Open the app, hit the recents button, and hold on the icon of the app. An "i" will appear to the right and you can press that to get to the app info page.

So intuitive

sesame shortcuts might work, but I don't think it works for all apps.

This is NO longer the case for the oreo update. It was as such for Nougat.

This feature is coming from your app... I think the app devs did not prepare this app for Oreo then. I tested the long press feature on several other apps and it is still working.

It's function of the launcher. Nova Launcher and probably other 3rd party ones still have these menus.

You must still be on Nougat. They removed all these in the update to Oreo.
