Using a galaxy note 20 ultra with latest Android 11 one ui 3.1 updates

 
Does anyone know if there is a way in split window mode to be able to change the bottom app to a different app without deleting the whole dual window and starting again. I'm watching video in top app and texting in bottom app bit want to change from texting to email without closing top video... 
Can't find a way to do this if it's possible..
 
Thanks

unfortunately no. I was disappointed about the multitasking stratagy of android 11. it is not intuitive at all. What you want is in the android 10 which you cant downgrade. very sad samsung

Ok, what about this as a temporary fix. There's a feature in good lock, "Multistar" that let you drag the corner of the screen to resize the app. Open the first, resize than open the second and resize so you can tap on either to use it.
