The possibility of using two applications at the same time in our Android mobile is one of the most useful functions on certain occasions. From MIUI 9, Xiaomi users can use the split screen, which although it can be activated very easily, is not compatible with all Google Play applications. Today we are going to show you how to activate the split screen or the function known as “split screen”.
The split screen function for Xiaomi smartphones allows you to use two applications at the same time. This can be, for example, watching something on YouTube while we write an email or send photos by WhatsApp. Keep in mind that not all applications have been adopted by their respective developers to be compatible with the split screen, but knowing is as simple as activating the function itself.
How To Activate The Split Screen
In order to activate this function, the first thing that we will have to do is open the two applications that we want to have in a split screen. Once opened we will open the multitasking to see the summary of the apps that we have open. Once done, we will slide to the first app that we want to open in a split screen. When you touch the icon of the app, the option will appear. If it does not appear it means that the app does not support this mode. Once we have touched on the icon of the app we will see the option “split screen”. Now we will have to choose the second application and do exactly the same.
Now we can see a split screen in which the two applications are shown. Just touch on the top or bottom to interact with the app you want. It is also possible to go to the desktop without the need for this mode terminal since the background music of a Youtube video can continue to be heard in the background. To end the split screen mode we tend to click on the square icon divided at the bottom of the screen.
If you are from users who have never tried this option, it will be very useful when you do not want to lose your eye on any application, but in turn, we need to focus on something else. Useful if we are watching a video and we want to surf at the same time, or if we are talking about an application such as WhatsApp or Telegram while controlling the process of some installation.
