Last Update date : Feb 09. 2021

This feature lets you alternate between apps, adjust the size of the display, and copy information from one app to the other, follow the below steps to setup apps in Split Screen View. If you would like to set up an App Pair, check out our page Using App Pair on a Samsung Phone for step-by-step instructions.
