Change in orientation behavior in Android apps


Level 4

We previously had an Android app built with version 2016.5, with the Tablet orientation set to landscape, and the Phone orientation set to portrait. With this version, my Android Google Nexus 7 displayed the browse pages in landscape. But when we rebuilt that app with version 2016.9, the Nexus 7 is seen as a phone, and displays the content in portrait. The same thing happens on a Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7 tablet and a Samsung Galaxy Tab E Lite tablet.

2 questions: 1. How can we get the app to display landscape orientation on the Android tablets but portrait on the Android phones? and 2. Will dual orientation AEM Mobil app capability be coming to Android soon like it is in iOS?
