    So I was toiling over what app to assign my convenience key to, after experimenting with several, I decided to pair it with the quick setting Notification drop down app! It's been awesome! I have fairly small hands- Larger than trumps but still small and constantly pulling down from the top made it annoying. I secretly felt like I was going to drop my phone. This however has changed everything - with the touch of a button, down comes my notification drawer! It's the little things I tell you!

    Under "all shortcuts" I am not seeing a notification drop down option.

    Might be helpful if more info is provided. Under "all shortcuts" I am not seeing a notification drop down option.
    He's talking about an app. Here's on app that works great for the Convenience Key drop down status thing.

    The end all use for a convenience key!! in my humble opinion...-screenshot_20170630-215639.png

    I too hate reaching all the way up to the top to get into the quick settings...on my older BB's could do it with my thumb with the easiest of ease. I was lookin for something to use for the convenience key that would be helpful but couldn't think of anything. This is perfect. Thanks.

    Still haven't come up w/ a useful convenience key action/app. My "swipe down" on any home page pulls down the notification tray (on Nova Launcher). I have the double Power button as camera. All other quick actions are through gestures. I would do the phone app but due to placement of the key, I general press it by accident and afraid of random dialing. hmm...

    It doesn't exist without an app.

    So you can bring the tray down but still have to reach way up there to do anything about it right? Running an Android phone requires either octopus hands or lots of time. Can you tell that I still have no idea what's always been so attractive to people about Android??

    I have my convenience key set to take a screen shot in Notable and by ready for editing (since u can use it anywhere)

    I have set my "V" key to a "Nova Action" (Ive purchased Nova Launcher for my other phones in the past) to pull down notifications.. Since V looks like a down arrow! Haha!

    Consequently, bcuz I have Nova, I can assign a shortcut key to open Google Assistant thru a Nova Action!

    No, I have Nova installed, but I am using BB Launcher for the shortcuts..

    Having Nova installed, you can assign whatever Nova Action you want to a shortcut key!

    Yes, but don't you need to be on the home screen to do it like that? With the convenience key as the shortcut, you can drop the screen from anywhere.

    I switched to KeyOne from an iphone and miss the side flip switch to turn on/off ring and notifications so I set my convenience key to the ring volume shortcut under device shortcuts to toggle between silent, vibrate and volume.

    I might have to try this too, I'm constantly switching at work, so this is very helpful.

    You know what would make this truly complete...And this maybe asking for too much, but if it opened and closed the notification drawer with the touch of a button...The definition of phone foreplay...

    As stated before and how it works on my Pixel XL, please whomever does the coding, program the fingerprint sensor to slide the notification shade up/down by doing this action with a finger. Welcome to Android too!
