Since we switched to the tablet tabs tray on mobile, we should think about whether we should also implement the back button in the top left of the tabs tray to keep parity with tablet
Can we get a build? I think this makes sense. Top left has become pretty synonymous with "Back" across applications even across iOS and Android.

I like that too! The only thing I'm worried about is do we use this back button consistently enough for other screen where a back would be beneficial? where else do/should we be using the back button?


Also, wouldn't I just use my native OS back button on Android?
We currently use it in Settings so it makes sense. This is also very much in alignment with googles new design specs and our iOS cousins.

NI-ing martyn since we want to move forward with this.
