8 days ago   |   By Android Headlines

With Android 9 Pie , Google has included a new feature in Developer Options. And that is “Feature Flags”. This is pretty similar to the flags that you'll find in Google Chrome.

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.
On Android 9.0, with gesture controls enabled, you swipe up from the "pill" to the top of the screen. Tap the icon of the ...
