Android Pie's new multitasking view now has a new way to put an app in split screen mode.

If you swipe up on the screen to view the app cards, the app's icon will show up the top of the card. Touch the icon to display app information and the button to turn on the split screen.

Emergency Lockout

If you're ever in a situation where you want to disable the fingerprint sensor or face detection on your device, Android Pie has added an optional emergency lock button.

To activate the button, go to Settings. > Security & Location > Lock Screen Settings and toggle the switch next to Show Lockdown Option .

To use the function, press and hold the button. Press until the power off or restart prompt appears. There you will find the new button Lockdown . When you tap it, your Android device locks up and requires a PIN or pattern to unlock, as well as notifications displayed on the lock screen.

Android Flags

If you're an avid Chrome user, you've probably enabled or disabled a feature via Chrome flags at some point. With Android Pie Android Flags are now one thing.

The feature is hidden in the developer options, so you need to enable it before you can build Android Flags. Enable developer options by opening Settings > System > Over the telephone then tap Build Number seven times at the bottom of the screen. [19659002] After that, developer options appear in Settings > System > Advanced . Select it and then scroll down to Debugging and select Feature flags (Poof, finally).

The current list of flags is quite limited, but "settings_bluetooth_while_driving" is especially interesting. If this option is enabled, the Bluetooth Settings page now offers an option to automatically enable Bluetooth if your phone detects that you are in a moving car. This is especially helpful for those who only use Bluetooth to connect to a car, and prefer to turn it off at other times to save battery life.
