App switcher jumping around

Please tell us some basic information before asking for help:

  1. Model Name: Zenfone 9 16/256GB
  2. Firmware Version: WW_32.2030.2030.26
  3. Rooted or not: Not
  4. Frequency of Occurrence: Intermittent, daily
  5. APP Name & APP Version (If your issue relates to the app): Unrelated, system wide

In addition to information above, please also provide as much details as you can, e.g., using scenario, what troubleshooting you've already done, screenshot, etc.

========================================

With apps open, whenever opening the app switcher (bottom right navigation button for people who use the nav buttons), it will initially open to show you one recent app but then very quickly update and change the app shown to another recent app. Often this is two or three apps back in your opened apps history.

For example, if I open Chrome, Whatsapp, Gmail, then Whatsapp again, and then hit the app switcher:

First Gmail may be displayed as expected as it was the previously used app. But it may then suddenly switch to showing me Chrome, with the other two apps to the right

This seems to happen more frequently with more apps open, and doesn't happen all the time. It happens just slowly enough to notice it, but also slowly enough that you end up clicking the wrong app due to expecting android to always show the previous app as on other phones.

Could this please be fixed?

    I'm also seeing this behaviour.

  • Hey @ACH_, I've reported the issue to the R&D team.

  • Same issue on my end.

  • ACH_ACH_ Level 1

    Still happening on WW_32.2040.2040.23

  • Same issue here

  • ACH_ACH_ Level 1

    Also, when re opening apps like WhatsApp, the view is scrolled backwards in the chat

    Same.

    Also, usually it should be possible to tap the app switcher butten twice quickly, it then should switch to the previous app immediatly. This way it's easy to switch back and forth between two apps in quickly.

    This also does not work most of the times. When I try to do this, I'm oft back at the homescreen which makes no sense at all.

    When I tap it twice slowly, and afterwards quickly, it seems to work tough. So It's more of an "bug at first use".
