    Do you want to run two applications? Check this link out! Is it possible to run multi applications at Android Things? Commented Jan 14, 2020 at 10:42
  • Where exactly is the problem with Raspberry Pi? You should better ask at android.stackexchange.com

    @Ingo, Android Things can currently run on 2 hardwares only, one of which is Raspberry Pi 3B. So, I believe, OP runs the OS on the last mentioned.

Yes, we can.

Android Things is yet Android. Although note that, in contrast to Android, Android Things does not have System UI app pre-installed, meaning no "Home screen" is available for users. So running other apps' launcher Activities would demand an extra effort (those Activities should be exported to be launched either programmatically or through adb).
