Multiwindow is one of the most popular functions that could come to Android for years. In fact, not only to Android, but also to iOS, since it gives us the possibility of running two or more applications at the same time, being able to have them present on the screen and use them at the same time. It is one of the novelties that has reached the latest Apple iPad Air 2, and it has been a feature present in the high-end Samsung for a few years. The trial versions of Android M already had this new integrated feature, although it was not official or final, but had to be activated, and that has not changed in Android 6.0 Marshmallow once it has reached the Nexus.
However, it is still a feature built into smartphones and tablets, and can be activated. There has been talk of different modifications in the firmware to be able to activate the Multiwindow. And one of them is remarkably simple and that is what we tell you here. You just have to add a line in the build.prop, which is the following:
“Persist.sys.debug.multi_window = true” (without quotes)
Once this is done, you just have to restart the Nexus, and it should already have this new function, although it is not a definitive function, so it does not have some errors, in addition to not having an interface with a great design yet. Users with the Nexus 7 2013 have already managed to activate this function, although users with the Nexus 5 have stated that they have not succeeded, so it may not work with all Nexus.
Don’t you know what the build.prop is? Then perhaps you should not consider making this modification. An update that will include this feature will arrive in the future, and then it will be final. However, it is very likely that it is a feature that is only present in the most advanced smartphones. For now, yes, it will continue to be necessary to resort to these modifications to have a function such as Multiwindow.
