But users can now change the look of this assistant touch and can make it much better and it will almost like the one found in Ios. The best thing found in this assistant touch is that it features the Home button which is very handy if you don’t want to use your Home button again and again or the Home button is faulty.
Basically the myth behind the touch assistant was to help the people having physical impairments or for those specific devices whose buttons are not working properly like the home button or the volume up and down buttons. Now it has become so popular that just forget about the faulty buttons, people love to use them on their device, no matter they are using the Android or the iOS .
