In the last one or two years, Google has focused on optimizing tablet user interfaces. The company has been publishing tablet-optimized versions of its own apps and promoting third-party applications that have launched tablet-optimized interfaces. The latest app to be advertised by Google is TikTok, which recently launched a landscape mode for tablets.
TikTok’s Landscape Mode for Tablets
According to a report by 9To5Google, Google’s Play Store is now highlighting TikTok’s landscape mode for tablets in a banner. The banner reads “Flip your tablet for TikTok” and is compatible with foldable phones such as the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4. The video takes up over half of the screen, with the comments section located to the right, and can be minimized by clicking on the right-pointing arrow.
Navigation and Interface
The actions for TikTok videos are located on the right-hand side of the screen, with tabs for Following and For You floating at the top of the screen. There is also a maritime rail to the left of the screen, with charges for Home, Friends, Inbox, and Profile. It’s worth noting that this mode was created in collaboration with Samsung and was first launched with the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold series.
Google’s Efforts on Tablet Optimization
Google has also launched tablet-optimized versions of its apps, including Google Discover, Google Keep, Google One, and YouTube. As more and more third-party developers introduce modern designs to their apps, users can expect to see better use of the large screen of foldable tablets and phones.
This shows that Google is dedicated to providing its users with the best tablet experience possible. The company’s efforts to promote third-party apps that have launched tablet-optimized interfaces will also lead to a broader range of apps optimized for tablets, providing users with more choices and a better overall experience.
With Google’s focus on optimizing tablet user interfaces, users can expect to see more apps that take advantage of the larger screen size and provide a better overall experience. The recent launch of TikTok’s landscape mode for tablets is just one example of this, and with more third-party developers following suit, the future looks bright for tablet users.
