What is Android 12L and what does it signify for users are explained.

Android 12L

At its annual Android Developer Summit, Google released Android 12L, an improved version of its mobile OS (Android 12). With the release of Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, Android 12 has become stable. And this is the latest developer preview of the new OS. This version includes minor changes and, as Google stated, is a ‘feature drop’ for foldable, tablets, and ChromeOS devices. It will be largely available on the Android Emulator as part of Android Studio, but a beta version of the preview may be available on Pixel phones later, most likely in December. Google says, “Android 12L will be released to everyone early next year, which would be in time for the next wave of Android 12 tablets and foldable”. You can also get the 12L emulator from right now.

What’s new with the Android 12L update?

This upgrade is aimed at large-screen devices such as foldable phones and tablets. And it makes Android 12L perform well with them. The taskbar in Android 12L will allow you to move between programs rapidly as you would on a desktop computer. During split-screen mode, you’ll be able to drag an app from the taskbar to utilize it. This mode will operate regardless of whether or not the applications are resizable, according to Google.

With a revised UI, Android 12L will optimize the layout of your device’s interface to make it more flexible with a larger screen. It changes the placement of the lock screen, home screen, Quick Settings, notifications, and other important features of the phone, for example. Google has announced that smartphones with 600 density-independent pixels (DP) or more will get a new two-column layout that will take up the whole screen.

Through Activity embedding, new APIs in 12L will allow apps to present numerous activities at once. It will let you open a Google Drive folder on the left and a PDF preview on the right. On foldable, this should operate seamlessly, stacking and unstacking views as you open and close the device. Apps may also use the API to become “fold-aware,” which allows them to avoid showing content on hinges or folds and even use the components as natural separators.

Advanced letterboxing will be added by Google, which will make the apps seem better on a huge screen. It won’t replace the way you interact with your phone, but it will improve it.

Google also intends to encourage the creation of apps for bigger displays. There are new tools, APIs, and tutorials available to assist developers in creating adaptable apps that will work on any device.
