The long press on the Power button that I used on my earlier Android (Oreo) is now popping up the assistant. So what is the secret gesture?
This is for a Pixel 7 if that makes a difference.

On a Pixel Device
Power + volume up pressed simultaneously will give you options to restart amongst others
Note: You won't find the bug report option unless you enable it from developer options (enabled by tapping build number 7 or more times)
For Samsung users. the gesture is Power + volume down , per this comment
Long pressing the power button is still the standard gesture to show the power menu, including the restart option. However, the Assistant is likely due to the system gesture setting.
At least for Pixel devices with Android 12 or later: Settings → System → Gestures → Press and hold power button → Hold for Assistant.
|Off||Press and hold for the power menu|
|On||Press and hold for the Assistant|
