    Not sure if it's just me or some of you guys might be experiencing this problem. Ever since the Android 10 update, I can no longer double-tap the recent button to activate split-screen with the 2 most recent apps. now when I double-tap the button, all it does is turning into the split-screen logo and nothing happens. I have to single tap the recent button, go to the top right corner and choose the split-screen option to activate it. I tried resetting the device, that didn't fix the issue. very strange. o_O

    Hop into Buttons & Gestures, then Navigation bar & Gestures, then Navigation bar customization, then tap on 'Double tap action' for the Recents Button and choose 'Open/Close split screen'

    This should work perfectly fine :)

    Let me know how it goes... If it helped you out a like would be appreciated :)

    that's exactly what I did:p but the issue is still there. I just found out yesterday, the function only works when I have one app open. o_O

    What do you mean 'One App Open'?

    Do you mean nothing running in the background? Because that is really weird [e]1f602[/e]

    Split-screen is awesome. I've got a Nexus 6 and I use it every day.

    A couple months back Facebook messenger stopped supporting it and I just kinda rolled my eyes, that apps been getting worse for years and I've mostly moved to WhatsApp anyway, and there's always those 'bubbles' as a workaround.

    Then Inbox stopped supporting it...why? There's no reason I can't write an email while I've got a YouTube video playing. Then today Reddit is fun has been updated and guess what...'this app doesn't support split-screen', oh that's cool, it only did for the last 2 years, why not just scrap usability for no reason I suppose.

    Like...do app developers not want me to use their apps? Why take away usability and functionality? I watch YouTube videos while I'm scrolling Reddit, now I can't do that? Is there an app I can get to 'force' split-screen?

    I'm assuming it's being taken away because of something to do with usage statistics and getting users to focus on one app at a time, at least, I hope there's a reason. Can anyone enlighten me or feels similarly? And I know I've got an older phone running an older OS so I don't know if that's a part of it.

    I'm not sure. I hope the next software update will fix both the splitscreen and lte problem. this is my second OP7 pro already. [e]1f602[/e] the first one I got had a damaged camera housing. I think it's just bad luck for me, kept getting lemon phones. [e]1f62d[/e]

    I have the same issue! Out of the box (Android Pie) hold recent for split screen worked great, but since updating to Q, it no longer functions properly. After holding recent, the icon changes to the split screen icon, but I need to hit the back button twice for the recent menu to appear under my running app in split screen mode.

    I did notice that switching to navigation gestures then back to "back, home, recent" sometimes gets it working again, but rarely.

    You can see from the screenshot the split screen button, but one one app open.

    Glad I'm not the only one, but would really like a fix...

    after the update recently, mine seemed to just fixed itself. I'm gonna test it out for a bit and see if it's consistent.

    This is still a problem in Android 10. I can also confirm that it occurs with all 3rd party launchers and is not an issue for the stock OnePlus Launcher. See below for a video:

    A fix for this, or at least acknowledgement of the bug from OnePlus would be greatly appreciated.

    Um... you're not even holding the right thing down. The card needs to be held down, not the Recents button. The card is the app preview that you cycle through.
