One of the major incremental upgrades on Android Nougat from the previous Android software was its split screen view. The feature allows you to split your smartphone viewfinder into two halves so that you can operate two different apps, simultaneously.

Well, the feature is fantastic no doubt! But it lacks running the same app on the split-screen. Imagine you are using your WhatsApp and you have to keep count on two chat windows at the same time obviously, the split-screen option would have been the best, but you can’t-do it because your software lacks at that front.
