Decent pressure-sensitive UIs on mobile devices have been hard to remember to use — namely, Apple’s 3D Touch. Microsoft has its own idea on what to do and we know that Google has an inkling as well. But while we were able to see Launcher Shortcuts function in their infacy, we’re told to be set for a long wait if we want to see the real thing.
Sources to Re/Code said that the feature will likely be in the wings until a later release of Android N, perhaps in a maintenance update. A Google representative declined comment.
The longer lead time for this feature might be expected because of its relative obscurity within the OS package. But will we see a teaser at Google I/O next week? We all have less of a wait for that.
