The smartphone industry is consistently evolving and the display has been an aspect of intense development. Presently, there are a couple of dual-display smartphones in the market. However, the problem with these devices is usually software adaptation. The latest dual-screen in the industry, LG V60 ThinQ 5G was released yesterday. This device comes with a dual-display which enables consumers to enjoy multitasking, productivity, gaming, and entertainment. In order to realize the full potential of the dual-screen capabilities in this device, developers must modify and adapt their applications. Recent reports show that the Microsoft Office App now supports Android dual-screen phones.
Microsoft Office App combines multiple apps in one
Microsoft recently released a new Office application that combines Word, Excel, and PowerPoint into one application. The new Office applications require much less storage space than using three separate applications independently. According to reports, Microsoft’s new Office application is compatible with dual-screen functionality in a couple of LG phones. For now, it supports LG V50 ThinQ, LG G8X ThinQ, as well as LG V60 ThinQ. With this support, you can open an Excel file in one screen and continue browsing with the file on the other screen. Alternatively, you can open two Word documents side by side for comparison.
Last month, Microsoft announced that the Surface Duo SDK Preview for developers is fully available. With the Surface Duo SDK Preview, developers will be able to develop new dual-screen application experiences on the Android platform.
The general idea is that this Microsoft app will also work perfectly in other Android dual-screen devices. Users of other Android dual-display devices may want to try out this new Microsoft app and give us feedback. Personally, I think this is a cool feature for dual-display Android devices.
