Google Troubleshooting Split-screen Mode for Pixel Series

Faced with a challenging issue, Google is working diligently to rectify a problematic functionality on its Pixel devices. This problem, specifically one that impacts split-screen mode operation, is to be addressed with an in-the-works repair, enabling users to utilize the affected feature while running dual apps simultaneously.

This much-awaited update will focus on a feature that is crucial for Pixel users. This feature, rolled out in January and since integrated into the Pixel 6 series, is now set for further refinement. Users can anticipate a host of improvements such as instant translations, improved cropping features, and sharing options.

The issue was brought to light during an investigation by Tech researcher, Mishaal Rahman, who found the forthcoming repair for Pixel’s split-screen conundrum within the Pixel Launcher app. His observations suggested the problem was exclusively affecting Pixel users, a fact further confirmed when contrasted with a non-Pixel device.

Initial hypotheses suggested that Android’s Assist API might be the underlying cause. However, further investigations dismissed this theory, indicating an interplay with other apps possibly affecting the Google app instead.

The data showed that service disruption occurred when users switched their default digital assistant from Google to another platform.

On a promising note, Google might expand the functionality of this particular feature. Users can look forward to an update that allows the cropping of screenshot sections and direct sharing with contacts. Notably, Google has reaffirmed its commitment to enhancing user experience and expands feature compatibility with more devices.
