Chrome OS Might Support Split Screen for Android Apps in Future

In an attempt to push Chrome OS to different products, Google continues to add new features to the operating system. The search engine giant is expected to ship out tablet form factors in the coming months which means Google will be required to add more features to bring decent Android app experience on Chrome-OS powered devices. Interestingly, Chrome OS’ latest Canary build now contains split screen feature.

In case you didn’t know, Canary build is a newly complied version of a software which hasn’t been properly tested. While everyone doesn’t use this version, it provides a great way to find out what’s coming in future iterations of the software.

As mentioned earlier, the latest build provides option to place apps side by side. When the feature is available to public, users can drag and hold one app to left or right side of the screen to use multiple apps at the same time. While it’s unclear when the new feature will be available, we might not have to wait too long.
