Draw Over Android Apps

Have you ever wanted to place apps onto other apps without any consequences on your Android device? You might not know it, but your Android device has a special configuration that allows you to do just that! Here’s how:

Step 1: Open the settings of your Android device and locate the “Apps” section. You’ll see a list of apps, but we don’t need that. Instead, tap on the “More” section, which can be found at the top corner of the screen as three dots. Then, select “Configure apps.”

Step 2: Inside this section, look for “Draw over apps.” Note that this option might be located in a sub-menu, such as “Special access” or “Advanced,” depending on your device model.

It’s important to note that the algorithm for drawing over other apps can differ depending on the Android device model. For instance, on some models, such as Windows phones, you’ll need special Java apps. 

However, you can find templates online to help you with programming the code, which can turn this into a switch on/off feature for your convenience.
