Google brings split-screen view for Android apps on Chromebook, now available in Canary channel

Multitasking & Android apps experience is about to get better as Google recently added split-screen mode to Chrome OS Canary channel. This implies that you can actually use built-in apps side-by-side. First to spot the code change in Chrome OS repository was Chrome Story as they pointed out that the functionality was coming soon. It was only a speculation as there wasn’t enough proof until now that a report by ChromeUnboxed appeared.

To be on a safer side for Chromebook users, note that the Canary is unstable pre-alpha software, though the split-screen view is already running there, we do not advise you to try this until it’s available on other safer Chrome OS channels.

A hands-on video has been made by ChromeUnboxed, you can check it out below.
