Tips & Tricks: Quick Menu Android

Not many folks know it, but there’s a faster way to open those three-dot overflow menus in a lot of apps — including core Google titles like Android Messages, Chrome, Gmail, Drive, Contacts and Phone (which is currently available only on Nexus and Pixel devices).

Rather than tapping the icon to load the menu and then tapping the item you want, simply swipe downward on the icon and move your finger directly to your item of choice — without ever lifting your paw from the screen. The menu will appear as you swipe, and whatever item your finger is touching when you let go will be activated.
