Google uplifts Android developers, in order to update their apps for big and large screen form factors. While concurrently, the Play Store today is spotlighting TikTok’s new landscape mode for tablets.
Alternatively, at the very top of the Play Stores apps tab, a “Flip your tablet for TikTok” banner is placed. This promotes how “Landscape mode is here” on Android. At the same time, it also appears for those that don’t have viral applications’ installed on their device. Also, Google Play listings show how this acquires the form of a navigation rail on the left-hand side.
Moving ahead, the vertical short-form video reflects next with some blurring at the right and left. At last, you have a column to show full-width comments. Notably, this UI is already available on foldable. One of the finest examples is Samsung’s Galaxy Z fold, whereas tablet presence is all new today. Additionally, the app is sometimes a little stuck in portrait mode in regard to big-screen devices.
Talking about the case study that was revealed last year by Android Dev Relations showcases how the TikTok team has “also been focusing on large screen devices, including foldable.”
It is worth noting here that, every Google app comprises Android tablet UI (Update: Dual column Meet).
On the other hand, the tech firm has rolled out various large-screen updates for its first-party app in the past couple of months recently. This step will subsequently conclude with the launch of the Pixel Tablet, but we are curiously waiting on bigger apps like Gmail.
