Android 10 is the latest Android version in the market. It has come with a lot of exciting new features and upgrades. One of which allows you to carry out multitasking in split-screen mode. Although the feature was already available in Android 9 (Pie) it had certain limitations. It was necessary that both the apps that you wish to run in split-screen needed to be open and in the recent apps section. You had to drag and drop the different apps to the top and bottom sections of the screen. However, this has changed with Android 10. To save you from getting confused, we are going to provide you with a step-wise guide to enable split-screen multitasking on Android 10.
