I recently - somehow, added the messaging app to the home screen. This messaging app had a unique feature/user interface that I have not been able to replicate.  It showed a small window showing the messages and I could then enlarge it to see full screen or minimize it. In the few moments that I was playing around, I somehow deleted it. 

I cannot replicate this app again. It was almost like a widget, but the messaging app does not have a widget. I know how to put the messaging app back on my home screen. This is not what I am asking. It is the unique user interface that I cannot find how to replicate.

Thanks

Open messaging app

Tap or swipe Recents on bottom Navigation bar

messaging app will "zoom out" so you can see currently running apps - see screenshot

Next , long press on the app's icon at top middle as highlighted in other screenshot, then choose Open in Pop-up ViewScreenshot_20220121-114404_One UI Home-01_22131_1642787152.jpgScreenshot_20220121-114412_One UI Home-01_22130_1642787106.jpg
