Initiating a split-screen in Android 9.0 is not as easy as pie

But if there is one thing that has Android owners steamed, it's the new roundabout way to initiate the split-screen on Android 9.0. The old method simply required that the user long-press on the square on the bottom right of the phone. Once that was accomplished, the second app to view could be selected.
