Google is working on a desktop mode for Android 12. In recent weeks Android 12 has been in the news for the launch of the first developer versions that Google has allowed any user with a Pixel to test.
We already had it with the DP1, even in the video, and just yesterday we told you about the new features that arrived in the Developer Preview 2.
Now we learn another function that will arrive in Android 12, although it seems that it will be limited to devices with large screens.
Although convergence between devices has not arrived in the way we expected, using the cell phone as the brain and screens and peripherals as complements, brands such as Huawei or Samsung have already implemented a desktop mode in their phones.
The latest to join the idea is Motorola and it seems that Google does not want to be less. It has been Mishaal Rahman from XDA-Developers who has shown it on his Twitter account. As you can see, the images show an icon bar at the bottom that allows you to switch from one application to another as you would on a macOS or Windows computer, for example.

In the video he has recorded it is seen in motion, although for now, it is a function that is not fully operational. This interface would allow much more comfortable use of an Android device with a mouse, not being necessary to use the control buttons or navigation gestures.
