Use Split Screen and switch between apps on your Pixel Fold

New features for Pixel Fold allow you to efficiently multitask on your phone. Split-screen mode allows you to use two apps at a time. The Taskbar allows you to quickly switch between apps when you tap an icon in the Taskbar.

Use two apps at a time with Split Screen

You can use two apps at the same time when your phone is in split-screen mode.

Important: You can only use the drag and drop feature in Split Screen for certain apps.

  1. Unfold your Pixel Fold.
  2. Open any app.
  3. To open the Taskbar, slow-swipe up from the bottom of your screen.
  4. From the Taskbar, drag and drop a second app to one side of the screen.
  5. To stop Split Screen:
    1. Exit Split Screen: Swipe up from the bottom of your screen.
    2. Close Split Screen and only use one app: Slide the app that you want to keep open across to cover the whole screen.

Tip: You can access the same Split Screen from the recent apps screen.

Switch between apps

You can switch between apps quickly when you tap an icon in the Taskbar.

  1. To open the Taskbar, swipe up from the bottom edge of the screen.
  2. Select the app that you want to open.
    • To view apps that aren't pinned to the Taskbar, tap All apps.
  3. When a new app is selected, the Taskbar collapses automatically.

Tip: To change an app that's in the Taskbar, touch and hold the app and move it to the home screen. Learn how to edit your taskbar with our step-by-step tutorial.
