Change double tap speed of Navigation's bar button "Overview/Recents"


May 15, 2021
Hi guys!

So, pressing to times Overview button (usually the square one) on navigation bar while you are on an app, switches to the previously used app.

I've recently switched from xiaomi global to and I've noticed that the speed at which two taps on home button is recognized as double tap, and triggers "switch to previous app" has a very narrow windows, it can't be too slow nor too fast (this is the most annoying), meaning, if I do it too fast or too slow instead of switching to previous app, it will take me to the recent screen (shows all apps that are open right now)

I'd like to change the speed of what is recognized as a double tap, to go back to what my fingers are used to, but I can't find the option, and don't even know if it is possible. Does any of you happen to know how to change it? Here I leave information on my device:

  • Xiaomi Mi9T
  • MIUI 12 V12.1.2.0.RFJCNXM (stable) by
  • Magisk root
  • Twrp
  • CustoMIUIzer
  • Nova Launcher

Not possible. Only long-tap timeout can be changed in Accessibility settings, but not double-tap, which is hard-coded.
