    Does anybody know how to auto hide on screen buttons? For example my old lg g3 had a setting where you can pick what apps will auto hide the on screen buttons. No root Screenshot_2015-09-26-17-53-33.png

    Switch to superior capacitive buttons, or enable expanded desktop in settings.

    GMD Immersive Mode
    Fist up is GMD Full Screen Immersive Mode. The developers of this app rose to prominence with a mod that provided similar functionality to Immersive Mode before that feature was even added to Android.

    Once installed, a notification widget will allow you to toggle between 3 soft key modes—the normal mode, hidden soft keys, or hidden soft keys and status bar. As with all Immersive Mode mods, you can simply swipe up from the bottom of the screen to temporarily bring back your soft keys.

    If you'd like some help setting up GMD, be sure to check out Neil's full tutorial on the subject.

    Power Toggles
    If you'd rather have this functionality in a home screen widget, or if you'd simply prefer a notification widget with more functionality than GMD offers, Power Toggles is the way to go. This app is designed for giving you quick access to system functions like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, but it can also be set up to quickly trigger Immersive Mode.

    Thank you for GMD, I can finally hide those button on the home screen. Unfortunately the third option (hide low and high bar) doesn't work for me.
    I'm on Nova Launcher.

    Why are you using screen buttons when you have the option of capacitive buttons?

    Have you not read the manual for understanding of functions and features?
