Well, it’s no secret that a number of Android users are still using Android Marshmallow while Android Nougat has been released to the public for months now. Indeed, the latter OS with full of new cool features is available on a bunch of Goggle’s Nexus-branded devices. As for those who are still stuck on Android Marshmallow, you can still enjoy the fingerprint gestures feature that is included in Android 7.0 Nougat. You are now able to enable the feature on your Marshmallow phones using a new app from SuperThomasLab, called Fingerprint Gestures.
You can get the Fingerprint Gestures app for free from the Google Play Store. Once you have it installed on your Android device, you can definitely make use of fingerprint sensor actions like single taps, double taps or swipes to perform a variety of functions on your device.
Plus, aiming to offer up the same functionality as the Google Pixel and Pixel XL, the latest Fingerprint Gestures does let you open the notifications panel by swiping down on your fingerprint sensor, open an app by tapping on the sensor once, make your phone sleep by double tapping the sensor, and a lot more. In addition to these default settings, the app provides you with a handful of customization options to select from. However, some actions might require root to make sure they work perfectly. Don’t stress out yet, they remain useful if you are yet to root your Android Marshmallow device. It’s worth noting that you don’t have to root your device to enjoy fingerprint gestures feature.

Fingerprint Gestures requires Android devices running Marshmallow or later with a fingerprint scanner. The developer also warns that the app can just work if Google’s fingerprint API has been implemented.
