Earlier when Google announced Android M at Google I/O 2015, multi-window mode was spotted in the earlier developer preview images released which was not seen in the final release of Android Marshmallow on devices.
It looks like a simple tweak in the build.prop file of your Xperia smartphone running Android 6.0 Marshmallow will enable Multi-Window mode on your device.
How to Enable Multi-Window mode on Xperia phone
Before proceeding make sure your Xperia device is running Android 6.0+ Marshmallow and is rooted.
Do make a backup of your current build.prop file.
- Using any root file manager navigate to system/build.prop
- Find “ro.build.type” (it must be written as re.build.type=user)
- Replace the “user” to “userdebug“
- Save and reboot
- After rebooting, go to developer settings > drawing category and then “Enable Multi-Window”.
Now you can use multi-window feature on your Xperia device.
