The Multi-window feature is nothing new to Samsung devices (Recall that Samsung first implemented the multi-window feature before Google integrated it into Android Nougat). However, the Note 8 makes it easier to repeatedly use two apps at the same time. How?
By using the App Pair feature.

With this, you can pick two applications, for example, the YouTube and Message apps, and then convert these apps to a shortcut so that when you tap on the shortcut, both apps are automatically opened in multi-window mode.
In other words, App Pair lets users build pre-combined pairs of apps that open together in a split screen mode.
MY PERFECT PAIRS?
Personally, I have a set of app combinations that seem to work for me, and like I said, all I have to do is to click on the shortcut to launch these apps in multi-window mode:
- YouTube and WhatsApp: Majorly because nothing beats watching your favorite videos on YouTube while chatting with your friends on WhatsApp.
- Google Translate + Google Maps: I have found that this combination comes in handy when I am in a non-English speaking country,
- Skype and Samsung Note: I can have a video chat with a colleague and take notes on my device using the S-Pen.
- Samsung Internet and YouTube: For those times when I need to google something while watching a YouTube video

There are a couple of others, but these are my favorites for now. So, over to you, what is your idea of the best app pairs?
