    I believe Android very aggressively swaps things out of memory, and just keeps a very memory efficient app bookmark to reload the app in the position you were at.

    If you want to insure an app works in the background you might want to split screen, keeping your browser open while you do something else

        It probably does! Android split screen has been built into AOSP for a very long time.

      You used to be able to just create a fixed notification and Android would never kill the app. This is not the case anymore?

          If we talking about modern Android, good to know. I used to run a launcher on a modded Samsung Galaxy Young (CyanogenMod11) that had a fixed notification option to prevent Android from killing it (the device had 512MB of RAM).

    You could use the split-screen thing to have two apps opened at the same time. Someone else also already commented that there’s a setting to allow the app unrestricted battery usage, which basically allows it to run in the background without getting killed.
