As time passes, the Android comes into increasingly new areas that neither its founders had imagined to see. From smartwatches to smart TVs and from decoders to folding mobiles, the operating system has greatly expanded its presence. And now the Google, you're getting into another new field: Android desktop from the phone.
The idea of desktop mode is nothing new, as both Samsung and Huawei have been working for a long time. But other developers have also tried to upgrade Android in a desktop format from time to time, and now it seems that Google has turned in that direction.
A hidden desktop feature was detected in Android Q, but Google did not say anything about it, not even Google I / O 2019. The good news though is that he has developed it actively.
Desktop mode soon became the focus of the talks between developers, for folding, multi-screen, and large-screen devices. Some of the contracts that developers need to know when preparing their applications to work properly on such non-conventional screens are analyzed. Google finally gives developers the tools to formally make these features a part of the user experience.
Of course, the fact that Google gives them the API does not mean that developers will "snap" right away. Given how specialized desktop features are in Samsung and Huawei, it will take a while before becoming the rule for all applications. Maybe by then there is no longer a need for custom UIs like Samsung DeX and all Android phones can be transformed into true computers in your pockets.
