I just read the question asking if Pokemon: GO! counts as active for the sake of hatching eggs when the screen is locked; the result was that it does not.

So what about if it is split screen? I'd like to do a bit of running (couch->5k style) and was planning to use the app "Run. Zombies!" to do it but it would be great to hatch eggs at the same time.

Edit: Turns out split screen is awkward to enable on my phone, so for the purpose of the question, assume I'm not using any specific method of split-screen or any specific phone. If you know it works for one method/phone, let me know! If you know it doesn't work for another method/phone... let me know that too! :)

  • Not an answer, but note that there is a speed limit on egg catching - so depending on how fast you run, it might not count.

  • Android natively hasn't Splitscreen afaik, only the custom roms from e.g. samsung provide this feature. I think it comes with Android N (7.0) and you might have it. So my question: What kind of splitscreen? Jul 11, 2016 at 20:50
  • Ahh... I'm not really sure what kind of split screen. I just switched from a Samsung phone to the Nexus 6p and thought split screen was standard for android. I never used it very often but it seemed like this would be a good time to use it. I just looked it up and it seems it needs some tinkering to make work on my phone... I'll edit the question.

  • I don't remember 100% but I think they said on the Android Central Podcast (the special episode about Pokemon GO) that Android N is not supported yet, thus split screen is likely also not supported yet.

It doesn't sadly. The 0.29.2 (today's release) supports Android Nougat, but as of the current release, it doesn't support split screen.

I'm running an LG G3 with Fulmics 4.2. PoGO works fine in split screen mode, although it was designed to run in portrait mode, so I like to expand it (shrinking the other app) when capturing a Pokemon.
