I have a Oppo Find 7 phone running Lollipop.

Since I don't really like ColorOS launcher, I decided to download Google Now Launcher from Play Store and set it as default launcher.

It works perfectly, except for the fact that neither of the hardware keys (not even while long-pressing) shows the recent apps window (i.e. where to close recently opened apps).

Is it normal? Is there any workaround?

    You mean recent apps key is not working? Which version of Android do you use?

  • Does your Android not have an option to configure buttons under Settings? Also, are you to open to app-based solutions?

  • yes, I'm opened to any app-based solution. recentapps key is working on stock launcher but not on Google app launcher (or I don't know how to use it). No button customization as far as I see

  • Please use @ followed by the name of person who you want to notify. Anyhow, is the device rooted?

  • @dragonmnl I guess Google Now Launcher is not fully supported for your phone. Can you try Apex Launcher or Nova Launcher and see if that works for you.

It seems there's a bug in ColorOS. Updating to latest beta (2.1.4i) solved it. Betas can be downloaded from the OPPO forums and flashed like any other ROM package.
