Verizon Galaxy Note 2 getting Gmail and YouTube multi-window support soon?
Verizon has just started selling its own Galaxy Note 2 version, and it looks like consumers are already asking Samsung questions about the future of the device, particularly about the multi-window feature. One user who is apparently interested in seeing Gmail and YouTube in multi-window on the phablet contacted the company via Twitter asking why these two apps can’t be used in such a way.
Samsung answered his question revealing that the two apps will soon get multi-window support, without actually detailing launch plans for a software update that would bring such functionality.
In time, probably more apps will get such support from Samsung. But if you have purchased, or are planning to get a Galaxy Note 2 from Verizon you should be aware that right now there aren’t that many multi-window-friendly apps to choose from.
However, Droid-Life also points out that one particular app downloaded from the Play Store, Total Commander, already populates the list of apps that can be used with multi-window after is install. That seems to indicate that developers could offer multi-windows support in their apps, although that still remains to be confirmed by Samsung.
While you wait for more apps to support multi-window, let us know what apps you’d like to use in such a manner on the Galaxy Note 2!
