Pressing two buttons simultaneously with the same touch

Related to this question.

I have two directional movement buttons, one to the left and one to the right. They are both next to each other in either of the bottom corners. Like so:127756-bbb.jpg
I am able to touch them on their own and both with two different fingers. I couldn’t make it work to press both with just one touch/thumb press.

Is that even possible? If so how?

If you are using UnityButtons, this will happen always, if you want that short of thing you need an event trigger, and do stuff with the states of enter on pressed

Implement long click or you can do this with swipe.
