How to activate the split screen on Huawei phones


The growth in the size of the screens has been spectacular in recent years. Virtually almost all smartphones start at 6 inches, or even almost touch 7 inches in some cases. For this reason, it makes more sense than ever to split screen for perform two actions at the same time, just as Huawei mobiles allow.

The main objective of the split screen is to be able to do two things at the same time. In this way, many users can write an email while keeping an eye on a video or even play while having a WhatsApp conversation open.

Compatible models with Huawei Split Screen

Huawei has been expanding the models, methods and applications compatible with the split screen, but it is a veteran function. Perhaps the most attractive formula is to activate the function playing with the knuckle on the screen, but can be enabled in other ways.

How the function is activated

With knuckles

As we say, not all Huawei phones support this method, although it is the most colorful of all. So far, compatibility is guaranteed in the P30 and P40 series, as well as in other older terminals such as the P9, P9 Plus, P10, P10 lite, P10 Plus, Nova, Nova Plus, Mate S, Mate 8, Mate 9 , Mate 9 Porsche Design, P20, P20 Pro, Mate 10, Mate 10 lite, Mate 10 Pro, Mate 10 Porsche Design and the Mate RS.

In order to do this we will have to open an application and keep your knuckle glued to the screen. Then you will have to draw a line in the middle. This line should be horizontal when the screen is vertical or vertical when the screen is in horizontal mode.

With the “recent” key

This is the method that works on the vast majority of Huawei phones. In order to activate it we will have to press and hold the recent apps key, when we are inside an application. In this way we can see the split screen and interact with two applications. To exit we must press and hold the new virtual key, which we will see at the bottom right of the screen.

With three fingers

In the same way that you can enable screenshots with three fingers, we can use them to enable split screen mode on our Huawei. For this we open an app and slide all three fingers up on the screen. It is important not to slide your finger up from the bottom, so that the function is activated correctly.

Smart split screen

It is one of the most useful functions of this function, and it starts automatically when we are already using it. If we receive an SMS or notification from an application when we are watching a video in full screen mode, a strip will appear on the screen that will ask us to split the screen.
