Kill foreground app

Hi, I’m coming from LineageOS 20 and I liked the kill foreground app function avaible via Settings > Buttons > Long swipe action > Kill foreground app.

This isn’t available in e/os V2 for OnePlus N200 (dre)
I could not see anythng similar in dev options either.

As it stands, swiping up makes the app go away. Going to Configuration > Apps > App Info; the app is still running as Force stop is displayed.

When killing the app, force stop is grayed out meanimg the app is not running.

Not sure if this is the same, but, Bliss launcher, if I swipe down quick settings twice, I see this at the foot of the screen.

Don’t see that on my device.
Just the gear and power buttons are shown.

This was on e-2.1-t-xxx-dev-ocean, I have not had the phone very long, I maybe didn’t see it straight off as it requires two pull down of quick settings, not certain if it preceded e-2.0-t. Not seen on 2.0-r- builds.

Anybody able to confirm if “kill foreground app” is available via Settings > Buttons > Long swipe action > Kill foreground app.


i find it on e-0.18-r, but not on e-2.1-r
