Although there are several models of Android tablets on the market, the sales statistics of these tablets against the iPad are not significant at all. There are several reasons for this problem, but Google's lack of attention to tablets and large screens in general, has played an important role in reducing the popularity of Android tablets. To solve this problem, Google has now unveiled Android 12L, which specifically targets clamshell phones, tablets and Chromebooks.
Android 12L has features that enhance the gadget experience. It should be noted that this is not a new version of Android and only adds features to Android 12. But Google has chosen a different name to show the importance of this update.
Google has released the first preview version of Android 12L developers, and a release for the Lenovo P12 Pro tablet will be released soon. Eventually preview versions of Android 12L will be available for pixel phones as well, but since most of the new features are only shown on large screens, these versions are only useful for developers.
Android Features strong> 1212
Simply put, Android 12L user experience Improves the use of large screens. Among the changes, we can mention the placement of the notifications panel and the quick settings section in two columns on displays based on pixel density of 600 or higher. In addition, as you can see in the GIF file at the top of this paragraph, in Android 12L it is easier to use two applications simultaneously.
At the bottom of the user interface there is a taskbar that if used Appears from clamshell phones and tablets. In this task, the icons of different applications are placed, for example, if you need to use two applications at the same time, just drag the desired icon to the left or right of the screen and release.
Google designed Android 12L in this way Even if the developers did not optimize their apps for large screens, the apps would be a better experience than ever before.
According to Google, Android 12L will be released in early 2022. Finally, we need to see if Google's move will increase sales of Android clamshell phones and tablets.
