From the start, Android was designed as a flexible operating system to handle all types of screen sizes. Over the last two years, we’ve focused on redesigning the experience on devices with larger screens, like tablets and foldables phones, with software updates including 12L and Android 13. With so many great large screen devices to choose from, Android makes it much easier for you to take advantage of the extra screen space. For example, we’ve obsessed over every millisecond to ensure the transition is seamless as you unfold your foldable phone, and helped boost your productivity with improved multi-column layouts and tabletop mode.
We know apps are what make your tablet and foldable phone useful and fun, so this year at I/O, we announced that more than 50 Google apps have been updated to make the most of the larger screen. We’ve also worked with many of your favorite apps like Calm, Candy Crush Soda Saga and Peloton to ensure they look great and are easy to use.
