Widgets designed for big screens are part of Google’s ongoing push for Android tablets. Google Drive and Keep are releasing the first tablet widgets.

A greater screen size “deserves more roomy widgets,” according to the business says . Today, you can open Google Drive quickly, search, upload, activate the built-in camera, and begin a new document with the Quick Actions widget. Either a strip configuration or a “x”/petal configuration is offered.

On tablets, Quick Actions is introducing a second row of shortcuts that instantly launch a blank page in the Google Docs, Slides, and Sheets applications. In comparison to the combined file/folder view, this is meant to enable quicker access.

The Google Keep widget transitions from a right rail to a type of bottom bar in the meantime. At the bottom are shortcuts for creating a checklist, voice memo, drawing, and image note; an FAB (floating action button) is utilized for text. Above it is a scrollable list of notes with a design that is remarkably similar to the widget in Gmail.

To make multitasking easier, Google will keep “optimizing your favorite Google apps on tablets.” As of right now, Google Drive or Keep have not yet received these upgrades to the Android tablet widgets.

It comes after a number of recent improvements for Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, and Slides that added drag and drop actions that function on text, photos, and files.
