- When in an app you want to use in split screen, touch and hold the Recents button. Notice it splits in two, indicating you're in split screen mode. Half of the screen will feature the app you are currently using, while the other will show a list of recently used apps. The apps are scrollable just like the normal multitasking pane. If the app you want to use isn't displayed in the multitasking window, touch the home button, and you'll be taken to the home screen. You'll notice the status bar turns red, which shows you're selecting an app to run in split screen mode.
- You can drag the horizontal line that splits the apps to resize each pane.
- To exit split screen mode touch and hold the Recents button. You’ll then return to normal and see the top app (or the one on the left if you’re in landscape mode) fill the screen.
- You'll need to press the Recents button, and you'll then see the split screen icon shown next to the cross. Hit this, and you'll see an animation pushing the app to the top half of the screen with a list of other open apps or to choose from.
- To use one of the other apps in the list that supports split screen, tap it and you'll see it fly to the available space in the other half of the screen.
- Samsung offers some more functions within the split screen mode with a popup that displays on the horizontal line where the apps split. There are icons to switch the top and bottom app, activate picture in picture, close the split screen mode, and also a smart selection that will pin whatever you select to the top of the screen.
- You can also drag the horizontal line that splits the apps to resize each pane.
