    Is it possible also on Android 4.4.2 ? I cannot find the option to activate this useful function, which I used to have enabled on 4.2.2

    • Yes, it is available in Android 4.4.2. Look for ‘buttons’ option in Settings. If it’s not available then, it might be your Android firmware of device which doesn’t allow this feature.
