Recently, the team at Microsoft announced the release of its newest SDK component, Foldable Navigation Component, which can be used to develop apps optimized for foldable screens. This comes as an extension of JetPack Foldable Navigation Component and is now available for foldable devices.

With this, the display will be split into two sections (physical or not) and shows two fragments, one for each display area, at once. See the FoldableLayout documentation for more information. There is also a sample available for users to test out the new navigation scenarios.

Microsoft invites user feedback that can be submitted here or through a message on Twitter at @surfaceduodev
