Android is getting more awesome day by day, In the latest version of Android Nougat, we can see tons of new feature that was only available for the computer. And as you know Nougat comes with Google Assistant, which makes Android Nougat the best Android OS. But there is one more feature that many Android users not aware of. Here am talking about Multi-Window / Split Screen in the android feature. You may find this feature also in many Samsung devices, where it only works with specific apps. But unfortunately, it is not available in an older version of android OS.
I know by installing Custom Android Nougat ROM we can do multitask in android. But not everyone likes to Install Custom ROM on their device. But If you are using a Rooted Android Device, then you can add Multi-Window / Split Screen feature to your Android Devices. And this feature will work with all Installed System apps and other apps.
If your device does not have root – access then the first root your Device, Don’t worry root doesn’t void warranty it’s a myth. There are many apps available to root Android Devices, but I suggest searching your device’s Root Method on XDA forums else you can try Kingoroot.
