Samsung One UI 5.1.1 Multitasking
The latest version of the user interface, One UI 5.1.1, is now available. The feature of multitasking enables users to conveniently assess the operational state of an application on the Recent Apps screen. This includes the ability to observe whether an app is running in split-screen mode, full-screen mode, or as a pop-up window. Moreover, this feature enables a seamless transition to a split screen mode with a simple action: just press the handle located at the top of the pop-up window and effortlessly drag it to the preferred side.
An alternative method is to utilize the drag functionality to move the pop-up screen to the side, effectively removing it from the current view. To restore the pop-up screen to its initial position, simply tap on it once more. Moreover, the S Pen enables users to effortlessly preview the outcome of launching a minimized app by simply hovering over its icon. This functionality bears a resemblance to the way Windows operates, where minimized apps are revealed through a mouse click.
Below you can see the complete changelog in order.
