How Do I launch two apps at the same time(app pairs) on the Samsung Galaxy Note8?

Last Update Date : Apr 06. 2018

If you regularly use two apps at the same time, you can use the Apps edge panel to launch them together so that they show in a split screen view. 

 

To use App pairs: 

1 Use your finger to slide along the screen horizontally to bring up the Edge panel handle

Are there any apps I can't use as part of an app Pair? 

 

Only apps that follow the Multi-Window format for Android Nougat can be used as part of an app pair.  You can use the same app. e.g. Samsung Internet + Samsung Internet to open to browser windows.
