The Google Pixel 2 and 2 XL have a secret menu button, turns out its a bug

This week, more and more people will get be receiving delivery of the new Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones. Android Police first discovered a secret menu key that can be accessed through the Pixel 2s navigation bar, which was later confirmed by CNET.

You can tap the lower right corner of the display, just to the right of the recent apps button and youll feel haptic feedback as if a button from the Nav bar was pressed. This button acts like the menu key, a button that used to be part of the Androids set of Navigation keys before on-screen keys were introduced with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Android Ice Cream Sandwich.

Google confirmed to CNET that this button is not a feature, but actually a bug in the software. Google intends to fix the ghost menu key in an upcoming OTA update. This means the hidden menu button isnt going to stick around for much longer.
