With new Android products having increasing screen resolution and CPU performance the single application and single window model feels insufficient and limiting. New Android products with large screen such as tablets, TVs and 2-in-1s could provide users with extended multiwindow and multi-application experiences without having to modify off the shelf applications. In our presentation we present a multiwindow solution for Android and detail the architecture and design decisions and share some our guesses for future support of Multiwindow natively in Android. The solution will be demonstrated live in multiple products and architectures, while showcasing the performance without platform specific or proprietary acceleration. Furthermore we will be announcing during the talk the availability of this solution as an open source project.
The described solution will be open sourced and announced during Android Builders Summit, and made available to the ecosystem with instructions for integration with AOSP releases, facilitating creation of rom images for AOSP supported devices.
