Google’s Chromebooks will soon support split screen Android apps

Google’s Chromebooks will soon support split screen for Android users.

While Google’s Francois Beaufort teased the feature last year, it is now available in ChromeOS Canary.

Once enabled via using the chrome://flags/#enable-split-view flag you’ll now be able to snap apps to either the left or the right. It works only in tablet mode of course, and therefore only works on hypothetical ChromeOS tablets or hybrid PCs which support tablet mode.

ChromeOS already supports the ability to split-screen Web apps in desktop mode, and this is simply a logical extension of that feature into tablet mode.

Its worth noting that ChromeOS in desktop mode allows you to use Android apps as normal like a regular PC.
