    A neat trick on the Pixel 2 is the ability to swipe the fingerprint sensor to open or close the notification shade.
    1. Go to Settings > System
    2. Select Languages, input & gestures
    3. Select Advanced
    4. Tap Swipe fingerprint for notifications
    5. Toggle the switch on

    Yes, I'd figured it out but it was annoying how deeply they'd hidden a useful feature like that.

    YES. The Settings are organized weird in some areas. Most phones have "Language & input" as its own section. Not sure why Google buried it in System.
