With the 9th version of Android OS, we have the new Recent Apps. This feature is of course integrated on Pixel launcher. However, other launchers are compatible with it as well. this includes the 3rd-party launcher too. Now you cannot simply put in any launcher on your device. It's not that simple. So, to make it simple we bring you a Magisk module called QuickSwitch. In this post, we will tell you how to install it.
With QuickSwitch, you can install any launcher has access to quickstep (Pie recents App). It automatically detects which launchers support the recents App feature. Also, it is fairly simple to use. However, you need root access on your device to install this Magisk Module. Speaking of which, it's mandatory to flash your phone with latest magisk before flashing this module.
