Feature details

Users can now leverage instinctual touch interactions throughout the Guides application. Although users can still operate a Guide with hands-free interactions, core app functionality such as sign-in or starting a guide will have an updated touch interface.

When a user raises their hand at any time, a small launcher menu will appear. After pressing one of the buttons on the launcher, a touch panel appears in front of the user where they can use touch to start a guide.
