Tell me everything about it. I am unfamiliar and find myself suddenly needing to learn.

What do you want to know? Also, what version do you have? 9 or 10?

I just upgraded to 10 after getting to know 9 for almost a day.

Tell me what I can do with it.

The gestures feature has made the transition from iOS pretty easy. Also, dark mode is pretty tight.

Tip: Double tapping the power button is a shortcut to opening the camera.

Tip: pressing and holding an app icon for a second brings up options for that app. Some apps can become widgets.

I have it set so if I swipe my screen from a specific corner, even when locked, the camera opens up

That's a good way to accidentally open your Google Assistant, friend.

Here's a good Android question: How can you tell if an app is running in the background?

I've been researching "launchers" and I have a question.

If you add a launcher like Nova, can you delete it later and go back to the Pixel launcher that came with the device?

Google results vary on this issue so I figured I'd consult tech support.
