“All told, there are over 250 million active large screen devices running Android,” Dave Burke, vice president of engineering at Google, wrote in the blog post. “With all of the momentum, we’re continuing to invest in making Android an even better OS on these devices, for users and developers.” Google said it plans to release the Android 12L feature-drop “in time for the next wave of Android 12 tablets and foldables.” A preview of the software update is available now for developers.
The tech behemoth intends to deploy the Android 12L feature update early next year. Google has announced plans to offer a feature update for Android 12 that is tailored at large-screen devices such as tablets and foldable phones. Google announced in a blog post Wednesday that the version, codenamed Android 12L, will be released early next year. Google stated in the article that Android 12L will bring enhancements to the user experience on large displays in “notifications, fast settings, lock screen, overview, home screen, and more.” According to Google, the update will also boost multitasking with a new task bar that will make it easier to switch apps and use split screen mode. It will also provide “visual and stability enhancements” so that apps seem better by default on larger displays, according to the company.
