When samsung annouced they will be working with app developers to optimize for z fold 3 at the unpacked event. Will the Z fold 2 5G get these same optimizations or just the 3? Thanks

Since 2018, Samsung has worked closely with the top app developers around the world to create fully optimized apps for the foldable form factor. As of August 2021, we are proud to share that nearly half of the top 100 apps are optimized for foldables. New apps include Disney+, YouTube, Whatsapp, Hulu, Spotify, Google Chrome, Gmail, and Microsoft teams, among others.

I'm not sure, tbh I don't think samsung has said anything about it yet. I'm hopeful some of the large screen optimizations will also come to their tablets. They've been really good with updates lately so finger crossed!

This is really key for the Fold.  Given the high price of the Fold, smaller developers won't be able to commit the time to customizing for a small number of customers, which is a shame.  I didn't get a Fold 2, so I'm curious to see how my favorite apps work when I get the 3.  One thing this will do is get more people using Samsung's apps, like calendar, because they'll optimize it for the Fold.  Did Google optimize any of their apps for the Fold 2?

We don't have a full list of which apps are optimized, but based on what I've gathered from our new launch team, I'm almost sure most of the top used apps will be optimized, but this is one of those things that we will have to wait to see first hand once the phone is released. I'm sure if Facebook and snap chat aren't a part of this already because of how popular they are they should follow suit.
