action while screen-off (requires a wakelock, eg. playing music)
– Action on home screen [Pro only] (one-time adb command required)
– Action on lock screen [Pro only] – Long squeeze while screen-on
– Long squeeze on home screen [Pro only] (one-time adb command required)
– Long squeeze on lock screen [Pro only] – ForcePress (beta)
Q: Won’t accessibility services slow down my phone?
A: SideSqueeze does not affect the performance of your device in any way. Many people know that granting accessibility services to an app can cause a significant decrease in performance. However, that only applies to apps that request lots of information (eg. hundreds of updates when a list is scrolled). SIDESQUEEZE DOES NOT REQUEST ANYTHING. Instead, the need for accessibility services is only a formality in order to gain the ability to “press” keys like Home, Recents, and Back. SideSqueeze will never slow your phone down!
Q: Will this work on any phone?
A: It has only been tested on the S8+ and Note8. Other watersealed devices may work, too. Unfortunately it is imperative that your device must be watersealed, otherwise, there is nothing to detect.
