Microsoft and Samsung further expanded their partnership with new features for foldable devices like the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3. These features take advantage of the unique form factors of folding devices when using Microsoft Office, Teams, and Outlook.
For example, in Microsoft Teams on a foldable Galaxy mobile device, people can see a presentation on the top half of a screen while seeing people’s faces from the call on the bottom half. Within a Teams call, a user can open a shared Whiteboard and draw using the S Pen on supported devices.
Outlook also takes advantage of the folding displays, as it can show the contents of an email on one side while previewing emails on the other side.
Samsung’s phones support dragging and dropping content between multiple active apps as well, such as Microsoft’s Office apps.
Microsoft calls the Galaxy Z Fold 3 a “multitasking powerhouse” in its blog post discussing Microsoft’s apps and the new folding Galaxy phones. The post doesn’t specify which features work on the Galaxy Fold 3 and which work on the Galaxy Flip 3. The Galaxy Flip 3 doesn’t support the S Pen, so some features, like drawing on a Whiteboard in Teams, won’t be supported.
