Samsung Galaxy Fold: hundreds of apps supported at launch, thanks to Google

Galaxy A50s

Samsung has certainly worked well to adapt its apps to the device, but what happens when a third-party developed app is launched without taking into account the specificities of this new category of smartphone?

Samsung is close to re-launching its first foldable smartphone in the revised Galaxy Fold in the coming weeks, and now news is breaking that the company worked with Google on foldable apps for the Galaxy Fold.

Apps mentioned in particular include Spotify, Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter, Amazon Prime Video, VSCO and more.

South Korea based smartphone manufacturer Samsung recently unveiled its A series smartphones Galaxy A50s and Galaxy A30s. In other words: Samsung is not only confident in the launch of the hardware, they're ready to roll with the essential software users want - right now!

Samsung today confirmed a few popular apps that will be available from the Google Play Store when the Galaxy Fold goes on sale. That includes not just the underlying Android platform but also apps like Maps and YouTube.

The unique design of the Galaxy Fold necessitates app optimization.

The Galaxy A50s features a 6.4-inch FHD+ Infinity-U Super AMOLED display (1080*2340 resolution) found on its predecessor.

Just in case it wasn't already clear how far OnePlus has come in an incredibly short window of time, the company's exceptionally well-reviewed 7 Pro got the highest overall scores in this in-depth new OpenSignal report, ahead of the LG V35 ThinQ and G8 ThinQ.

Additionally, with Android 10, Google added code to the operating system to natively support foldable devices.

Samsung notes that for apps that haven't been optimized for the Galaxy Fold, there's the device's built-in "app-optimizing technology", which resizes an app's content and screen ratio to suit both the large display and folded-state display.
