Chrome OS Canary channel gains split-screen functionality for Android apps


With Chrome OS conceivably coming to tablet frame factors soon, it bodes well that Google will include highlights that improve the Android applications encounter. One way it will do this is by including part screen usefulness for Android applications, which is currently accessible in the Canary channel…

At this moment, in Chrome OS, you can put Chrome windows and inherent applications like the adding machine next to each other. In any case, on the off chance that you attempt to do that with Android applications introduced from the Play Store, it simply doesn’t work.

As found by ChromeUnboxed, the Canary Chrome OS channel has as of late been refreshed to permit Android applications in split-screen mode.

The way the element works is basically indistinguishable to how most work area working frameworks function. Simply drag and hold one application to one side or right half of the screen, and once it’s set up, you can put a moment application on the opposite side.

Furthermore, as should be obvious from the screen capture above, Android applications will work next to each other with Chrome OS windows.

On the off chance that you need to try this component out on your Chromebook, you will first need to put your gadget into Developer Mode and afterward join the Canary channel. As this will introduce pre-alpha programming, we don’t suggest attempting this. It will be best for most clients to sit tight for the component to hit one of the other Chrome OS channels.
