Why do you keep the edge panels 
If you are not adding features or renewing them
Or even encourage developers to do more edge panels

Exemple I used to have edge panels ( that they were stoped )
Gmail
Notifications
TikTok
facebook
Wigets

Would be good to see encouragement to this feature

Pple commenting obviously don't know what I'm talking about 

My thread isn't for a suggestion for a 3rd party but a proposition for aamsung to bring back their full feature of edge panel.

It was nice to have a quicker access for toggles, or sneak peek into notifications on the side of the app

Thanks :)

I use Swiftly Switch & LMT for quick access to Shortcuts for various apps. Each is used independently & Remain on the screen only when you are using them. 

Both are fully customizable.

You can download 3rd party Edge Panels from the Play Store, and they are compatible with Samsung devices. 

Have a look at the one in the screen shot. Watch the video from the Play Store & see if it is what you are looking for?

Apps evolve and not always how an individual wants. 

You might not be able to do exactly what you want, but find what can work for you.

I have yet to find a great use for the edge panel concept, and actually found it annoying as it interferes with the scroll bar when on the right side. Am I missing some great and compelling bonus that it gives?

Hi, please be assured that Samsung always strives to provide the best user experience on the device, We’ll ensure you that it will be considered as feedback and value your time contacting us.

We certainly bring it to our team for further review.

Hopefully, the feature that you are expecting might be added in future update.

The edge panel is still plenty useful. You can use it for quick multitasking, open pop up windows, split screen and even start/open some tasks. I use it all the time.

It just isn't compatible with 3rd party apps because even if Samsung allows access, the app developer team will need to work on it and make it compatible. Which I am suspecting that they don't want to or won't do.

For gmail, you can set widgets on the home screen to view your emails without opening the app.

For notifications. You can simply swipe down from the top of the screen. Why need edge panel for that?
