How to use Split-screen Mode and Floating Window on Huawei Mate Xs with EMUI 10

Published

on


Huawei Mate Xs comes with a large 8-inch widescreen tablet size display that can transform into a smartphone while folded. To make use of this big screen, Huawei also installed some new creative features such as – Split-screen mode and floating windows.

The Multi-Window allows for two apps to be displayed side by side and interact with each other. Text, images, and documents can be transferred as easily as dragging and dropping the content from one app to the other.

You can even open one app in 2 split windows to easily manage different tasks at the same time with the Huawei App multiplier. Also, there is an ingeniously designed Dock to incorporate your favorite apps in a shortcut menu so you can activate a floating window for quick action. Never waste time switching Apps.

A dock located at the bottom of the screen provides a space for users to assign apps for quick launch. When two apps are open concurrently, users may launch a third app using the Floating Window feature, which can be used to take care of small tasks such as responding to text messages without exiting the current apps.
