TL;DR

  • You can now install the app from the Google Play Store to add Dynamic Island to your Android phones.
  • The app is called dynamicSpot and it gives you several options to customize your floating island.
  • It’s free to download, but there’s also a Pro version that unlocks more features.

Ever since Apple released the iPhone 14 Pro models with Dynamic Island to hide the front camera info notch, developers have been busy trying to emulate this feature on Android phones. The MIUI developer has previously managed to get Xiaomi Dynamic Island working phones. Realme is also asking users if they want this feature. But if you’re itching to try out Dynamic Island on your Android device, you can now do so thanks to an app called dynamicSpot by Jawomo (h/t XDA Developers).

The multitasking tool lets you access the latest notifications or phone status changes via a floating island at the top of the screen. Once configured, dynamicSpot surrounds your Android phone’s front camera by default, but you can also change the position of the floating bar to your liking. This can be useful for those with large phones.

We installed dynamicSpot on a Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra and it worked as expected. Yes, the animation isn’t as fluid as Apple’s, but there are plenty of customization options that let you choose which notifications you can see, resize the island, and show two toast notifications at once when they enter. There is a $4.99 pro option that unlocks more features and functionality, like being able to see dynamicSpot on your lock screen.

Keep in mind that you give the app full control over access when you set it up. This means that the app can access and control everything on your phone’s screen. It can also track your interactions with apps or hardware sensors and interact with apps on your behalf. The developers claim that they do not collect user data and do not share your information with third parties.

So if you want to experience Apple’s Dynamic Island on your Android device, give it a try. Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
