iPhone 8 iOS 12 split screen

I’ve always had android phones since the very first one, I currently have the Google Pixel 2xl and really like it. Well my girlfriend got a free Xs so I figured I’d give her iPhone 8+ a spin just to see how the other half live, now let me say I’m not an iPhone hater but I’m suprised by the lack of a few things that Android has had for quite some time. One thing that really gets me is that there is no split screen option that I find, I even paid $10 for an app to do it and it seems to only work for the browser. I was trying to watch the clinic UGA was running Mizzoue while answering some emails but couldn’t. So I’m I just a dumbass or is this really not an option?
