Samsung One UI 4.1: Multi window, and expectations from the upcoming UI!

Published

Multi Window

Samsung One UI 4.1  multi-window lets you run two applications at the same time in the split-screen view and at the same time, you can run the multiple apps in a pop-up view.

Now expectations are growing from the upcoming One UI 5 multi-window to have some more plus features which could offer the smartphone user some more increased functionality.

One UI 5 is going to come any time but still see the same multi-window function that has been introduced at the time of One UI 1.5, and since then Samsung has just done a few customizations to its multiwindow functionality and interface.

Expectations from the upcoming multi-window?

I am bored, seeing the same interface for a year, though the split-screen and pop-up are very useful features, users have lots of expectations from them. Let us discuss some of them.

Support for all applications, Samsung users are complaining that all the applications do not support the split-screen or pop-up view. So I think the company should work on increasing app support.

Every time we need to choose the application for the split-screen or pop-up view, it would be even better if the multiwindow user interface facilitates the opening of all the recent windows in split or popup mode.

According to me, the split-screen mode should be scalable, which could facilitate the user to scroll, drag, and extend the split-screen view as needed by the smartphone user. At present UI function is not fully scalable.

It would be a lot better if we can keep the recent unused app at the top or side of the screen and can close or open them with one touch or swipe. Samsung needs to work more on multi-window touch gestures, at times the repetitive actions irritate a lot and really feel annoying. Let us see whether the future One UI 5 could fulfill the user expectations or not.

Samsung One UI 4.1, Split-screen view, here is how to launch apps from the Edge panel?

Published

on

Samsung One UI 4.1 Split screen is the burning topic for debate on online platforms these days. It would be better if this split-screen facilitates viewing not only two but three to four applications on the screen at an instant in a single time.

Split screen

How to launch the Split screen view?

  • First, tap on the recent button to open the list of recently used apps
  • Then swipe left or right, tap on the app’s icon, and then tap Open in the split-screen view
  • On the app list, you can select another app to launch.

How to launch the apps from the edge panel?

  • While you are on the current working application, drag the edge panel handle towards the center of the screen.
  • Tap and hold an app, drag it to the left, and then drop it where Drop here to open appears. By doing this your selected app will launch in a split-screen view.

You are eligible to launch an application in the split-screen view just by tapping it once. Tap on the three horizontal dots and then tap on the option Open in split-screen. If you click on show recent apps, switch to activate them, and now you are ready to launch recently used apps in the split-screen view from the Edge panel.

How to add app pairs?

Add frequently used apps to the Edge panel to launch them together, in a split-screen view with a single tap. This seems to be an extraordinary work just for nothing.

  • In the split-screen view, tap the circles between the app windows.
  • Tap on Plus Sign, and the apps that you are using in the split-screen view will be saved on the Edge panel as an app pair.

However, to adjust the window size you can drag the circles between the app window. When you drag the circle between the window to the app screen the window will be maximized. The same is the case with the pop-up view.
