Split-screen now supported by Android apps in the tablet mode of Chrome OS.

Giving that Chrome OS started from the beginning as the operating system of Google, it is rapidly becoming Google’s new focus for tablets as well. In the most recent approach towards this feat, the Canary channel of the Chrome OS now gives users permission to run Android apps in split-screen whilst making use of tablet mode.

According to the reports reaching us from our sources, this was first detected by a team at ChromeUnboxed. A video was also uploaded to display this feature in action. After opening up a lot of Android apps while in tablet mode, when you press the multitask button, you will be able to see everything that is open in background. Furthermore, holding down an Android app now displays areas that have been highlighted on the right and on the left side of the screen where you can place the apps and be able to run both of them at the same time.

As soon as you have two apps running alongside each other, you have the ability to drag the black bar that keeps them apart to make one window larger whilst reducing the space occupied by the other window. It is also a process of a like manner as running two Chrome sites/apps at the same time and it gives providence for the running of Android apps in a more functional way or manner than they already are.

As it has been mentioned earlier, this feature is at the moment reserved for the Canary channel of Chrome OS. Canary is the Chrome OS’s most experimental and unstable channel, and it is not a thing that a lot of people should use on their daily Chromebooks. That being said, it is expected that this feature will expand in range to the Stable channel for all users in either Chrome OS 65 or Chrome OS 66.
