    Hi i was wondering why the Samsung J5 Prime can't support the multiwindow function that was supposedly available for marshmallow version and up. When I compared it to the Nokia 3 (spec wise) Nokia 3 supports it besides having lower hardware or software capabilities (fingerprint and such). So why does the J5 Prime not have it? I can't seem to find it under developers option as well. Is it really impossible?

    Hi there. I find the split screen feature thing incredibly useful on my Motorola, especially while driving and navigating with a speedo or other app; but it only arrived with Nougat / 7.0. If you are still on Marshmallow it won't be available.

    I think 7.0 only rolled out on a few versions of the SM-G570F. While it's normally enabled by long pressing the recent apps button, I think many Samsung's use it to enhance a built - in multi windows feature further. I haven't played with a Samsung for a while.
