Users can swipe up or down on the edge to check notifications or quickly switch apps. This edge also shows battery charging status and notifications for incoming calls, messages, and alarms. More interestingly, the curved side of the edge shows two customizable buttons at the top and bottom that can be used as triggers when gaming in landscape mode.

One can also create a custom theme which is also reflected inside the notification drawer. Another feature that the company is tapping for phones from the Motorola Edge series is the Wave-Tune Dual Stereo Speaker.
