Google says, “Android 12L is a special feature that makes Android 12 better on the big screen.” The L-branded Android 12 OS has optimized and polished the system interface for large screen devices. The new UI changes will initially affect devices with a screen size of more than 600 dp, with new two-column notification backlighting, lock screens, and other system pages appearing on larger displays. Here is a screenshot with a new tint screenshot of Android 12L notifications.

Android 12L offers new multitasking capabilities, it has a new taskbar that allows users to easily drag and drop a second app to enter split screen mode, not only that, users can easily hide the taskbar whenever they want with a simple gesture.

The next major feature of Android 12 OS with a larger screen is enhanced application compatibility with improved visual enhancement and stability. If the app is not optimized for a larger screen, it will optimize the app for a larger display. These are some of the key strengths of the upcoming Android 12L, and we expect some more features to come with the new OS.

Android 12L Developer Preview has become official for developers for testing purposes. Developers can test and optimize their apps using the Android 12L emulator.
