Android and all its derivations (Wear OS and Android TV, just to name a few) share many of their characteristics, although in some cases they havedeleted or hidden.One of the hidden features in Android TV is thesplit screenI knew that with NVIDIA Shield TV and a keyboard can re-enable this function?
To activate the split screen, all you have to do is compose thesekeyboard combinations(They have been tested on American and French keyboards):
- Windows + ^(or CMD + ^ for Mac keyboards) to move the current application to the left side, while the previous one will move to the right
- Windows + $(or CMD + $ for Mac keyboards) to move the current application to the right side, while the previous one will move to the left
It is a great feature but with a limitation
If you don't have an NVIDIA Shield TV but want to see what the result is, all you have to do is watch thevideo tocontinuation
Unfortunately, there is alimitation: NVIDIA Shield TV manages to identifyonly two keys at a time, so you will have to use commands that allow you to get $ and ^ without using the “Shift” key (as in Spanish design).
If you expected to use the same technique withother Android TV devices, we havebad news: in XDA they tested it in a Xiaomi Mi Box S without success. But try it, you can have more luck. And if it works, you can let us know in the comments. In any case, it is avery useful feature , especially given the large space available for a television.
