Hi, I'm surprised not to find a bug describing this. I'm afraid you might consider it « not a bug » but to me, it clearly is.

The TabbedPage on Android does not implement swipe gestures to change tabs. This is unfortunately the behavior we are to expect on this platform (see for example on GooglePlay). Many users already complained about this (one on three) and I can't find a simple way to workaround this.

If you need any additional informations do not hesitate.

Any news or plans on this?
There is hundreds of posts with users asking for this (basic) functionality.
I can't imagine why is this so hard to implement?

AppCompat backend supports this.
