Google has announced Android 12L. Android 12L is a modified Android version for folding phones, tablets and Chrome OS.
Read on after the ad.
Android 12L makes efficient use of large screens
Foldable smartphones are becoming increasingly popular and Android tablets are also widely used. Google realizes this all too well and will release a new, modified version of the operating system in early 2022: Android 12L. The current Android 12 works fine on large screens, but offers no extra functionality. That will change with Android 12L.
The improvements in Android 12L are visible directly on the home screen. A two-column interface is central to the software. The big screen is, as it were, ‘split in two’. This means, for example, that the settings and notifications in the drop-down panel are displayed side by side.
The new interface is also clearly visible in the settings app. The main settings are permanently on the left, while the sub settings are on the right. On the lock screen, the time is on the left and notifications on the right. Again, this only applies to large, foldable screens – such as the screen of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3.
Multitasking made easier thanks to the taskbar
With Android 12L, Google also focuses on improving multitasking in addition to filling large screens. For example, there is the new taskbar, which makes switching between different apps a lot easier. It is now also possible to use two applications side by side. This makes it almost as if you are sticking two smartphones together.
Android 12L will be available on the next generation of folding phones in early 2022, according to Google. The manufacturer is working with other smartphone makers to bring the software to new devices soon. So we have to be patient a little longer.
