Google introduces Android 12L with UI optimized for large tablet and foldable screens

Google is committed to improving the experience of using tablets and foldables, practically smartphones with a larger screen or with the ability to take various forms; in short, not traditional smartphones. And that’s why the Android OS must be able to adapt to these formats to ensure a better user experience for watching a movie, replying to emails or video chats, or whatever. On tablets, the Android team has already introduced Kids Space in 2020 And Entertainment Space in 2022 to allow the whole family to watch content and highlight apps to stay connected, enjoyable and productive. And on the folds, Google worked closely with Samsung to optimize the interface of the devices Galaxy Z Fold3 5G And Galaxy Z Flip3 5G. It is now official Android 12L, an update based on Android 12 with features designed to make tablets and foldables simpler and easier to use. The main news was presented by Andrei Popescu, VP of Engineering of Android, in a post on the Google blog.

The larger the screen, the more space available to display information. For this, Android 12L offers a new layout for easier viewing of contents, so that they look even better on tablets and folding screens especially on the home screen, lock screen, notification area, configuration screens of the device, settings and other system sections. This optimization is also the result of feedback from Android users: after learning that the most common reason to swipe down to open the notification panel is to check and clear notifications, Android 12L now features notifications and quick action tiles in separate columns, so as to “give you more space to view and scroll away notifications” as Popescu said.
