How to Run The Same App in Split Screen on Android Nougat

[Use Parallel Windows For Nougat App]

There is an app developed specifically for Android Nougat, that let’s the users run the same app in the split screen mode without rooting the device.

This is an important development, as up until now you were not able to do so, thanks to some restriction placed by Google on the software.

Some might point out, that you can easily Use Split Screen For Chrome Tabs, but it should be remembered that Chrome is a firstly a Google app.

This goes to show how Google is hogging this feature for it’s native apps, thus in turn making it impossible for third party apps to enjoy the same freedom.

Fortunately, you can still use this feature, thanks to the Parallel Windows For Nougat app, which brings this same app split screen function to most third party apps.

To use this app, follow these simple steps:

  1. Download, run and install Parallel Windows For Nougat.

  3. Click the check box next to “I Have Read And Understood”.
  4. Click on “Continue”.
  5. Toggle to enable, “Permit To Draw Over Apps”.
  6. Toggle to enable, “Enable Accessibility Service”.
  7. Select the size of the sidebar.
  8. Close the app.
  9. You will now see a sidebar on the right side of the screen.
  10. Slide the sidebar to the left to see the options.
  11. The sidebar contains three options, one for opening app drawer, second for triggering split screen mode, and third to mirror apps.
  12. Click on the app drawer to open the app you want to use.
  13. Open the sidebar again, and click on the “Mirror Apps” option.
  14. Select the app you want to mirror.
  15. The split screen view will popup, with two versions of the same app running simultaneously.
  16. This feature works with a limited number of apps.

With these simple steps, you will be able to easily use the same app in the split screen mode, for enhanced multi tasking. Have fun.
