The new Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL only have the gesture-based navigation which means this feature doesn’t come as an option as it comes on the Pixel 2 devices. This has been confirmed by @madebygoogle later on via a tweet as well. Upon asking by a user if the gesture navigation can be disabled, Google replied that the team has now introduced a new pattern that will represent navigation on all Android phones going forward.
Google says change and adaptation to the new pattern are hard but it’s definitely better and makes app switching a faster experience.
