Android 13, the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system, has lost a key multitasking feature to Apple’s iOS. With the update, Android users can no longer drag and drop files between apps unless both apps are open in split-screen mode. This brings Android’s multitasking capabilities closer to that of iOS, which has surpassed Android in some areas in recent years. While Android still has more robust multitasking features in some regards, this change is likely to be a disappointment for power users who rely on multitasking heavily. It remains to be seen whether Google will bring back the previous multitasking functionality in future updates.
