    I was able to download the Gestures Beta app on the Icon with no problem. Upon opening the app, before restarting the device, the app opens and I see two of the four possible available functions:

    1.) Answer incoming calls when I raise the phone to my ear.
    2.) Toggle speaker mode during a call when I place the phone face up on a surface or raise it back to my ear.

    I have not tested the first yet as I have not received a call this morning. But the toggle speaker does not work.

    So I reset the phone, and tried to open the Gestures Beta app again. This time it simply won't open. Surprise, surprise!

    I know that the app is in Beta, but I've gotta think that the problem is the firmware. I'm running the Icon with 8.1 developer preview & Black firmware. I don't have Cyan because Verizon is from Satan. Our lack of Cyan/8.1 on Verizon continues to haunt us as Microsoft moves forward.

    Has anyone else been able to get it to work?

    It works just perfectly on my Lumia 920 and I am quite surprised for a beta app to function such perfectly. Maybe you could tell us what phone you are using these features on as some features won't work on some phones like 530, 630, which don't have some important sensors like proximity etc.

    Haven't you read the post OP is using Lumia Icon and he wants fellow lumia icon users to answer if they are facing the same issues or not...

    I also have an Icon and after multiple soft resets none of the Gesture functions work. I'm guessing it needs to have Cyan but that's just a guess. No worries, I'm sure we'll have Cyan in another 6-18 months...

    That's been my experience as well.

    By the way, welcome to Windows Central!

    So it turned the speaker on when I sat it down on my desk, and then turned the speaker off when I picked it up. It's something with Cyan.

    I'm sorry OP. I read the post in a hurry and while asking you for your phone model I actually took a look at the post searching for numbers like 920, 1520, 930, I didn't find any. I thought all Nokia phones had numbers in it, completely had forgotten Icon. :D
    Anyway, my guess is that it needs Cyan then, cause everything works perfectly fine on my phone, that is 920.

    My guess is it needs the snapdragon sensor core enabled which won't happen until official Cyan comes out for the Icon :( Same goes for the step counter etc....

    Odd that it's not working on a 930 when a test ICON with Cyan does work.

    It doesn't seem to be sensor core related. I have a 925 (does not have sensor core) and all four functions work fine. It's likely due to Cyan.

    I feel your pain, my Icon owning brothers...

    I say odd because the 930 normally does things that the Icon cant. I would say you're running into an issue with the app and need to reinstall it.
