Hello, and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to turn on or off the option to allow applications to recognize three finger output gestures on an HTC One M8.
- 10Beneath that, is the menu for "Media gesture, Allow apps to recognize 3-finger output gestures." This means that we can control or open a number of applications just by touching the screen with three fingers.By pressing down on the screen with three fingers, and swiping, we can actually open different applications. It allows this to happen. It can be quite annoying at times. For example, if we were playing a game and we touched the screen, and it opens up applications. We may want to turn this off, or we may find it useful. It depends on how we want to use it.
- 13This then, concludes our tutorial on how to turn on or off the option to allow applications to recognize three finger output gestures on the HTC One M8.If you have any questions or comments about this video, or about the process you've seen in this video, then please leave them in the "Comments" section below, and we shall answer them for you.

Questions and Answers
I do not understand the difference in how it is normally with one finger and what will be different by enabling the three fingers gesture?
What changes if the three finger gesture is enabled or disabled. What is the difference in how I use one finger or three? I have tried: The three figure gesture was on and I'm afraid to turn it off because I don't know what it will do
Triple-finger gestures just facilitate giving commands to the smartphone. They act only like shortcuts adding nothing extra to the phone: you can still do the same with one or two fingers, but it will take a bit longer to do so. For example, swipe up the screen with three fingers will stream sound to speakers or video to TV by launching HTC Connect. In YouTube, this will let you share a video. Swipe down the screen with three fingers to stop HTC Connect. In the Car application, tapping with three fingers on the screen will activate the voice command mode. As you can see, you can do the same with one finger. Disabling the three-finger gesture is a good idea for those who never use three-finger gestures and prefer to do the same with one finger.
