One of Google Pixel's most unique feature is the ability to swipe on the fingerprint sensor to toggle the notification panel. However when it was revealed that this was exclusive to the Pixel, Nexus users felt left out and so outraged that Google said they'll look into the issue.
An app developer SuperThomasLab aims to solve this issue with 'Fingerprint Gestures,' an application that does exactly what it sounds like. You can configure tapping, double-tapping, or swiping on your device's fingerprint reader to perform a variety of functions.
Any navigation button, opening/toggling the notifications panel, opening quick settings, media controls, opening an app, and more are all supported actions. If you have root access, you can perform additional actions like scrolling and activating sleep mode. Nougat users can also toggle split screen mode with any of the gestures (root not required).
The application requires Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and obviously a device with a fingerprint scanner.
