Google is updating more than 20 first-party apps to look good on Android tablets

Google is finally getting serious about Android tablets. With players like Xiaomi, OPPO, Vivo and Realme entering the tablet scene, it’s time for Google to do some work to improve the Android experience on big screen devices. Earlier this year, Google announced Android 12L to make Android look good on foldables and tablets. And today, the company shared how it is optimizing the Android app experience for larger tablet screens.

At Google I/O 2022, Google announced that it would be updating more than 20 Google apps to “look amazing on the big screen.” The company didn’t share an exhaustive list of apps, but YouTube Music, Google Maps, Google Photos, Play Store and Google TV are confirmed to be getting a visual makeover.
