Microsoft also is making new Surface Duo samples and helper functions meant to help developers to build for dual-screen devices.
Microsoft is planning a dual-screen session for C# developers at build, where officials will provide an update on the Surface Duo software developer kit as part of its planned React Native and WebPlat talks, the blog post says. Build 2020 will be an online-only event targeted at developers on May 19 and 20.
