In order to take full advantage of the larger display formats on these devices,
you should consider increasing your app’s maximum supported aspect ratio. To do
so, simply declare an
android.max_aspect <meta-data> element in the app’s
<meta-data android:name="android.max_aspect" android:value="ratio_float"/> ratio_float
Maximum aspect ratio your app can support, expressed as (longer dimension /
shorter dimension) in decimal form.
We recommend that you design your app to support aspect ratios of 2.1 or higher.
For this, you would add the following to the
<meta-data android:name="android.max_aspect" android:value="2.1" />
Note: if you don’t set a value, and
is not true, then the maximum aspect ratio defaults to 1.86 (roughly 16:9) and
your app will not take advantage of the extra screen space.
As more super
widescreen Android devices, like the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the LG G6, become
available, you’ll have more opportunities to display more content and create
more engaging experiences with your app.
