Gmail’s Enhanced UI on Android: Better Multitasking on Foldable Devices

Google Improves Gmail for Foldable Screens with Enhanced Multitasking

In full-screen mode, emails are displayed on the right side of the screen alongside the inbox sidebar, which is positioned on the left. When opening a new window alongside Gmail, the email body shifts to the left, temporarily hiding the sidebar to make room for the new window on the right.

Google’s update empowers users to control the width of each window by dragging the central divider handle. Alternatively, they can stick with the standard 50:50 layout.

This improved multitasking experience, especially on larger displays, further cements Google’s position as a preferred choice for business smartphone users. Devices like the Pixel Fold strike a practical balance between portability and screen real estate, offering business professionals the convenience of on-the-go work without the need for an additional tablet.
