Android Back Button


today I found that in experimental function I am able to switch on "Back Button on Android devices".


I turned on and published aplication, but nothing changed - physical back button still close whole application.


Do you have any experience with these function?

I've never even seen that, my guess is that it is coming and not quite here yet.  There are still a lot of open ideas suggestion this ability, but I've not seen any news or blog post yet for the option.

Just a wild guess that it is a new and to be introduced option.

I wish i could see this option too. It seems it is probably in an experimental stage because i can't see it

I have this experimental option available. I turned it on and tested it out, but it doesn't work. The back button still tries to close the app. Is there something else I need to configure to make this experimental feature work?

Hi, I disovered how to turn it on. 
You need to:
1) enable this experimental function

2) in power apps studio change App -> BackEnabled to 'true'


Thanks @happyfeet992 it worked!
