How to Multitask Easily on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 has been on the shelves for a few weeks now, and if you picked up one of the foldable models at launch, you may not have mastered the full capabilities of the device just yet.
With a large internal screen, the Z Fold 4 is one of the best phones we’ve tested in terms of performance. One of the best ways to get the most out of that big screen is to use some multitasking skills, like being able to use two (or three) apps at the same time.
It’s not immediately clear how to make this feature work, but it’s easy to master once you know how.
What you will need:
- Unlock your phone
- Open the app
- Drag the second app from the taskbar
- Add another application
Unlock your phone
First of all, unlock your Samsung Galaxy Z Fold device. In this example, we will use the phone unfolded.
Open the app
Then open the first app you want to use. I am using Spotify here.
Drag the second app from the taskbar
On the taskbar at the bottom of the screen, drag and hold the next app you want to open so that it is next to the first app. It should split the display in two by placing the two apps side by side. If an app doesn’t automatically take up half the screen, it’s incompatible.
Drag third app into action
While you can stick to two apps, you can also add one more app to the equation. Just drag the third app from the taskbar and it will take up half of the already split screen.
Not all applications are compatible with multitasking features, and this becomes apparent when they are not resized when dragged into place.
