A popular feature of Pixel phones has been Active Edge, a shortcut for Google Assistant that is triggered when the frame of the phone is squeezed firmly. The new Pixel 5 doesn't support that feature anymore, but Jason Howell shows how using an app called SideSqueeze+ can bring back that functionality thanks to the onboard Barometer.

  • What is Active Edge?
  • Installing SideSqueeze+.
  • Allowing special actions using ADB.
  • Calibrating the app to work properly.
  • Screen Press and Plus section for Galaxy devices.
  • Using the Analyzer section.
  • Disabling the persistent notification.
