Google Pixel and Samsung Galaxy phones now have one of the best secret iPhone features

After spending some time testing the Google Pixel 7 ProI stumbled upon a feature that was previously confined to the best iPhones: the touch back (either Quick tap on Pixel-ese) gesture. As much as I like the new top features of the Pixel 7 Pro, whether we’re talking about the camera macro mode, blur photo either guided frame — Quick Tap is what I loved the most.

In Google’s case, Quick Tap allows you to activate a feature or open an app. For example, I like to use the same double-tap on my iPhone (a feature that’s been around since iOS 14) to pull down the notification shade, avoiding the need to swipe down from the top of the screen when I need to see my incoming alerts. iPhones go a step further by letting you set up a triple-tap gesture as well, which I use to bring up the Control Center menu.
