Google aims to improve Android app experience on Chromebooks

The Desktop Android Virtual Device will act like an emulator that will let developers test how their apps will behave when the window is resized, according to Android Police. It also covers how the app will work with others in multi-widow mode, how its notifications will display, and similar considerations that aren’t really a concern on smartphones or even tablets. Hopefully, this means that Android apps on Chrome OS will behave properly in the near future.

One of the most serious issues with Android applications on tablets, particularly on Chrome OS, is that they do not correctly adjust their UI and contents when the window is enlarged. This is due to the fact that developers do not have a simple method to evaluate such behaviour unless they already own a Chromebook for testing. Even so, they can only verify it once the programme has been deployed to the device, rather than while it is still in development. This is the obstacle that Android Studio’s next “Electric Eel” edition hopes to overcome by providing developers with all of the tools they need to accomplish things correctly.

Along with Android 12L, this Android Studio feature demonstrates Google’s push to get Android apps in tip-top shape for large screens, including tablets, Chrome OS, and PC modes. All these, however, still depend on developers actually putting in the work to adapt their software to use those new features. Of course, it would be in their best interests to cover as many platforms and devices as they could, especially if the use of Android apps on Chrome OS — and, soon, Windows 11 — continues to grow over the next few years.
