Multi-tasking with apps using 3 way split screen on the Galaxy Fold

Make the most of the Galaxy Fold's main screen by opening several apps at once, using either the split screen view or pop-up view.

 

Split screen view lets you open up to three apps at the same time or you can convert up to seven apps to pop-up windows which float on top of any apps you have running in the background. You can do this in landscape or portrait.
