Google has came with many new features in Android v7.0 Nougat OS. One of those feature Google came up with is Resizing Feature.

With This feature you can resize any application windows in your desired size. The problem is that it requires developers to enable the feature before it’ll work, making some (many!) apps incompatible right. But like always with Android, there’s a workaround. Best of all, it’s easy peasy.

1. First of all, you have to enable Developer Options.

4. Restart Phone.

Once “Force activities to be resizable” option is enabled, restart your android phone, before you actually start using it.

When that’s finished, go ahead and give it a whirl. Apps that formerly wouldn’t work with split-screen mode should now work fine for the most part.

Just keep in mind that the results can still be buggy here— after all, you are forcing an app do something it isn’t supposed to do. However, Most of the time,  it works quite well.

This is how split screen multitasking get done on Android.
