Swiping up for recent app completely broken. via OnePlus 8 Pro

    Out of nowhere my swipe up gesture is completely broken. At random I'll swipe up for recent app or to go home and the app swiped up just freezes in place. I can't do anything. Happens on any app randomly. My phone is almost unusable now. Happens constantly. Thanks a lot OnePlus. I really wanted to like this brand but the software bugs have been endless. It seems to be related to the launcher most of the time. I'm getting really sick of these bugs. I think I'm going to be switching to a Pixel. This launcher is always breaking. I can't find any solution. My recents just completely freezes. I have to swipe up from the bottom to get it to correct itself. Ridiculous. Can't wait to factory reset my phone for a 5th time! Crazy thing is I am extremely careful with my phone and run very common and basic apps. I do nothing wierd or fancy with my phone yet it constantly breaks on the software side of things. If no one on here is able to help me without asking me to factory reset i swear I'm switching to a Google pixel and never going back.

    Hey,
    Can you please clear cache of the launcher and in recovery?
    In addition, you always have the possibility to use a third party launcher, like Nova, Lawnchair, etc

    Yeah those are even worse especially with gesture consistency. Those are the exact recommended solutions for when i had issues with the launcher previously. Never fixed it. Factory reset. Now i jave this problem. I already cleared cache with the launcher did nothing.

    This happened immediately after i turned "hide bottom bar" on and off in navigation gestures. It refuses to correct itself. Also the launcher was updated 2 days ago on Google Play. I submitted a bug report the last time i had a bug with the launcher. No one acknowledged it. I was told in the forums to basically blame it on some other app. Yeah ok. Nope. I'll clear it there and the launcher again. Guarantee it's not going to fix it. Man can't wait to waste a ton of time on factory resetting my phone for the 6th time. Only to inevitably have to do it again in a couple months. I'm sorry I'm being nasty but this is ridiculous. I've really lost my patience and I'm pretty patient. I'll reset the cache for both and report back.

    Nope. I will but I'll end up having to reset the phone for a 6th time, they won't have a solution or show they care they didn't last time i had an issue similar to this. Also i cleared the cache in the launcher again as well as in recovery did nothing still completely broken.

    Actually, i've started using Nova launcher again since a week or so on my 8 pro, and i have to say, everything works very smooth, even the gestures, no problems at all. I'll even go as far as saying it works better than the stock launcher. I did buy the prime version at the time, don't know if that makes a difference.

    My brother uses the prime version on his Galaxy S20 FE. From what I've seen the gestures are not working 100% correctly. He's on Android 12. Maybe some phones work better than others. It doesn't work properly on his.

    Well, it's only been a week, but so far so good on my phone. I just thought i'd share my experience in case you'd want to try it, using another launcher may not be an ideal solution but if it solves the problem that way it may be worth a try until the stock launcher gets fixed.

    Ok i uninstalled the most recent version of the launcher from the Google Play store. It seems to be back to normal. Maybe if i just hunt down an apk before this version I'll be fine. Haven't been able to reproduce it yet.

    Yeah still can't reproduce the freezing since uninstalling the launcher update. Just a buggy app update. I'll just wait for a new version and see what happens. Thankfully it was something simple and didn't require a factory reset!

    Yeah, that seems like the most likely scenario. Here's hoping it sticks, and it'll go away with the next update for the launcher.🤞
