With One UI 4.1.1, Galaxy Z Fold 4 inherits Android 12L’s great taskbar, which will also be available for Fold 3.

With a revised focus on tablets and foldable devices, Google introduced Android 12L earlier this year, and it is now getting the chance to properly show off that strength. The excellent taskbar of Android 12L is pre-installed on the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and will soon be available on the Galaxy Z Fold 3.

The Galaxy Z Fold 4 is a refined gadget that includes upgrades to the software as well as bigger displays and improved cameras.

One example is the taskbar’s adoption, which Google introduced in Android 12L. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 will be Samsung’s first device to feature the Android 12L taskbar, and the execution is comparable to Android 12L previews. The taskbar, as it is known in Samsung, displays next to the standard navigation buttons or gestures and pulls recent apps as well as the bottom row of your homescreen. When you access the homescreen, the Taskbar vanishes; when you launch any apps, it reappear.

You may multitask by dragging programs from the Taskbar to either side of the screen when it’s visible. You may switch between them quickly and easily by tapping on one of the app’s icons. A shortcut is also available to access the app drawer.

It’s also important to remember that Samsung offered a feature very similar to this on the Galaxy Z Fold 3 last year, but it was affixed to the side of the screen and required some awkward software adjustments. We have only had a short amount of time to play with new version, but it already feels much better.

Samsung goes on to say:

The new Taskbar offers access to your favorite and most recent apps and has a layout similar to your PC. New swipe motions make multitasking easier to understand. Split your screen in half or instantly switch full-screen apps to pop-up windows for extra multitasking options.

It should be noted that the new swipe motions that Samsung is referring to are located under the Labs area and are not turned on by default. On the home screen, the Taskbar should be turned on by default.

Samsung confirmed to 9to5Google that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will ultimately receive One UI 4.1.1 and the Android 12L taskbar, however no specific date was given. It seems sense that the Galaxy Z Fold 2 and all other large-screen Samsung devices running One UI 4.1.1 and up will experience the same shift.
