Never Enough Screens - Multiple Displays in Android

Nick Dedenbach

Engineering Manager


As Android makes its way into more devices with "non-traditional" display configurations, such as foldable devices and multi-display automotive infotainment systems, the APIs that enable experiences that leverage this new visual real estate have become all the more important.

This talk will be a brief overview of the Android APIs that allow for multi-display and multi-window experiences and what a developer needs to keep in mind when leveraging them, including:

- VirtualDisplay
- DisplayManager
- WindowManager
