Android is definitely the best choice when it comes to multitasking. It’s an open-source operating system that has a variety of apps for multitasking. Also, things have changed considerably after the arrival of Android 7.0, which introduced a split-screen mode.
If your smartphone is running on Android 7.0 or above, it might have the Split Screen feature. The Splitscreen view is one of Android’s most useful features, but it’s never used at its full potential. It’s because, on Android, opening apps in a split-screen view is harder.
It’s actually much easy to swipe between apps and multitask rather than opening apps in a split-screen view. However, things can become easy if you can create a shortcut to open two apps in a split-screen view. There’s an app that makes this thing possible known as Split Screen Launcher.
How to Create Shortcut to Launch Apps In Split Screen Mode
