If you swipe up from the newly added button, you will get a new multitasking panel which shows most recent apps. If you swipe up once more, you will get the app drawer. Users just need to tap on the button to go back to the home screen.

However, the swipe feature to switch between apps is replicated exactly like on the iPhone X. As soon as you release your finger, you will jump to the selected app. So, Google clearly portrayed the upcoming feature from iPhone X where you can scroll between your open apps by sliding the new home button.
