Is it possible to open more than one app using a bixby routine, and to push it further open them in split screen mode?

What I'm trying to do is open my shopping list and supermarket scanning app when I arrive there, I can pair the 2 apps on the edge panel but can't see them in the app list in bixby routines.  If not is there an alternative that will allow this?

I have also been looking at finding a solution for this . I would like it to open up a split screen of Zap-Map charging stations and Spotify when connecting to my electric car bluetooth.

 

I have been in contact with Samsung via Twitter DMs and they have pointed me to the Community pages.

I think I've managed it, these are the steps I did to achieve this:

 

Create a new routine 

On the if screen select a place, when I arrive

On the then screen go down to run quick command

Set up a new quick command

Instruction 1 open app (in my case to do)

Instruction 2 split screen app 2 (in my case smart shop)

 

Verify by pressing run, the first app opens full screen but when the second command runs it opens the second app and splits the 2

 

I won't know how automated it is until I next go shopping on Friday but see no reason why this shouldn't work

Great help.  Thanks.  I was trying to do it with a Bixby Routine.

Hi! This was immensely helpful. I'm trying to do a similar thing when I get in the car, I want Google Maps and Google Podcasts to launch automatically. Your steps work perfectly HOWEVER they always open one on top of the other (stacked vertically) rather than side by side (horizontally). Any advice on how to get them to launch side by side as opposed to vertically? I've tried changing my quick command to tell it to open side by side but have had no luck thus far.
