Where are the Home, Back and Recent buttons on my Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+?

Where are the Home and Back buttons?

 

The Home, Back and Recent apps buttons are now available onscreen instead of as physical button.

 

The buttons may disappear from the screen occasionally when using certain apps and functions (such as watching a video). Simple drag upwards from the bottom of the screen to bring them up again if you need them.

 

You can change the order of the buttons to suit your preference (ie put the Recent button on the right, and the Back button on the left, or vice versa). Note that the Home button will always remain in middle.
