This is a bit of a Hail Mary, but has anyone come across user testing or studies on the use of bezel gestures (i.e. swiping in from the left bezel onto the screen, or Microsoft's Edge UI)? I'm guessing MS must have done some testing but my Googling has proven useless in finding anything of use.

I'm trying to determine just how discoverable these types of gestures are, and trying to make a case for adding some kind of on-screen UI to surface functionality relegated to a bezel menu.
