Google’s Gboard, Whereseek, and Talon for Twitter get dual-screen support for Microsoft Surface Duo


  • Surface Duo and Surface Duo 2 are getting more app support for dual screens from some recent app updates.
  • Google Gboard (Beta) now supports splitting making thumb typing easier.
  • Whereseek officially supports Surface Duo in a July 5 update
  • Talon for Twitter indirectly supports Surface Duo via a new tablet mode that splits the app into columns when spanned.

When it comes to apps optimized for dual-screen usage on Microsoft’s Surface Duo and Surface Duo 2, there aren’t that many beyond Microsoft’s own apps. Of course, the real benefit of Surface Duo is being able to run two apps side by side for multitasking, but for in-depth work, a spanned experience can be more immersive and rewarding.

A few significant apps are starting to move into support for “tablet mode” on Android, which results in them being optimized for dual screens as well. We’ve already seen Sync for Reddit (plus Infinity and Relay for Reddit) get such support, and now more are joining them.
