Google has announced its first Android 12L beta, and the update to its operating system is supposed to bring a better tablet and a better foldable phone experience.

While the first beta is still largely developer dependent, this could be a chance to see what Google is doing as well as the developer preview.

In Android 12L, Google has added a two-column layout for large screen devices. You will receive more information immediately. For example, you can view settings and quick notifications side by side.

The company is also committed to improving multitasking. This is a great way to pull apps out of the system tray to split screen mode (you can also use it to quickly switch between apps).

The taskbar works like the taskbar on a Windows PC. Displays icons of your favorite apps at the bottom of the screen for quick access.

In the developer preview, the company said that if you own a Lenovo Tab P12 Pro, you should be able to run the beta on a physical device with a large screen, although the beta won't be available until later.

If you don't have to wait or don't want to wait, you can also run the Android 12L beta in the emulator to see what it will look like when it becomes publicly available.

The search giant also said that you can install Android 12L through supported Pixel devices. It currently lists the Pixel 3A, Pixel 3A XL, Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL, Pixel 4A, Pixel 4A (5G), Pixel 5A, and Pixel 5A. However, you cannot test the widescreen user interface.
