Hey look, Dynamic Island has arrived on… Android?!?

Apple caused a lot of excitement when it introduced Dynamic Island on the new iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max handsets earlier this month (although it’s not for everyone).

The feature brings the pill-shaped cutout at the top of the screen to life, changing its appearance according to the information or controls displayed.

In a move that would surely have made Steve Jobs shake his head in dismay – and possibly call Apple’s top lawyer – Dynamic Island has now landed on… Android!

No, it is not part of a recent Google mobile OS update. Instead, a mischievous developer brought it to Android via an app called dynamicSpot that targets the snip that comes with many Android devices.

A video (below) shared by Jawomo, creator of dynamicSpot, shows an early version of the app in action.

Like Apple’s Dynamic Island, dynamicSpot works as a multitasking tool, giving you a quick way to access recent notifications or phone status changes, among other things.

In keeping with the theme of bringing up all the features of Apple’s Dynamic Island, you can also tap on the spot to open the displayed app and long-press it for a few seconds to expand it and see more details.

Jawomo notes that while the iPhone’s Dynamic Island is not customizable, dynamicSpot It isexplaining: “You can change the interaction settings, select when to show or hide the popup or which apps should appear.”

The developer adds, “Because dynamicSpot uses Android’s notification system, it is compatible with almost all apps like message notification, timer apps, and even music apps.”

You can also change the location of the app’s location, an important feature as Android phone makers don’t all put the camera cutout in the center of the screen.

Whether Android users go to dynamicSpot remains to be seen. It might be fun to try, but as it’s in the early stages of development, there can be bugs – and don’t expect (not yet) the smoothness and richness of Apple’s effort.

The dynamicSpot app is currently in beta and can be downloaded for free from Google Play. To get its full functionality, however, you’ll need to hand over $5.
