App drawer will not open in Android 12

Since updating to Android 12 my app drawer will not open, making it pretty much unusable. It lags for a couple of seconds with a screen graphic, appears to open and then immediately closes.

Does anyone have the same issue and is there a fix?


  • Something seems to have gone wrong with the gesture that opens the app drawer. The only response is from the lower centre, from which a blue circle rises, about the same size as the fingerprint icon. It stutters and shows the app drawer for a split second. All other gestures work fine including closing/minimizing apps which is a similar gesture.

    Reboots haven't fixed it and I'll be annoyed if I have to factory reset. If I have to do that I'll revert to Android 11.
