As reported by XDA Developers, the Google Android Developer Summit announced last week that they were working on installing a mobile operating system with the so-called "multiple reset" feature. Thus, multiple applications can not only be shown adjacent to one another, but actually work in parallel.
Although apps may already appear side by side, as several major releases for Android, all other windows stay suspended, except for the currently active window. Obviously, Google already allows multiple applications to run in parallel, but it depends on the particular device manufacturer, regardless of whether it also uses it in its version of Android. With Android Q, the appropriate support is compulsory.
At the moment, both the device manufacturer and app developers should be allowed to run multiple apps at the same time. This is necessary because Android 9.0 Pie is already done, and some apps may have limitations related to the lack of performance of the host platform and display problems.
Though the new Multi-Resume feature brings multi-tasking benefits, for example, devices with folding displays, such as devices with very large displays or high pixel density, could already benefit from the use of applications in split screen displays. Operation used.
In this case, with the new features of the smartphone shape and the multi-reset function, Android is also approaching Microsoft Windows. The extent to which the theoretical possibility of a "real" multi-window operation with Android may also lead to greater productivity in practice is still visible.
