Aside from the hardware challenges Samsung faced when developing the Galaxy Fold, the tech giant also had to think about the user experience and how the software will get along with the new form factor. Well, the Korean tech giant says it began development way back in April 2018 and collaborated with Google, other app partners and Android developers.

Samsung has let developers test their apps on the Galaxy Fold before release

Right after the introduction of the Infinity Flex Display at SDC 2018, Samsung and Google set up test labs in several key cities across the globe and invited partners and developers to test out their apps on the foldable phone. And with the new Android 10, Google promises further optimizations to the foldable form factor.

With Android 10, we can expect improved resizable activities, multi-resume feature and Android Emulator to support multiple-display switching.

Some of the specially optimized apps for the Galaxy Fold include Amazon Prime Video, App in the Air, Facebook, iHeartMedia, Microsoft apps, Spotify, Twitter, VSCO.

Samsung is paving the way for future foldable devices so that the most commonly used apps behave well on the new flexible OLEDs.
