I always love finding a new hack on my Android, and this one is exceptionally helpful. There is a way for you to use more than one app at any given time on your Android by creating a split screen. I’m going to show you how easy it is to do it.
What are some benefits of having a split screen on my Android?
The best benefit of having a split screen on your Android is that you can complete multiple tasks at one time on one screen rather than having to flip back and forth between apps. This is certainly an advantage that Android owners have, as it is not a feature that is offered on Apple devices.
Note: Using the split screen feature on your Android is only available for Android 7 models or later. If you have an older model, you will need to upgrade to have this feature. Also, settings may vary depending on your Android phone’s manufacturer.
