swipeGesture in ion-segment has no effect

I tried hard to make the segment feature with swipe gesture (left and right) work, but no success. Could it be a bug or I have not done it correctly? Any help is appreciated.

  <ion-segment swipe-gesture="true" value="x" [(ngModel)]="segmentModel">
    <ion-segment-button value="x">
    <ion-segment-button value="y">
    <ion-segment-button value="z">
