In landscape orientation, or when unfolded, the Gmail app now supports multitasking, joining others like Drive, Docs, Sheets, and Slides.
Multitasking on the Google Pixel Fold just got better
In full-screen mode, emails are displayed on the right-hand side of the screen next to the inbox sidebar, which is housed on the left.
Opening a new window beside Gmail shifts the email body to the left and hides the sidebar, making space for the new window on the right.
Google says that users can control how wide each window is by dragging the central divider handle, or they can simply opt for the standard 50:50 layout.
Improved multitasking on larger displays will help maintain Google’s position as a popular business smartphone provider.
The Pixel Fold strikes a useful balance between portability and practicality, offering all-important screen real estate to businesspeople working on the go without having to carry an extra tablet.
As well as some other Google Workspace apps, third-party developers have been building widescreen support into their apps, too. Zoom, Adobe Acrobat Reader, Dropbox, Evernote, and Todoist have all been optimized to make full use of larger displays.
Furthermore, the now-generally available Android 14 received several business-focused enhancements, including security improvements and more controls for fleet admins, among wider tweaks and improved accessibility functionalities.
