Hello, Mi Fans!
On a daily basis, we all go through one universal experience: Choices! At MIUI we want to preserve your multitude of possibilities, we don't want you to force to choose between your two favorite apps and hence, following our design philosophy of multiple choices we are bringing you something new - a new feature called split screen mode! It can visually display two app windows simultaneously and can make a noticeable difference where it matters. What more could have been more perfect to visualize that experience rather not the big screen of Mi Max 2, know more about Mi Max 2's screen here.
How to Use Split Screen Mode
Drag the app in the upper corner, simple approach
Select your second app or change it from recents
Resize as you like
One press to exit
Which devices are supported?
Currently, split screen mode feature is available for Mi Max 2 on Global Beta ROM for now and is expected to be out for other devices running on MIUI 9 based on Android 7.0+.
How do I resize the visible window?
Tap and hold the black horizontal line in the middle and drag it up or down to suit your preferred size
Can I switch the first app to something else, without leaving Split Screen Mode?
No, the first app serves as a reference to the other apps. Clicking the menu button will give you choice to switch to the bottom app from the recent panel.
How do I exit from the split screen mode?
Click the menu button (first physical button) and press ‘Exit split screen mode’
I get a message saying that ‘app isn’t supported’, what should I do?
Depending on the app framework it has been built upon not all the apps will be supported for now. But, sooner or later it will be supported by their developers.
That's for now folks! We are so pumped to hear your thoughts out on this feature, let us know in the comments below or leave a feedback or suggestion in MIUI Feedback section. Any query will be welcomed at MIUI Q & A section.
