At times you must have wondered how amazing it would be if you could work on two different apps simultaneously on your Android smartphone. It will save you a lot of effort and time that goes into switching between those two apps. You might not know that, but Android has got you a solution and we have got you a guide for that. Android gives you a very easy and convenient, in-built split-screen mode, which lets you chat with your friend, and at the same time, you can be exploring the menu of your favorite restaurant to order your favorite food. Let’s look at the guide of activating this amazing way of multitasking on your phone, which does not take more than a few taps.
To use the split-screen mode, the very first step is to click on the app switcher button. It will open all the applications you are using on your phone at the moment. In this section, all you have to do is to find the app which you want to run in the split-screen mode by sliding through all the different thumbnails of different apps on the screen. Now once you have found the app, if you tap on the app icon at the top of its thumbnail, it will open your options, where you can either look for the app information or choose your desired option “Split Screen”.
Once you tap on the “Split Screen” option, that app will slide and shift up to the top of your screen while the app switcher will keep working the same way, remaining visible on the bottom half. You can also select any other app to run in the split-screen mode the same way, or from your home screen and the app drawer. You can also adjust the size and position of the windows of both apps, and determine the space for each app on your screen.
It is important to know that not all the apps work in the split-screen mode and the only way to know it is by trying it.
If you are using a Samsung smartphone, along with some awesome unique features, it also offers you more methods of multitasking. Not only the split-screen mode, but you also get an option titled Open in Pop-up View. This view turns the app window smaller, which can be moved around and resized on the screen as needed and you can keep using all other functions of your phone. It can be accessed in the display settings of your phone.
Now you know easier ways of multitasking between your apps and using your smartphone in a more efficient way.
