Here's a first look at Android on Microsoft's dual-screen Surface Duo

Share

Microsoft is simultaneously developing apps for the dual-screen Surface Duo Android platform, as well as the Surface Neo, a dual-screen Windows PC that will run Microsoft's upcoming Windows 10X.

An Android Emulator with a preview Surface Duo image that is integrated into Android Studio so you can test your app without a physical device.

A similar emulator for Surface Neo on Windows 10X will also be released in February, Microsoft says.

The kit includes the API or libraries that developers will need to hook into features specific to the Duo, particularly the dual-screen setup and the sensor for determining the angle of the device's hinge. The company has also highlighted different use cases, including using both the screens as an extended canvas, having two pages of a document shown at once, using the second display as a companion, or have a major part of the app on one display with details on the second.

"Your app by default will occupy a single screen", Microsoft wrote in a blog post, "but users can span the app to cover both screens when the device is in a double-portrait or double-landscape layout". As Microsoft is now only trying to get the software right before getting to the hardware, it might still take some time for the device to be fully mature. "The emulator simulates postures, gestures, hinge angle, mimicking the seam between the two screens, and more", Gallo says. Android tablet computer applications have actually been infamously poor in the past, yet Microsoft's technique suggests they'll mainly simply run on a solitary display screen fullscreen, so you can utilize them side-by-side.

Additionally, Microsoft announced new web standard proposals to enable dual-screen experiences for websites on Android and Windows 10X. That should, by default, make the experience rather convenient out of package, yet there are extra hard applications that you would certainly intend to extend throughout both display screens that will certainly call for some job to stay clear of the joint between.
