As XDA-Developers reports, Google announced last week at the Android Developer Summit that it is working to install the mobile operating system with the so-called "multi-resume" feature. Thus, many applications can not be displayed next to each other but operate in parallel.
Although apps can be shown next to each other, because several important versions of Android, all other windows remain in a broken state, except for the currently active window. It seems that Google already allows multiple applications to run, but it depends on the device manufacturer, if it also uses it in the Android version used for its products. With Android "Q", the appropriate support is required.
Currently, both a device manufacturer and application developers must be able to operate multiple multiple applications in parallel. Needed, this is because Android 9.0 "Pie" is already done and there may also be limitations due to the lack of performance of the host platform and display issues for certain applications.
Although the new "Multi-Resume" feature benefits from multitasking, especially on devices with collapsible displays, devices with very large displays or high pixel density, for example, could already benefit from using apps in split posters, for example. Operation used.
With the new form factors for smartphones and the multi-rewrite feature, Android is also coming closer to Microsoft Windows in this case. To what extent is it possible to see the practical "real" multi-window operation in Android, which can also lead to increased productivity in practice.
