Well, I’ll be: Just when we thought we’d uncovered all there is to know about Google’s almost-ready-for-prime-time Android 12 update, a futuristic new feature has snuck its way into the mix.

A glance to the left, for instance, could take the place of the typical system-level Back gesture. A glance upward could open your notifications. And a coy-looking eyebrow raise could take you back to your home screen (as well as make anyone around you think you’re the most awkward person alive).
