How To Use Split Screen View And Multi Window On Nexus 5X
The great thing about the Nexus 5X is the ability to view apps in “Split Screen View” and Multi Window Mode. This makes it possible for users to have two apps open and running at the same time. Before you can use Split Screen and Multi Window on the Nexus 5X, you have to enable it in the settings menu.
Below we’ll teach you how to first enable Split Screen View and Multi Window Mode and then how to start using these features on the Nexus 5X.
Enable Multi Window mode on Nexus 5X
You may need to enable Multi Window in the Settings menu in order to use the feature. Follow the insturctions below:
- Turn on the Nexus 5X
- Go to the Settings menu
- Go to the Multi window under Device
- In the the top right corner of the screen, switch the toggle Multi window to On
- Select if you want the content in Multi Window mode by default by checking the box next to Open in multi window view
After you have enabled Multi Window Mode and Split Screen View on the Nexus 5X, check to see that you have a grey semi or half circle on the screen. This half circle or semi circle on the Nexus 5X screen means that you have enabled the settings and you’re ready to start using the Split Screen Mode. To start using these features, you need to tap the semicircle with your finger to bring multi window to the top.
After you have done this, drag the icons from the menu to the window you want it to open in. A great feature on the Nexus 5X is the ability to resize the window by pressing and holding the circle in the middle of the screen and placing it to the new location you want it to go.
