Android Q adding support for ‘deep presses’ similar to iOS’s 3D Touch
Date: 06 April 2019
According to Android Q documentation, the next big Android OS will natively support a feature called "deep press".
Inside of the docs for “MotionEvent,” which handles things like touchscreens, styluses, and mice, a new bit of information has become available for developers to use. A touch on the touchscreen can be “classified” as a “deep press.” The docs go on to explain what causes a touch to be a deep press and how an app should respond to one.
Deep press. The current event stream represents the user intentionally pressing harder on the screen. This classification type should be used to accelerate the long press behaviour.
