The LG’s swivel wing was one of the most interesting smartphones of 2020, but its unique design was held back due to poor software support. A new software update, available today for the Verizon-exclusive device, attempts to address these issues by adding some new dual-screen functionality.
Specifically, Droid life Reports The new update makes sending apps to and from the smaller display to the main display a lot easier (a process that previously encountered some complicated menu issues). With the new update, there is now a submit button that is used to transfer apps from one display to the other, along with a restart button to restart apps that are going badly. You can also use a third finger gesture to perform a similar task. Finally, LG added app name to the homescreen when the phone is opened so that it more closely resembles the standard Android homescreen.
LG also fixed one of the biggest issues with the second display, adding media controls for all apps to the second display when viewing it (rather than just a handful of select apps like YouTube). Now apps like Netflix offer similar functionality.
The update includes a few more additional features, including the ability to automatically scan QR codes in the camera app, a new background image, a matching 5G icon and a security patch for November.
If you have an LG Wing, you can now install the update by checking for a software update in the Settings app.
